Stepping Out

My best friend asked me if I wanted to ride to Hendersonville with her while she went to see her dermatologist. It was a way for us to get to visit and the ride up there is just beautiful. Sooo...looking forward to the conversation, the company, and the coffee shop there I enthusiastically agreed! While she's off to see the doctor, I go to the local coffee shop where the smells are intoxicating and inviting and the atmosphere is so very alluring. I've always wanted to sit in a coffee shop like they do on "Friends" and read and look like I belonged there!

So I get my coffee and head to the couch in front of the fireplace. I'm living the dream! There on the opposite couch was a distinguished looking gentleman who kindly put my mind at ease that I was not taking anyone's spot. We struck up a conversation and what an interesting man. He is a documentary film maker from Los Angeles and has won an emmy for a documentary on Islam. It was such a blast sitting and talking with him. During the conversation, I mentioned the term that I feel like best describes me, Elegant Bohemian, and he loved it. He encouraged me to write and I now accept that challenge.

So thank you David Saunders, wherever you are for giving me a little prodding. Hopefully my writing will improve over time and I'll relax a bit with it. It's taken me 41 years and I'm still discovering new talents and quirks, but I know I've hit on the core of who is Serene. That's pretty exciting to me!

    blog for a while now but have been turned off mainly
    because I've always assumed it required tons of work. What do you think? Thanks

  15. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
