My rainbow..

"The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud."

I was driving yesterday and had to pullover to capture this beautiful double rainbow.

Aromatic loveliness..

 This is one of my favorite lines from the book.. It's so simple, but it shows the power Brooklyn had over Song. ...So delicate and sweet.

Timeless love story...

"A romance that will melt your heart. A nice sweet, sexy story. I loved the bond between the characters and watching the relationships grow. The narration was well done too. Sydney's writing was lyrical. After reading this I would like to visit Seoul and find my own Wen."

Now available on Audible and I- Tunes.

The road to Mount Greylock at dusk...

Vacation in Massachusetts.

As you can see the fog was pretty thick; as soon as we made our way to the top it felt like the temperature dropped about twenty degrees. It was truly a beautiful sight to behold.

Art exhibit:"Until" by Nick Cave..


This was one of my favorite exhibits at Mass Moca. Just walking beneath and gazing up was stunning. There were so many hidden messages in this piece.. Which made it all the more enjoyable.

Audiobook listeners have their say..

"Brooklyn's Song by Sydney Arrison has a great story with strong characters. The story is your normal cop falls for victim storyline but why makes this one better than most is the characters. You really get to like them and want them to be happy."


"Long enough have you dream'd contemptible dreams, now I wash the gum from your eyes. You must habit yourself to the dazzle of the light and of every moment of your life. Long have you timidly waded holding a plank by the shore, Now I will you to be a bold swimmer."

Learn from your elders.. I'm a "fisherwoman"

My mother grew up on a farm and she loves nature, animals and fishing.  As a child I never took an interest in fishing. This weekend I went fishing with my Mom, and I absolutely loved it. I actually caught six fish. There's something about being on the lake with the Summer sun touching your skin; hearing the sounds of birds and bugs  flying about. Seeing the lines flying through the air and hearing the humming of the rods being reeled in... It's as beautiful as the finest piece of music you'll ever listen to.

Tuesday Teaser..

The Last Firefly

Layla was behind the wheel; she’s known for being a terrible driver and having a short temper. I can say with certainty that her temper can be controlled at times, her driving skills… Not so much. My imaginary brakes were wearing out as Layla tailgated cars in front of her, zipped through every yellow light and sharply turned each corner. At one point she casually checked her GPS going full speed ahead. 
“Layla, keep your eyes on the road; I’ll check the GPS!” I yelled, as we narrowly missed another collision. The bagel with cream cheese I had for breakfast was yearning to escape.

Gillian wants to know..

The following questions were asked by avid reader Gillian V. Thanks so much for contacting me, I really enjoyed reading and answering your questions. If you have a question or two..Please send to:
  • You are given the opportunity to meet one of the following, who would you choose? Someone guaranteed to have meaningful conversations with or someone guaranteed to have amazing physical connections with?  Meaningful conversation, the conversation may have a lasting impact on my life and I may learn something new.
  • Would you rather join a book club or an adventure club? Adventure club sounds more exciting.
  • What  do you do to relax?  Read poetry, listen to music, and most of all go biking. It's one of the most peaceful things you can do. I have a very beautiful trail that goes around a lake and the view is just lovely. So not only do you get a good workout, but you also get out into the fresh air and just enjoy the tranquility. It gives me time to  clear my head and think, not only about writing, but also about life.
  •  What's your dream vacation?  I would love to visit the Jeju Island.
