Ink ‘n Doodles lives…

A bunch of years ago (wow, not yesterday?) my friend Rob Suarez started a creative workshop called Ink ‘n Doodles, a fun place for people to go play. We found not just a place to hang out and share our stuff, but a place to push ourselves a little — maybe take some risks, all in an environment of acceptance and support, and always with the exhortation to “go create something!”

We did!

Rob wrote a couple of novels, notably Murder by Design which is also a podcast. Chuch wrote an epic series, The Secret Society of Seven Sorcerers which is also an amazing podcast (check out Interview with a Wizard, too!).  Wency launched into blogging and no doubt, even more creativity in the classroom, and faced a different kind of challenge: he’s running marathons! What a beast!

What about little ole me? Oh, I’ve been writing here and there.

And today, I am a guest at my friend Pat Gohn‘s column, A Word in Season over at the great website,

Holy smokes! I mean, Viva Guadalupe!

Here’s an excerpt…go leave Pat a nice comment so she invites me back to her playground 🙂

I have fallen in love with a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe. “She” stands just to the right of the altar in our parish chapel, solitary and without the bright sunburst that we associate with Guadalupe. Posed with hands in prayer, wearing a sweet look that matches the serene, simple, and muted colors of her robes, her stillness and the simplicity inherent in her design soothes me. I find peace when I am before her.

  1. Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, great blog!
