Eureka!
Friday, October 7th, 2011

I’m here in Eureka Springs for the Ozark Writers Conference. Sis and I arrived last night and stayed in the Crescent Hotel. Two other friends, Brinda B. and Cyndi d’Alba were there as well. We had a formal five-course meal in the dining room—Lord, I’d forgotten how fabulous foie gras tastes! Anyway, we went on the ghost tour. I took tons of pictures, plenty with orbs and a few suspicious shadows, but nothing as creepy as my first visit here in June. I really think the ghosts were attracted to the 7-year-old then.

Today, we’re representing our RWA chapter and Rose’s Colored Glasses. When we arrived, they didn’t have a table for our stuff. My karma is just shit lately. Any suggesions from y’all for how to scrub it clean?

This morning David Morell (the Rambo creator) spoke. He had some very good advice, first and foremost being, “Become a first-rate version of yourself, not a second-rate version of someone else.” That’s so freaking true.

Remember, I have two contests running. Be sure to check out yesterday’s post for details!

    It’s my fault the ghosts didn’t haunt you last night. Ghosts just don’t like me!

    Can’t wait to visit with the big cats tonight and tomorrow

    Going on a ghost tour is on my to-do list but I am so easily freaked out I fear for the ear-drums of the people that go with me haha

    “Become a first-rate version of yourself, not a second-rate version of someone else.” I really like that!

    Sometimes karma is just shit. I find that if I find the nugget of good in the pile of bad and just smile through it, things tend to turn out great. I am a glass is half full kind of girl! Let’s face it, my husband may have taken a softball to the eye but it just meant that he was in the emergency room down the street from AAD so I was able to attend at least a little of the conference! See, glass is half full! Have fun at the conference!

    I’m not sure how to go about cleaning your karma, but I will try sending some good thoughts your way. I really like David Morell’s advice. I will have to remember that. Can’t wait to see the pictures that you have taken. Too bad it wasn’t like your first time. Have fun with the big cats.

    sage does wonders! light some and wave it around you, think happy thoughts! :)
    also, if you can find a rock shop, or wiccan shop, there are certain rocks and crystals that you can get. ill look some up for you. crystals are a huge plus! (if you can get one, rinse it, and carry it in your pocket, it should help)
    hope things get better! have a ton of fun for us!

    Thanks for all the good thoughts coming my way—and the advice! And yes, Shadow, there’s a very good rock shop in my home town, so if you come up with any stones that will help purify the nasty stuff seeping into my life, I’d appreciate it!
