“I am sorry, Charmeine, for so many things it is hard to express them all, but I am going to try.”
He took a big breath, and looked in her eyes. “I am sorry for not supporting you. I am sorry for not believing in you. I am sorry for not having faith in you. I am sorrym Charmeine. If you let me show you, for the rest of my life until the end of time, I will never doubt you again.”
“Tabbruis, I can’t do this now.”
“Please let me finish.” He gently held her chin, looked into her eyes and declared, “Charmeine you are my life. You are my light. If you go back to Long Island…”
She walked to the terrace stone wall. “Tabbruis, it isn’t so easy putting Jack and Jill back together again. I really need to be alone.”
“Look at me this time, Charmeine. I have to say my peace, and I will leave.” He stood beside her.
She turned and faced him with her hands defiantly across her chest and sighed.
“If you go back to Long Island, I will accept it, but let me go and be near you. Let me live close to you. I can buy any kind of house or apartment you wish for your own privacy. You do not need to see me, just let me be proximate to you, for you are the center of my Earth. God knows I cannot live without you. However, you will never have to lay your eyes on me. This is what I ask. Nevertheless, please forgive me, Charmeine. Forgive me enough to let me just be close to you. If you abandon me, I will not survive. Wherever you go, I will go with you. Whatever you want, I will give it to you.”
He unfolded her arms and took her hands which sparked. He unclenched her fists and drew them up in front of them, palm to palm. Her sparks began to go up and down their bodies, enveloping them with light.
“Tabbruis, do you remember the first time this happened? You were trying to convince me not to leave and sacrifice myself to the Elder Council.”
“Yes, I remember, my love.” He drew nearer to her. “I know you cannot lie to me. So answer me this, do you have the strength to be without me?”
I love the part where Tabbruis says that he just wants to be near Charmeine.
It brings a tear to my eye today.
So much love…
Enjoy the video, it’s another song that makes me shiver.
Lots of love, Emily

1. Be KIND . . .
If I am not kind, then I should expect to be treated badly. It may not be today… but it may be a time when I really need it.
2. Don’t be HAUGHTY . . .
I am the first person to say that I am not the expert in anything.
3. Read other Author’s work without an AGENDA . . .
No one in the world wants to be pre-judged. You have a genre that you feel comfortable with, that’s great. However, branch out and test the waters with other genres without any judgement. You will be happy you did!
4. Always read a book from COVER to COVER . . .
If you talk to a person, you don’t walk away during mid-sentence – that would be rude. Don’t do that to your fellow Authors!
5. Be good to YOURSELF . . .
You are important, if your brain isn’t rested and happy, then your work will be compromised. Use common sense. Take care of your best resource . . . yourself!
6. Take time for WRITING . . .
Shut out the world and sit down to write. It doesn’t take much time, if you are centered. I use earphones and listen to music. You may find sitting outside on your porch works or getting up in the middle of night? Find your niche.
7. Don’t get trapped into thinking every word that is written has to be PERFECT . . .
Perfection doesn’t exist. I have no doubt that every great Author has to re-write and/or edit. Don’t let your creativity be stifled by perfection.
8. You have to be ENGAGED . . .
You need to educate yourself thoroughly about Social Media, and you can’t be afraid to put yourself and your work out there with WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.
9. BREATHE. . .
Rome wasn’t built in day, and neither is a career. You have to work, put in your dues and take your time. Don’t rush yourself. Know that being an Author is hard work. Give yourself time and relax to enjoy life.
10. This is the most important lesson I have learned . . . Karma is a Bitch!
It seems my first rule is like my 10th . . . huh . . . could be something to that, you know? If you review, write or act like your work is perfect, you are wrong! No one is perfect, and Karma will turn around bite you in the butt. Maybe it will be a chance of a lifetime that you will miss. All my fortunate circumstances have come from being humble and paying it forward.
Enjoy this song, it’s one that I listen to a lot when I work . . .
It is unbelievably accurate!
Lots of love, Emily
