I have not blogged for three weeks and have been bumping up old posts to keep this blog going. Although I stopped blogging for a while, I joined Wordprsess.com’s Blogging 101. This post is my attempt at fulfilling one of the assignments:
Today’s assignment: build your storyteller’s toolbox by publishing a post in another format or a style you’ve never used before.
Most of my posts in this blog have been full of words. So, for a change, I will now use more images and less words to get my message across.
The writer in me had been shouting lately, wanting to do more writing aside from the early morning journaling that I do everyday, the once a week blog post I write, and the daily attempts at writing a few pages for a book I intended to self-publish.

I have been working on my Suites these past days. I hope you’ll find the time to visit my Suites on Spirituality, Reiki, Conservation, the Philippines, and Health and Longevity.
One problem solved.
And just in case you want to try creating your own Suites, here’s the place to start.
I have no doubt that you can
With my Suites revitalized, I wondered if I could do all that writing and keep my therapy job. Hmmm… I seriously considered taking a long break from blogging. To explore that possibility, I had to ask myself, “Why do I blog?”

The feature writer in me is now happy (sigh).
So, when the writer in you begins to scream,
