WHAT INTERESTING THINGS HAVE YOU DONE IN YOUR LIFE?
Most of us have visions of very different lives when we are children. We want to be princesses, kings, movie stars or millionaires. Then life gets in the way. We forget to dream, forget to play, forget we ever wanted to be brilliant and amazing.
In my life I have been everything from a small business owner, to a massage therapist, to a stay home mom, to a tarot card reader, to a romance writer. In many ways I loved all my different choices. They each said something about my personality; they each added something to my growth as a person.
In The Artist’s Way, Stella Cameron consistently asks the reader to choose several different career paths. Name five other things you could do with your life, she urges in just about every chapter. And even the rich and famous can find their road in life curves in many different directions. Here are just a few:
Matthew McConaughey intended to become a lawyer.
Jimmy Stewart started out as an architect.
Nicole Kidman was a massage therapist in Australia (A job dear to my own heart.)
Dan Brown was a singer-songwriter and even released two CDs in the early 90’s.
Mike Rowe from the TV series, Dirty Jobs once sang with the Boston Opera. (Makes me want him more now…lolol)
Graham Chapman of Monty Python studied at the London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Gene Simmons of KISS fame taught elementary school in New York’s Spanish Harlem district.
Angelina Jolie once aspired to be a funeral director. (Yes, I can see it.)
Eva Longoria studied to be a physical therapist.
Steve Martin considered being a philosophy teacher before getting into comedy.
Tom Cruise briefly attended a Franciscan seminary and aspired to become a Catholic priest.
So what interesting things have you done in your life?

For the ladies of the Red Masks pleasure waits behind every door…and no one is ever who they seem to be.

But while Ryan knows Alaina’s true identity, she remains unaware of his deception until the masks come off and she is faced with a decision. Can she continue to submit to his will now she knows who he really is? And when he proposes a lifetime contract, can Alaina sign on the dotted line?
A Romantica® contemporary ménage erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Ryan Marquis stared in displeasure as his cell phone rang. He had a strict policy of no business between the hours of six on Saturday night, and noon Sunday, that brief block of time set aside every week to satisfy his need for rest and relaxation—along with some decadent indulgence when the need arose.
He frowned as the phone rang again, noting it was now three minutes after the hour, before picking it up to see who dared break into his personal time, his frown twisting into a semi-smile as he noted the number and answered.
“Bon nuit, mon cher,” came a husky voice across the line. “I have someone for you tonight. Someone you have been waiting for.” Read the rest of this entry »
