I know I have been terribly absent and it’s because I was busy…being myself, Francesca and writing/illustrating/formatting/publishing….do it all for my very own first children’s book and about a decade before I thought it could even be possible.
The power of healing with energy such as Reiki and EFT has brought such amazing change inside of myself that my creative juices started pushing again and I just went for it and after working and working on different ideas etc. I decided it was time to go for it.
Flora Bloom is indeed my inspiration and even though I don’t agree with everything she says I admire how she always speaks her mind and how she stands up for what she considers to be right versus unfair for all. I would say she is a mixture of my younger combative self and my older and wiser me just with a lot more spunk that I would generally show to the world.
As a secret writer and artist I have spent many years living a double life, pretending to be just like everyone else on the outside while knowing exactly how different I truly was and still am.
I do believe in the basic goodness of people but in my 44 years on this earth I have seen a lot of “good” people doing a lot of “bad” stuff and one’s confidence on the goodness of humans may fade over time due to actual happenings, not just words being said.
This book is a way to go back to simple roots of love, family, and friendship. No matter how sad and down one can feel just remember that Love will win, always, so don’t give up hope, give up those who make you feel crappy about yourself and in peace move on and look for people who empower you and make you feel like the marvelous being you were always meant to be, because the universe does want us all to shine and we shine much better when surrounded by people who empower us rather than putting us down.
Peace to all and remember, vegan is peace so consider taking the first step toward a more peaceful and loving existence.
