A rabbit out of my hat

7 Apr

MagicTrickI still chuckle when I think of Bullwinkle J Moose and his promise to pull a rabbit out of his hat.  Speaking of performing magic tricks – I finished my book! It was sent to a publisher here in Austin on Monday.

The title is Sick & Tired. . .and Sexy, Living Beautifully with Chronic Illness. I have been writing it for a bit more than two years, but when I decided to retire at the end of December, I committed myself to finishing it. I worked for 4-5 hours each day for the past three months, and Voila!  Bullwinkle would be jealous.

It is a Body/Mind/Spirit/Style guide to feeling good, having more energy, and keeping that sexy part of ourselves alive and well, in spite of chronic illness.  But, I believe it has great information for everyone.  Who couldn’t use more energy?

I’m going to leave you with a sneak-peek of the piece of art being used on the “Flaming-June”-by-Sir-Fredrick-Leightoncover: It’s an all-time favorite of mine called “Flaming June,” by Sir Fredrick Leighton. Isn’t she beautiful?

XO Donna

    We should recreate YOU as that beauty. That painting has inspired me for so very long. Congrats, Donna. Brenda
