Every morning I wake up in gratitude that I get a new day to live, love, and learn. I am one who enjoys dabbling in many different things, experimenting with new arts, hobbies, and life stuff. Lately, I have enjoyed writing, reading, traveling and playing my bagpipes. Yes, the last one is not exactly something everyone does, but it is a lot of fun learning such a persnickety instrument.

 

Although I still dabble with my art, piano, traveling, and making natural products, I decided to spend my focused time in three areas:

1. Author Adventures (Writing and Publishing)

2. Bagpipe Beat (performing/competing solo and with the City of Dunedin Pipe Band),

3. Connecting to creation (exploring the world around me)

 

This site brings all three together. I’ll still include fun things I find, but I am learning so much through my music, writing, and nature time that I must share what’s there.

 

Who knows? Perhaps someday, you’ll join me on a retreat or decide that you, too, want to play bagpipes. (It is so much fun – and I actually found it easier than golf, but that’s another story…), or maybe you want to write a book. Did you know that you can do all of these and more? How do I know? Because I’m just a regular retired old person, and if I can do this, so can you. I hope you join me on this miraculous journey called life on this magnificent planet we all share.

 

 

WHY GUSSTO?

 

Yes, I know the correct spelling of the word "gusto." The play on the word using our last name began many years ago when there was a picture  of our little ball player in the paper with the caption "Hitting with Gussto." We loved the play on words and quickly adopted the spelling to include our last name. 

 

So, from our home to yours, welcome to "Living with Gussto!" ❤️

Alone, but with Unbated Zeal

I am thrilled to present "Speculative Fiction"/Mythology/Fantasy author David Berger's message on how connecting to creation inspires renewed energy to "forge ahead" in pursuits of creativity, challenges, and opportunity. When I read the descriptions of his settings in his work, I knew he had to be connected to creation. I was right there with him and his characters. Here's a journey into this amazing author's world. Yes, it begins right here on Earth, right near home. One does not have to go far to make those essential earth connections. Enjoy! Alone, but with Unabated Zeal by David Berger In the ancient world, the elemental powers of nature held sway over people who, in turn, revered the

Notice, Note it, Narrate

I strive to establish peace by writing about connecting to creation and each other. Sometimes this seems an impossible feat, especially in current climates; however, I have hope. This can be done. Even though there are so many varied interests, politics, religions, and people, we sometimes forget that all of us share this planet and its amazing support of our lives. Most of us know all this; some take it for granted, yet I find that when I’m reminded of miracles showing themselves in hummingbirds or other tiny creatures, I recognize that we can bring people together by celebrating the common ground without trying to convert another to our way of thinking. All of my stories are about the univ

Connecting to Creation through Artistic Expression, Part II: the Artist Date

Connecting to Creation Through Artistic Expression Part 2: The Artist Date Introduction from Nancy Nason Guss On our writing retreat, Ira Pincus shared a book with great strategies that increase creativity and a feeling of connectedness. One does not have to be a writer to enjoy these, for anyone can benefit from these seemingly simple activities. They are so simple that many put them off for another time, and before they know it, the opportunity has passed. This can be especially true when under stress or having a lot to do. It seems we often let life and its busyness launch is into constant cyclical activities without a way to stop, gain perspective, and mental clarity. In part 2, we are r
