Hi, I’m Judith Ashley, author of The Sacred Women’s Circle series, romantic women’s fiction that honors pagan spiritual practices that nourish the soul. My stories show you what life could be like if you had a place like The Circle where you are unconditionally accepted, supported and loved. And where you do overcome obstacles and find your happily-ever-after.
What touches my heart? Many things.
The beloved faces of friends and family.
The exited greetings from my great grandchildren.
The characters in my books who show up in dreams and visions until I write their stories down.
The unconditional support I receive within my circle of writer friends, especially my #FTB, Windtree Press writing buddies and the Genre-istas.
A smile automatically pops up and my heart lightens when I see babies, dogs and kittens. There is something about their exuberance, their joy as they interact with the world that resonates in my heart.
In addition to the above list, the wonders, the glories I see around me in the natural world gladden my heart, bring a sense of wonder even after more than seven decades of bearing witness.
As I write this second draft of this blog post which you will be reading in less than 24 hours, I have a light on as it is still dark outside. However, as I shuffled into my office, hot cup of tea in hand, I caught a glimpse of Grandmother Moon…just a sliver. I put my tea down and turned off the light.
Standing and watching that sliver of light, the world, my world anyway, righted itself. Tension I was holding in my body eased. Scrambling thoughts running through my brain stopped. In that quiet time of only a few minutes, peace settled over me.
Even though I’ll go through my day with only five hours of sleep, I’ll manage better because of the moments I shared with Grandmother Moon.
Where in the natural world do you find peace?
