6.21.22 Summer Bella Style

2

It’s Summer Bella style! Check out the newest issue of Bella Grace’s Bookzine Issue #32! I have two pieces in this delicious introduction to summer, “The Girl Who Steals Time,” about making every moment count, and “Magic After Midnight,” for all of us who find that night is the keeper of our most productive and bewitching moments. Below, I’ve shared a quote from each! I hope you will check into both and let me know your thoughts. YOUR words, thoughts, and wonderings mean more to me than you could ever know. They keep me writing. Please enjoy the sneak peek.

All my love,

Elle

“The Girl Who Steals Time”

  • “I’m willing to bet I’m not the only three-to-eight-minute girl out there struggling to squeeze time out to the continuum just to have another moment to treasure. Time is a relative foe. Lately, I’ve been thinking about the seconds I’ve stretched, and when I ask myself if I regret any of them, I find that I just don’t.”

“Magic After Midnight”

  • “Being in the space between sleep and awake and dreaming forces you to think in a place that is still. It is a moment given patiently by the night, one where day wouldn’t give the same allowance. In the dozy twilight hours that don’t exist for most, your imagination is invited to play. When you find yourself awake without meaning to be, unintentionally lucid, use it!”

9.30.21 Where Colors Burn

4

“And what once felt so predictable –
a canopy of breeze-tossed green
is now an explosion of brilliance …
colors that burn just to look at …”

If Fall were a woman, in the words of the eminent Jane Austen, “She would certainly be a fearsome thing to behold.” Imagine all of that brilliance … all of that passion … burning in one spirit, lighting up the world as quick as a spark and as memorable as the impression of fireworks’ afterglow. How I hope to hold a fraction of that light – that vivacity.

Bella Grace Issue 29 is filled to the brim with all things captivating. I was excited to see a throwback piece from Grace Notes of mine, “Fall is Made for Reinvention.” Please take some time this fall to listen slowly, love deeply, and soak in all the places where colors burn.

Wind chimes and wishes,
