"Live Your Dash just brings life into a meaningful way. Live Your Dash is important because it's how we spend our lives. We get caught up in our own little world, and when we realize how insignificant we really are, the only important thing is the positive role we've played in the lives of others."
"I have read some of Linda Ellis's poems and material that are in "Live Your Dash". Linda has been given the music of the muse and her work will touch your heart, challenge your mind, and comfort your soul. She weaves out pages of her craft and her words and the imagery it conjures will set every emotion in your fiber demanding a command performance.
