"Suddenly, I had to open my Acts of Surrender memoir. Once I started, I couldn't stop – reading or sobbing. Fifty pages later, I realized that I had needed my own words and the example of my own life to remind me of who I am and what I'm about...to get me past my resistance...to get me to recommit to my writer self. Not for the first time in my life and probably not for the last, all that matters is that I'm writing." More at http://markdavidmuse.blogspot.com/2015/03/a-novel-experience.html

"I shut my eyes and tried to visualize what life might be like as a screenwriter. The first image was of a stunning, modernist house  overlooking the ocean. The next took me into its beach-view writing studio. The next wasn't as idyllic: I lived in this oasis alone. No wife. No daughter. My eyes shot open, shook my head to clear the nightmare and told no one what I'd seen." • Did my nightmare come true?

"I was approaching the end of a circuitous 9,000-mile, 3-month road odyssey when the headline announcing Princess Diana's death screamed out at me from a KOA newspaper box in Mount Shasta City. Her death still imprinted on my psyche, Diana would appear to me in a vision a few weeks later, when my full-time road trip dropped me in Sedona."

"As I watched Maui fade into the Pacific, I sobbed again, harder, if possible, than I had done at Kukuipuka. Two years would pass before I could remove 'aloha' from my voicemail greeting or could listen to Lei'ohu Ryder sing 'Maui Loa' without feeling a tug back toward the land whose tough love had bruised, battered and, ultimately, strengthened me." • More on my life in the land of aloha and tears in my Acts of Surrender memoir at  http://www.markdavidgerson.com/books/actsofsurrender
