2018 …It was an interesting year…I know for many it was a rough one and I hope that for those, there will be hope and a bright light shining for them in the coming year….
I have a few goals I’d like to accomplish in 2019 and will work hard to make sure some or perhaps all of them are met…In 2018, we started a publishing company, published a few books, I did some public speaking and presented A Normal Kind of Love…twice! In between those successes, there were a few road blocks and health issues….but as always, I have learned to deal….
It’s also now been four years of transition for me as well. I continue to try rebuilding my self confidence as well as learning/moving on from past experiences… It hasn’t been easy but I know I’ve been diligently working on it as well as healing…
I raise my glass to all of you: here’s to a brighter light, hope, healing, meeting goals and learning to love yourself and others… And if you fall down, you can always pick yourself back up again…
Happy New Year!
Published by Ariana R. Cherry
“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.”
Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls….
Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International.
She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein.
Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“
During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
