The Zzz's Have Arrived

All good things come to an end.

I've survived the April 2015 A to Z Blogger's Challenge. I don't use a lot of "Z" words so no need to try to force any out now. One aspect of "Z" I thoroughly enjoy is catching my Zzz's and now is as good a time as any to catch them, regarding my blogging.

Salvadore Dali, "Sleep"

This challenge, with its request that you blog six days a week, with just one day off, is a blogging marathon alright. A marathon is set up to push you to your maximum.

Maximum reached.

I've never been shy about catching my Zzz's. I love a good rest, call it beauty sleep if you want. Whatever, I know my body and mind well and realize when the Zzz's are needed. My body and mind have requested a rest.

Z Request noted.

So listening to my body, mind and tapped spirit, I'm off for a bit, taking my blogging Zzz's.

  1. Salvadore Dali, "Sleep" is an interesting piece. Kind of creepy.

    Now that we've reached the end of the Challenge, I can't wait to catch some Z's. :)


  2. Stephanie,
    Yay! I enjoyed your letters!

  3. Hi Stephanie .. Zzzz - I definitely need some of that .. but it's a good Challenge and worth while for the people and friends we make in the blogging world. I do like the Dali one ... his pictures mesmerise ... cheers Hilary

    1. Dali was a true original! I agree with you about all the new connections we've made. Wonderful to discover your blog!

  4. Taking a break after the A-Z is always a good thing. I am glad I stopped by and discovered your blog :)

    1. Likewise. I've enjoyed yours and will continue to do so I'm sure.

  5. Love Dali's works. We all need to catch a break now and the Zzzzz's are calling me

    1. Thanks for all that great research with wonderful pictures you posted during the challenge. Glad to have made a connection.

  6. I'm talk about exhausting. It's not really the posts--I wrote all of those in March. It's trying to read everyone's blogs and reply to comments on a daily basis. There's no way to get around to everyone every single day. Normally when you're visiting blogs, at least half of them haven't posted a new blog since the last time you commented, but not during A to Z!

    1. That's so true. Hopefully you're getting settled in now.

  7. It's been a fantastic, interesting, exhausting month. I'm off for some ZZZz too!

    I'm looking forward to reading your regular posts :-)

  8. Congrats on reaching the end, and bringing us all along!


  9. Beth thank you. Don't be a stranger but for now a little rest is definitely in order.

  10. Congrats Stephanie and it's been a month full of blogging that earned us new friends and creative satisfaction:)

    1. Absolutely! Thanks for your contributions to my blog through comments! I enjoyed your stories.

  11. Thank you for visiting and congrats on completing this A-to-Z Challenge. There were days I didn't think I'd make it . . . and so now we can all welcome a few of those zzzz's, so aptly illustrated with Dali,, the darling of dreams.

  12. I think we all love our Zzz's at the end of the challenge :) I even made my Z topic into little Zzz's - it's been nice to get some since we stopped!

Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss Workshop

Happy to announce that my 6th book has been published by a small publishing house in England called Green Magic Publishing! You can find it here.

It is a very unique book, that has been a long time coming - 14 years actually! When I began writing it my adult children were still living at home and my youngest, who is about to graduate from high school, was little more than a toddler. Time flies but book writing seems to take forever!

The release of, Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss feels like a birth. It has had growing pains, changes and the labor of bringing it into this world - a labor of love.

I'm offering a series of workshops at Life Force Arts Center in Chicago, to kick off the book and get you into its unique type of hands-on healing and transformation work. This first one is inspired by Welsh Goddess Cerrwiden. Following is a description and how you can sign up at Life Force Arts Center.

A to Z Challenge: A Month of African Proverbs

I'm all in, once again.  This is my third year of participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. This will be an intense spurt of reading and writing for me, as I'm also editing one book and writing another. I will do my best to stay in, and keep up!

For the month of April (2017) I will be blogging and visiting other blogs. This is a fun and meaningful practice that I've taken on to increase conversations with other readers and bloggers. I am always happy to see newcomers and, whether you comment or not, you are welcome.

A Month of African Proverbs
My 2017 theme is drawn from my soon-to-be released book "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss." I have a section of my book that contains African Proverbs. I will be spending time on each of those proverbs, exploring their meaning and inspiration regarding losing weight or otherwise transforming yourself.

Here is the definition of the word proverb: (from Latin: proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying…
