Hodge Podge Day - The Monkey Spirit Tree
1. I'm posting at the writer's dojo today. Feel free to stop by and say Hi...or anything else you'd like to say.
2. I've joined Shallee McAurthur's Healthy Writer's Club, and I'm proud to say I've worked out at the gym five days since Saturday and I'm feeling really wonderful. I'm also eating well, which is no easy task. While at the gym, I'm able to plug into my iPhone and listen to the tunes in which I relate to certain scenes in my stories. It's great to move and imagine the scenes as I'd like them to play out.
3. My son earned his yellow belt in karate this past week (see picture above). I'm not only a writing ninja, but I love martial arts, as well. I'm happy one of my children shares that passion.
4. Where is my unusual post? Are you missing it? Well....have you heard of the Monkey Spirit Tree? Apparently, there are many spirit trees that have been worshipped throughout history. The Monkey Spirit Tree is located in Singapore (click on the link for cool pictures) and many people believe by visiting and praying to the "monkey god", their prayers will be answered. Scientists have explained the unusual growths that appear to be that of monkeys, but still the worshippers come. Spirit trees would make for interesting fantasy tales. Any thoughts on spirit trees?
Have a wonderful weekend!
