Jim Murdoch presents Music to write to (part one) posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, “Some people like to write with music in the background, others need complete silence. There is no right way but if you do find music helps you focus then you might find this list of lesser known modern classics by Scottish writer Jim Murdoch worth investigating further.

Writing Resource

Byteful Travel presents How to Create a Hit in Any Artistic Medium posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “Believe it or not, I have absolutely no idea which of my works will become popular on the web and which will be ignored. And if you’re honest with yourself, you don’t either. Sure, some people invest lots of money in SEO, but when creative work is approached with search engines in mind first and people second, it too often becomes only a temporary delight and doesn’t help you grow your audience or your credibility. So how do you create a “hit”? Here’s the secret: You have to be prolific before you can enter the magic.”

Laura Dawson presents Conquer Headlines and Shine! posted at Design Quotes Digital Marketing Blog ~ Design Quotes Blog ~ Digital Marketing Blog, saying, “Writing great content is enough of a challenge in itself, without the possibility that it may not even be read – all because your headline sucks.

Byteful Travel presents Japanese Tea Garden Review: Home of San Francisco’s Hidden Sea Monster posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “San Francisco, CA – At first glance, the Japanese Tea Garden nestled within Golden Gate Park seems innocent enough. Birds frolic in its ponds. Verdant trees tower high above your head. And everything seems to be at perfect peace. At first glance, at least. What you don’t know is that the Japanese Tea Garden is home to a disguised Sea Monster, hidden in plain sight. And somehow, it’s still a place of Zen.”

Thank you so very much, to all the authors and reader’s who have supported this sight. Please continue to check back as Writing as a Sacred Art will be updated by February 27, 2012. Once again, thank you for your support and enjoy this edition of Lovely Words.

Inspiration

 
Tom Hass presents Dare to Build an Empire? posted at Personal Hack, saying, “I?m building my empire. No I?m not talking about a business empire like the Fords, Hiltons or the Trumps. No disrespect, one can learn all sorts of things from them. I?m talking about a new kind of empire. One built on freedom, responsibility, craziness, randomness, and hard work.”
 
Byteful Travel presents Why Coit Tower is one of San Francisco’s Best-Kept Secrets posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “A sane person would have taken a bus or a car up to San Francisco’s Coit Tower, but I didn’t. Instead, I walked the wild San Francisco streets up to the top of Telegraph Hill. To scale that 83 meter hill, I even walked up stairs at points; and when I finally reached the Coit Tower parking lot, I was rewarded with a view of the bay and Alcatraz Island in the distance. But little did I know I was about to get my socks knocked off. (high-rez photos included)”

I loved spending time with them; and my grandmother, who grew up in France, was especially warm and loving. Just being around her was a comforting feeling. My grandfather was different.”

Isabel Anders presents Dancing Through Time and Tradition | BlogHer posted at BlogHer, saying, “Attuning oneself to the rhythms of the year by way of Scripture and holy tradition produces a certain kind of dance—of the mind and spirit.

Writing

 
David Leonhardt presents Proud to Be a Grinch [humour alert] posted at Self-Help Happiness Blog, saying, “It was my first meeting of “GA”. This is not AA (Alchoholics Anonymous). It is not even AAA (American Automobile Association). It is GA…Grinches Anonymous. This is roughly how the meeting went.”
 
Erin Pavlina presents Cultivating Command and Leadership posted at Erin Pavlina – Spiritual Wisdom for Conscious People, saying, “Are you a leader or a follower? Are you willing to step up and take command when the chips are down? Or are you content to let someone else lead? Can you bear the responsibility that comes with command?

Writer’s Resource

 
Byteful Travel presents How to Assemble & Host a Well-Crafted Blog Carnival in 7 Steps posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “Blog Carnivals are a really smart way to get the word out about your work, no matter what you write about. In fact, they have been my favorite way to market Byteful Travel for nearly 2 years now. But actually hosting a blog carnival can complex and isn’t always an easy feat, especially if you’re hosting one with lots of entries. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Why? Because I have developed a great system to assemble a blog carnival in an eloquent way, no matter the size. My own blog carnival, the BTBC, has gotten a lot of praise, so I’m happy to now help others with what I’ve learned in getting to that point.”

Doomsday Dilemma

May 17, 2011

The end of the world is May 21, 20011 and my son and I have a world-ending dilemma; what kind of cake should we buy? My son and I have a tradition; whenever someone predicts the end of the world we have cake. I started this tradition because I remember being afraid of the end of the world when I was a child.

My parents were divorced and their families practiced different religions. So one week I was told I was going to hell. And the next at another place of worship I was told I was really going to hell for visiting the previous place of worship. One of these places of worship would periodically predict the end of time. In fact I became a theology major just to find something that resembled truth.

It was a relief to discover Apostle Paul struggled with his followers about end of time issues and not knowing when Jesus would return. I decided long ago to take the Apostle Paul approach to the delay of the parousia; therefore I’m okay with the ambiguity. Although, all these people coming out of the woodwork predicting the end is getting a bit lame. In an effort to avoid confusion for my son, and to somewhat make light of the situation we have cake.  

We have had a lot of cake over the years. This time my son does not even care what kind of cake we purchase; I have to figure it out on my own. How could it be, the end of the world has become ho-hum in our family? What is this world coming to when we cannot get a little enthusiasm for what may be our last day on earth. I figure our last day on earth can’t be so bad if we get to have cake.
