Is it me, or has it been a rough year? I woke up this morning recovering from yet another traumatic experience and, before getting out of bed took a casual, mental inventory of my life in 2012...
JANUARY: Car totaled due to water damage, the result of negligence on the part of my insurance company.
FEBRUARY - APRIL: Eliminated shithead friend from my life. Waged battle against my insurance company.
APRIL: Lost the battle.
MAY - JULY: Waged battle against the State Insurance Commission.
JULY: Lost the battle. Furnace crapped out. Stress of a personal nature.
JULY - OCTOBER: Eliminated second shithead friend from my life. Poured body and soul into a stressful, high-risk project.
OCTOBER: Project failed. House insurance canceled due to a crumbling chimney. Repaired chimney with money owed to furnace guy. Ran out of money.
NOVEMBER: A busy month. Book rejected by two agents. Book rejected by publisher. Water heater burst and flooded basement. No money to replace water heater. Got stopped on highway and learned my registration and plates had been canceled - in August and October, respectively. More stress of a personal nature. Eliminated yet another shithead friend from my life. Got stopped a second time. Speeding ticket. And a partridge in a pear tree.
DECEMBER: Another ongoing battle and it doesn't look good. More stress of a personal nature. Still water in the basement, still no money, book still not sold. Out of friends. And it's only the 5th. Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la...
Tiela Aldon Garnett...
...was born some time ago in Los Angeles, California...
Her father was a famous Motion Picture and Television director and her mother was an actress. There was a 31-year difference in their ages (her father was older) and she was their only child. If you want to know more about her early life and family, you'll have to read the book, but it's not out yet.
She has two children, Taylor and Chloe. Her children think she's "special." Taylor was born in Paris, France and Chloe was born in Brooklyn, New York. They're grown up now. Mostly. Both of her children are artists.
If you want to see what the author's family looks like, there are pictures under the "Photo Album" tab!
Tiela discovered her passion somewhat late in life, and that's okay. She's appreciating every minute of the journey, and isn't that the goal? She is happily committed to the process of her evolution, and has come to accept her humanness. She will joyously assist you in your process, too, because she's an International Life Coach!
She has stories, recipes, photographs, and occasionally wisdom to share.
Please enjoy her blogs about Paris, her Paris journal, and her stories, all under the "My Writing" tab, as well as her Paris Recipes!
