September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury Reviews Tess Gerritsen Playing With Fire

Playing with FirePlaying with Fire by Tess Gerritsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have always appreciated Dr Gerritsen’s crime stories and particularly the humanity of the friendship between the polar opposites,Rizzoli and Isles... But the historical fiction that is this book, ‘Playing with Fire’ brings to bear this author’s full humanity and craft. Not one twist or turn was anticipated, the medicine was sweetly blended with it’s strengths and foibles. It’s a story that brings new fans and grows the old beyond our borders. It reminds us that humanity is not a physical designation but an inspiration, a reason to be. Victor Hugo would be proud to call Tess Gerritsen a colleague. SDW

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury Reviews Interior Design and other Emotions by Kate Forest

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury  Reviews  Interior Design and other Emotions by Kate Forest

So one thing about writing is that you want to surround yourself with written words. It keeps your head in the game. There are only a certain number of hours in a day so I listen to audiobooks while exercising -- sometimes it is the only thing that makes me exercise!  I'm a member of the Romance Audiobook group on Good Reads and from time to time there are book giveaways that I am interested in. I just learned that I can also share my goodreads reviews on my own blog. Below is my review of Interior Design and Other Emotions —a story about a Stock Analyst and an Autistic Woman who works in his daily visited coffee shop.  It's a good read.

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury Supports Marin City's Performing Stars & performingartstars/national-memorial-for-peace-and-justice-and-the-legacy-museum

This project is directly related to themes in Chasing Mercury. I can't begin to express the admiration I have for the founder/executive director of the Performing Stars Youth Program -- Felecia Gaston. She is truly a woman who knows "What plot of ground she has been given to till," As Ralph Waldo Emerson would say. And thanks to my dear friend Ola Bonds for flagging Performing Stars and it's director. PS is onto a new venture after taking children on driving tours across the USA to historically significant sights of contribution to the world of African American figure the program's right place is being honored. Performing Stars' youth ( http://performingstars.org) from Marin City are invited to attend the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, and Legacy Museum From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration in Montgomery, Alabama.

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury with Synergy Dance Project at Laguna Honda Hospital

  • Mon, Apr 9, 201811:00 AM  Tue, Apr 10, 201812:00 PM

  • For  about 6 years I have been dancing with the incomparable Sylvie Minot the director of the Syzygy Dance Project. The 5Rhythms is a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in everybody regardless of shape, size, age or experience. While the practice itself is simple, it has the power to catalyze deep healing and creative expression. As 5Rhythms Founder Gabrielle Roth states, "if you put your psyche in motion, it will heal itself." 

     

  • Syzygy has brought dance and dance therapy to hundreds who believe, or the world believes, can't or shouldn't dance.  This is just an FYI: Monday April 9 we will be Dancing with people who reside at Laguna Honda Hospital from 11 AM to 12PM. If you want to invest in a program that makes a difference for people at the deepest level, have a look at the work of the Syzygy Dance Project.  See http://www.syzygydanceproject.org

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury, Inspiration of Sculpture, Rodin, Victor Hugo and his Muse

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury, Inspiration of Sculpture, Rodin, Victor Hugo and his Muse

I can't actually remember when I fell in love with sculpture. I was very young. It was either seeing "The Thinker" by Rodin on Dobbie Gilles ( a 1960s sit com.)  Any way, I've often visited one of the "Thinkers" at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. I was delighted when my son chose Sculpture as his major in college. Is sculpture practical? No... but it is it important. Infact there is an entire scene in front of Victor Hugo and his Muse in the Weighing Lead the second book in the Chasing Mercury Toxic Trilogy.
