You may remember, a few weeks ago I went to Julia Cameron's Floor Sample booksigning. While chatting with her, I mentioned how meaningful it would be for me if she gave me a quote for my book cover. In 1998, I had gathered my friends together, and we started our own Artist's Way group. We met every-other-week for almost two years! And in my 'morning pages' (one of the things Julia says to do in her book, The Artist's Way), I plotted out how I'd like to write a book and create a website. I hadn't lost even an ounce and dieting wasn't on my mind. You see how these things work! Lo 'n behold, in 2001 I permanently removed over 50 pounds, created a website and now my book, Our Lady of Weight Loss ~ Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal is hitting the stands in just 10 weeks.
And just this past week, I received an email from Julia Cameron, offering me the following quote for my book.
"The best makeovers begin from the inside out. Positive change comes from positive actions. Our Lady of Weight Loss links laughter to self-worth. It makes the phrase 'lighten up' quite literal."- Julia Cameron, author of 'The Artist's Way.'
Dreams do come true.
