Book signing and talk in Chicagoland

Thanks to the folks at Congregation Or Shalom in Vernon Hills, IL, for allowing me to speak during Friday night services earlier this month about why and how I wrote What Brings You JOY? and 8 Ways to Bring More JOY Into Your Life. It warmed my heart to see old friends and meet some new ones. I’ve gotten great feedback from the evening, including Andi Freier, who wrote this week: “Most of us get caught in the noise of our everyday lives and sometimes forget to take note of the little things that make us smile. Thank you for moving my joy radar to the front of my brain.”

Autumn in Milwaukee

Trees like this sure make me smile! What other simple things in nature bring you joy?

Stunning sunsets

I try to look at the sky every night just before sundown. It’s like a new, ever-changing work of art right before my eyes! Here’s one which especially took my breath away. It’s obvious I’m not a professional photographer, but it gives you an idea!

We learn something new every day

CarolHere’s what I learned after creating What Brings You JOY? I put incredible effort into the formatting of the paperback, including the use of text boxes, etc, to make the layout interesting. To my disappointment, I now know that what looks great in a printed book does not necessarily carry over into e-book formats—due to multiple kinds of e-formats plus  a variety of font sizes.

If you buy the e-book and the formatting looks strange, please accept my apologies. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the content just as much!
