Diane, The California Dreamer 
Author of
"Wednesday WORD"
 

Thanks  to Diane, The California Dreamer, along with occasional guest authors, for providing us with the Wednesday WORD (With special thanks to Heather Sill and Lisa Vaden for past contributions to the WW.)  Diane is currently being featured as a Website Only Author so check back here often to read her newest articles!

Here's to another year of writing for SFPNN.  I can hardly believe it has been 6 years since I won that writing contest and Jeanette asked me write The Wednesday Word. 

Those of you who have been following my weekly column know there have been many changes in the format of the article, and there have been many major changes in my own personal life.

So much has happened in my life the last 18 months when I picked up the only life I knew and moved to Southern California to follow my dream.  Southern California has exceeded my every expectation in every way possible. I've had many surprises both good and other than good.  I have grown in my confidence and know without a doubt exactly what I am made of. 

I continue to amaze myself with my ability to navigate my new area and have grown very accustomed to California being my home now.  I have made many new wonderful friends and joined a great spiritual community where I have grown in leaps and bounds with my own personal spirituality.

I continue to be lead to activities in the area that are ever so enriching to my continued growth.  I often have to pinch myself to remind myself that I am not dreaming or on vacation -- I live here. 

If you have tucked a dream deep inside your heart and soul -- trust and believe it can come true. I am proof of that.  Don't give up -- keep believing.

Here's to another great year ahead for us all!

 

Enjoy the journey!   

Diane

MY SON GREGORY AND I VISIT RODEO DRIVE



THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL - MY FAVORITE PLACE TO SEE CONCERTS





“We’re all in a place to do something of great magnitude and courage.
It does not have to be anything of wide scope,
or even something that a lot of people know about.
It’s about touching the lives of people that cross our path”

--- James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy








FLYING IN A CESSNA; ONE OF MANY NEW EXPERIENCES IN SO CAL




WORDS FOR IT by Julia Cameron

 

I wish I could take language
And fold it like cool, moist rags.
I would lay words on your forehead
I would wrap words on your wrists.
"There, there," my words would say --
Or something better.
I would ask them to murmur,
"Hush" and "Shh, shhh, it's all right."
I would ask them hold you all night.
I wish I could take language
And daub and soothe and cool
Where fever blisters and burns,
Where fever turns yourself against you.
I wish I could take language
And heal the words that were the wounds
You have no names for.

 

--- © Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way
