About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

To my Fellow Writers, Artists, Creators and Misfit Poets:

One of my all time favorite Authors....(yes, I do read)...Elizabeth Gilbert shared this on her Facebook page, and I found it so Powerful, and so Worthwhile, that I felt the need to share it with my friends, with perfect strangers who may stop by and find it here...however, and whomever should find themselves here, contemplating on clicking and watching the video below, do not hesitate, I promise you, IF you are a writer, an artist, a pottery maker, a painter, a interior designer, an Architect, a musician, song writer....this is something I highly recommend you watch.

I KNOW I will be watching this over and over as a lifelong reminder of a message I wish to NEVER forget.

Thanks Elizabeth Gilbert for sharing it with me, and thank you Ira Glass for being such an Inspiration to the rest of us!
