Hi, my name is Ann. I am a writer, musician, and a creative heart. My stage name is Simmeringlight. I used this nickname in all my public media activity. Simmeringlight represents to me a new beginning, like the rising of new day, a dawn of something special. If you have ever experienced a sunrise, you will notice a feeling of waking up to something fresh, bright, full of potential. Every times I look at a sunrise, I am renewed with the feeling of calmness, like I can be ready for anything.
I hope someday I'll get the opportunity to share my stories and music with you. I hope that it will be as enjoyable for you to read or hear as it is for me to create. Being the creative heart that I am, I have many other interests as well, and boy is it a lot of work. Don't be surprise, when at near death, I finally finish what I set up to do. Suddenly then, you'll see how terribly busy I have been.
What will you find on my death bed you asked? Me, because I really preferred not to wait until I am dead to share all my passions with you. So here's wishing on a star that on my death bed you'll see only me and not unfinished business or finish business that I didn't get to enjoy sharing with you.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

There are something you can't control, but there are many things you can. You can control your attitudes. You can control your beliefs. You can control your willingness to not let the little things stop or bother you. There's a lot you can control, so don't let what you cannot control, control what you can. ~Ann :-)
