June is Bustin' Out All Over!
Friday, June 03, 2011  7:19:00 AM

by Laurel D Rund

Essence of Laurel is expanding her wings during the month of June ... and taking off to promote my book, Emerging Voices. It's my passion and my purpose. Laurel

“Look around! Look around! Look around!  June is bustin’ out all over.

All over the meadow and the hill!

Buds’re bustin’ outa bushes
And the rompin’ river pushes
Ev’ry little wheel that wheels beside the mill!
June is bustin’ out all over!

That’s the way June is shaping up for me!

First, Essence of Laurel will be participating as a vendor on Saturday, June 11th and Sunday, June 12th, 2011 at the 10th Annual St. Armands Circle Craft Festival in Sarasota, Fl.

Then, on June 22-25th, I will be attending ADEC’s 33rd Annual Conference in Miami where Emerging Voices will be featured in the conference bookstore and I will be participating in a Meet the Authors reception.    Folks, marketing doesn’t come intuitively to me, however;  several hospice counselors suggested that I approach APEC about my book.  Once I did, I understood instinctively that Emerging Voices was meant to become one of the of healing resources that ADEC offers its broad audience.

As my brother Leonard said about the Emerging Voices:

This is not a self-help guide or a how to overcome grief manual. There is no one road map that can tell someone how their unique sense of loss can be handled.  But it does show how one person  set out on a journey to rediscover herself after a lifetime of ‘we’ and provides space for  the reader to start mapping out their own journey if they so choose.”   Leonard Fleisig

AND, like icing on the cake,  Open to Hope( is an online website where people can share inspirational stories of loss and love) has put on its home page, as a featured book,  Emerging Voices! Think about what a magical name for a healing and inspirational site “Open to Hope” is.   My belief is that, as bleak as life can seem at times,  the human spirit has a place reserved within which is always Open to Hope!

*Just had my first article published on Open to Hope where I am now a contributing writer – hooooraaay!

Oh – last but certainly not least – the CD “Emerging Voices” is going to be released in June.  This CD is a collaboration between my partner Philip Leber and myself;  lyrics based on the poems within the book.  Philip composed and sings these songs from a healing place deep within his soul.

Each day is an adventure and I am on a path of discovery, renewal and am always Open to Hope!
