All Souls' Day




I didn't intend to get all biblical on my blog but I came across this quote on Pinterest. Whether you're a believer or not, I think its message is really powerful. I was raised Roman Catholic (schooling and all). I appreciate the traditions of the church (especially the beauty of the mass and the Saints) but I consider myself far more spiritual than religious. I certainly don't agree with many of the church's beliefs and practices. I'd also be lying if I said I attended mass regularly (or much at all any more). But on All Souls' Day, I like to reflect on the people in my life who are no longer here in the physical world and imagine what the next level of dimension has in store...

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
