Author, Judy Howard’s mailing address is Sun City, California, but you will rarely find her there. Instead, you might find the top ranking Amazon author strapped in at the race track ready to check out the Mario Andretti Racing Experience or cruising down Route 66.
Of one thing, you can be sure she is living up to a quote by Henry Thoreau, Howard questions, “How vain is it to sit down and write, when you have not stood up to live?”
“There is nothing more powerful
than an idea whose time has come.”––
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.
When Abraham Lincoln signed the
proclamation to free the slaves, that was an idea whose time had come. Women’s right to vote, another idea whose time had come, as well as
the gay’s right to marriage. 80% of the population have nurtured the idea of writing a book and with the new industry of
self publishing, this too is a powerful
idea whose time has come.

Bob Dylan says the answer is Blowin’ in the wind. Whatever

My energy levelruns close to the cosmic speed limit. I want to go bigger,
faster, higher, and deeper than I have done before. I want to go where no one
else has dreamed of goingand arrive at
a place whereeveryone thought
impossible. That is my idea, my spiritual path.
In my case, like many of us, my way hasbeen scarey and treacherous,breath taking and inspirational, or it has been a long, lonely,
desolate roads in which I believed I would die from the thirst ofwanting what I wanted.
Just like life, I have taken wrong turns, only to discover the beauty of the
unplanned landscape, and realize there
are no mistakes. I have visited places whose windwhispered answers to me when the breeze had
not blown there before, because I passed
through at exactly the right time.
Whatever path I am on it is the
right path at the right time.
