Happy 2010! December 31, 2009

Filed under: Writing and Life — Autumn Macarthur @ 6:57 pm

Wishing love, joy, health, and prosperity to everyone. I hope 2010 will be the year we enjoy our writing and our lives more, give more love and support to others, get more happiness and love back, and do whatever we can to make our part of the world a more peaceful place.

Maybe I will even finally “get it” about internal conflict!
