Thanks Ken!

Since this is the second mention of New Age and alternative philosophies, I'm feeling very encouraged about my current romance.

An editor said it was light and loopy in 2005 when I was editing it - then life intruded and taught me a lot more.

These two posts are affirmations that I am back on my fiction track.
