Turning 81, and heck, let’s get our nails done!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Yes, 81… I wish I could say 18 but then I wouldn’t be born, or writing this post right now… So, sorry mom, I guess you’ll have to turn 81! She might be horrified to know I broadcasted this on Anchor, so shhhhhhh will you??

I’m looking forward to our day together. Some people can’t say they still have their parents, and my heart goes out to them. I am grateful every day to have both of my parent’s and will be taking my mom to lunch and to get her nails done!

My dad will be next with Father’s day around the corner. I will cherish everyday I have with them, and be grateful for every day I have to count my blessings!

It’s just been a shitty day

I think this pic says it all… keep pushing forward. It’s also one of the most adorable pics I think I’ve ever seen. So, it fits perfectly for my Anchor episode: How much crappier can things get, but in the end, you simply can’t regret that you kept going, despite the urge to just give up. Many blessings folks, and keep on keeping on! Sandi

The Upside-down Effect

Section 6, day 6 of 36: Light & Dark; a Pause in Writing, by Sandi Martinez

Upside down… day 6 of 36. Listen on Anchor if you feel inclined. Car accidents, nightmares, assumptions of what you should be doing vs what’s in your heart, and your path.

My advice? Listen to you.

Many blessings, Sandi

Human Condition

Human Condition

Day 4 of 36 of my novella book reading: Light and Dark: a Pause in Writing, on Anchor.

Human Condition… We all live, breathe, feel, and deny it. And so begins the difficult telling of my first encounter with satan in my dreams. Stay tuned folks, and thanks in advance for the listen!

Mind’s Chaos

Section 2 – Mind’s Chaos

Day 2 of 36 – my attempt at a book reading via Anchor podcast. Listen here!

Writing an autobiographical novella, isn’t easy – but a lot easier than writing a book. It was difficult, yet cathartic. This is section 2 of 36, day two of 36 days of reading each section on Anchor.

For those of you who are thinking about writing a book, regardless of the genre, know this: it won’t write itself. Keep on keeping on!

Many blessings, and thanks in advance for stopping by!

Podcast book reading: my autobiographical novella

Hi Folks!

I’ve been putting this off for a bit… ok, since I published my novella in 2017. The thought of doing an in-person book reading(s)/signing(s) terrified me. I self-published this book. I was the writer, editor, proof-reader, and I designed the jacket. This is my third book. My most important one. I decided to do a book read for the first time, on Anchor.

I’m loving recording my podcasts, and thought, well, why not? If not here, now, then when?

The next 36 days: book reading on O’vehlu podcast!

Join me on my journey! I will be posting (also here on WP) for the next 36 days, reading 36 sections in my novella; in case you find an episode title (section) of the book that might catch your attention.

Thanks in advance for stopping by folks!

Many blessing folks! Sandi

A very special refill

I drove in the rain today – here, in northern New Mexico, we need rain. That doesn’t mean it’s not needed anywhere else!

It lined up nicely with my mission today, which was to see Father Valentine at Santo Tomas church in Abiquiu, New Mexico. I was due to for blessed refill… read here for more details!
