  1. Julie,

    Appreciate your visit. Just added you on.

    My wife has a saying I love. “We believe in a life of grace and dignity.” The blog is part of my effort to reach out to the folks in the world of like mind, and your site indicates y’all live that way too.

    Thanks for adding me on your blogroll. I’m on FaceBook, too. I find I have more musicians there and writers on wordpress, but both are open to good folks everywhere.

    1. Thanks Dr. B,

      That was very kind of you. I think your wife’s saying is just sweet. I believe she has a point there. I always strive towards healthy values. Often I fall short of those but I think it is important to always have goals of loveliness, kindness, goodness and integrity.


      By the way, your blog, helpful comments and book are fantastic.

  2. Hey Jules,

    I’m so glad to have a peek into your life. I remember your journal writing sitting at our little two-person marble-topped kitchen table next to the window. I remember the time your mom sent you a pair of shoes with Mrs. Field’s cookies tucked in them and we were so excited to have a real chocloate chip cookie, until we realized they smelled and tasted like your shoes! (I’ve never quite been able to eat Mrs. Field’s since!)

    I love that we can fast forward 21 years and say that we are both still writing and still enjoying life. Add my blog to your Blogroll and I’ll add yours to mine πŸ™‚

    Keep writing


  3. Just a note to say there are more people out here who will not respond to your writings that are writers learning the craft. Your post on learning was excellent. Keep up the good work. Show us the universal characters you meet, the food you eat and the music you hear.

    Don’t be worried how many people read, be more interested in how true your words.

    Good Luck

    1. Thank you for taking the time to write the comments above. Believe it or not, I thought at length about your comments. I considered how to be truthful to myself and my readers, to be upfront and to try to convey the essence of my life.

      I hope you become a regular visitors.

      My best to you and yours.


      By the way, each and every time one of my readers writes excellent or outstanding about my posts, it makes me smile. Thank you for that.

  4. Julie,

    Love your writing and really enjoy the beautiful pictures. It shows that you take your time with the content and the photography. It’s an inspiration to me and when I open your blog every time it takes me back to the days I waited with anticipation for Martha Stewart to do her next show. Thanks for being you and exposing myself and others to a different part of life and through your boundless thought provoking wisdom! Cheers~

    1. Hey congratulations on having your screenplay being picked up by a major network and being turned into a film. What a fantastic dream come true. Friends, worth the click!


  10. Hi Julie,

    I wrote to Annika the other day about the English books, I have seen that you would like to have the list. You can send me your email and then I will send you the file .xls


  11. Thanks, Julie! Hope to hear from you then! If you need any information do not hesitate to ask!

  12. Julie,
    Have just run through your blog and found it lovely, so filled with a positive energy. Good for you!

    Funny thing, I have seen your comments on Bruce’s FB!

    Anyway, love the Buddha story about accepting “gifts”, so very true.

    Take care! Ciao.

    1. Great to see you friend. I love it when people come across my blog. It reminds me of what it is like to see a great friend after many years. The friendship picks up exactly as you left it. Friends are AWESOME for that. Time nor distance can stand between you.


  13. Congrats on passing 5000 visitor mark! WOW that was a huge leap in readers, so exciting honey! You are amazing, I will keep saying it! xxx

  14. Hey Julie, I wanted you to know I wrote a blog post about your blog and your ebook. Take a look and let me know if you get traffic from my blog. I sure hope you do!

  15. Julie — I found your site from Blogging without a Blog (Barbara) and I loved this “About Julie!” very much, especially the swimming story. Now that you’re swimming away from the chocolate cake, what are swimming towards?

    I hope you will find blogging as much fun as I have. I’ve been at since 2007 and it’s allowed my own creativity to expand, but most of all, I have been lucky enough to meet the most wonderful people from all the world.

    Enjoy it…I like your site very much:~)

  16. Julie,

    Hope this finds you well. Somehow your comment just now came thru about the WNCW radio show, but if you heard it, you would indeed be the listener from the longest distance away.

    If you’ll send me an e-mail with an address, I’ll get a copy of “The Mandolin Case” out to you. We are tempoarily out of stock on Amazon, (formatting for Kindle and IPad) but should be up and running again very soon.

    Ain’t this blog world the greatest?

    Dr. B

    1. Ha ha ha Jaclyn Rae,

      You and I both know who the brilliant one is. It is MOST certainly a young girl named JR who has the courage to share inspirational messages one after the other.

      Thanks for the lift though! I appreciate it.


  17. Kudos on having the courage to live out your dream. Most people are too stuck in their rut to attempt it and live out lives of quiet desperation.

    Blessings on you and yours
    John Wilder

  18. Ciao Bella! Meant to reply to your lovely comment/compliment here as well. Enjoying your blog and I actually really like your About page. No editing needed girl! Looks like quite a few people agree with me =) Definitely adding you to my link list. So nice to “meet” you!

  19. your story sounds like it could be a cool movie πŸ™‚ it takes guts to do what you did…..pick up & move miles away….I wish I had the same adventurous spirit.

  20. Thank you for creating such an inspiring blog filled with hope and positivity x

  24. Great story and great blog Julie!
    I too left corporate America at the age of 30, but headed in a bit of a different direction. I moved to a tiny village in Guyana, South America where there is no electricity or running water! I obtained funding from the EU to open a computer education school in this village. We are totally solar powered, we teach free classes to 30 adult and secondary school students 3 times per week. My family and I needed a change, so we made that change happen. Now we are able to make changes happen for other people every day.
    Life is a blessing too rich to keep to yourself!
