100 Words: Small Servings of Whimsy and Wisdom

The happy rumors are true.

My first book, “100 Words: Small Servings of Whimsy and Wisdom to Calm the Mind and Nourish the Heart” is out in soft cover. I’m happy with how it turned out and would love to introduce the two of you!

“100 Words” is a collection of poetry paired with beautiful photography, each poem one hundred words long. Subjects range from relationships, creativity, grief, nature, change and love.

You can get copies from me personally — in person of course if you live in the Asheville area. I can also mail copies anywhere — write me an email at incareofrelationships@gmail.com and provide your address. You can pay by PayPal. The books are $20 each or $18 each for two or more copies. Shipping is $3 by media mail. (Check with me for shipping costs for large orders.)

You can order copies on Amazon. Here’s the link. $21.77 plus tax and postage (unless you have Prime).

What people are saying:

“I received the book a few days ago and I am enjoying the 100 word morsels deeply. They are not only delightful but go straight to the heart. I sometimes find myself laughing and moved to tears all within one 100-word piece. This is absolutely a book to be read and savored.” — Amy Mandel

“I have read and loved everyone of these hundred word poems. Terri has a way of capturing the most profound and deep parts of ourselves and life in a way that makes me smile and gain a lighter perspective. I have opened every email and blog she has sent me for the past 20 years because I know it will touch my heart and give me a feeling of connection, hope and joy.” –Delia

Wherever you decide to purchase the book, please consider adding your positive review to those already on Amazon. Reviews help.

I’ll be scheduling author events this coming month and will let you know about those.

Thank you for your support! Let me know how you enjoy 100 Words!

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
 
Political name-calling is similar—we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
 
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
 
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
 
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
 
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
 
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
 
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
 
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
 
Much love,
Terri
