Origins and Love Movement for Mel's New Work - Vanessa by the Sea...

Every work has its origins, that space in the unconscious where something wants to be born, some sharing of an inner experience or a story or an insight that won't go away.  Each writer has an entry point with their work, whether it is a personal experience, a chance encounter or a soul opening lightning strike of destiny.  
While many things come together effortlessly, others need an applied discipline, lots of love and concern and inevitability.  Vanessa Bland has been in my life as a healing agent since I asked a dear friend for help and she recommended this therapist.  Our work every thursday at 2pm to release the past, transform patterns and to enter the essential healing relationship of love and insight has been powerful not just for me, but for everyone I have met, given words of encouragement to and been in interconnected action with.  Being allowed the privilege of turning my experience with Vanessa into a book, Tuesdays at Morrie, style is awesome.

Each of us has our teachers, those souls we are indeed changed in their presence. As the year unfolds, I will continue sharing Vanessa by the Sea and all the gifts of love it represents.  You can check out the goings on of this editorial process at and join in the exploration.  On the site, you will be able to access work in process audio recordings, and follow along on the birth of a book into a movie.
Vanessa by the Sea dives into the working relationship between me and my therapist joined together in weekly therapy sessions to heal and grow and uncover the truth of love using the road by the ocean as a metaphor for the gateway to the unconscious inspiring life’s biggest lesson in unconditional love and friendship.  It is the continuing conversation started in my first book, THE BARE MELCESSITIES: walking out. waking up. getting bare, a written self portrait about starting over after divorce.

Each experience in session is a demonstration of openness, compassion and remembering, showcasing the deeper river of humanity’s destiny, returning to love. Told with courage and determination accessing the most intelligent teacher in the universe ever broadcasting the highest good for each of us, Vanessa by the Sea is the core truth of allowing nature’s brilliance to unfold with Love reflecting the power that is in us but not of us.

It has been quite something to be a part of a process of bringing something wonderful into the world.  I look forward to sharing what's ahead and thank you in advance for your support, it is most appreciated.
Lots of Love, Mel
