This is a photo of my brother, Jerry, when he was a college student. Jerry seldom smiled, laughed, or seemed comfortable with people. BUT....he "came alive" on the dance floor. Jerry loved to dance and no one was a better dance partner than Jerry.

My brother died when he was 58 years old. I knew Jerry better than anyone. I knew and understood the devastating secret he carried--- all his life.

Please read Simply, Sally where today....I'm honoring my brother. Yesterday, emptying another long-ago box, I found this...my favorite photo of Jerry ...and a Happy Birthday card from Dottie that my brother had asked me to save...thirty five years earlier. It was an emotional experience. I felt like Jerry was "next to me" when I found these sensitive remembrances.

Jerry's presence stayed with me through the night and I felt compelled to "share him" with you. I'm sure he and Dottie are together again and are...most-likely...dancing!

IN THIS PHOTO, I'M A PHOTOGRAPHER'S MODEL, POSING ON THE PORCH OF AN ABANDONED HOTEL ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE FOX THEATRE IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA. IT WAS THE MID-EIGHTIES AND...LIFE WAS OKAY BUT....I NEVER FELT LIKE ATLANTA WAS MY PERMANENT HOME. SOMETIMES...WE CAN'T PUT INTO WORDS WHY WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE JUST "PASSING THROUGH". MOST OF US HAVE A REALLY- GOOD SENSE OF WHAT "HOME" FEELS LIKE.

SADLY... A FEW OF US CAN NEVER "GO HOME" EVEN WHEN WE KNOW WHERE TO FIND IT. I'VE HAD NO CHOICE BUT ACCEPT WHERE I LIVE NOW; TO USE WHAT I HAVE LEFT OF MY LONG-AGO TREASURES TO SURROUND MYSELF WITH YESTERDAY'S MEMORIES AND ONCE-UPON-A-TIME LOVE.

ONLY BECAUSE OF MY ONGOING STRENGTH TRAINING..... WITH GOD AS MY COACH... AM I ABLE TO FACE EACH NEW DAY WITH HOPE.... TO CONTINUE TO BELIEVE IN LIFE'S ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.

WHO REMEMBERS THE "GAUCHO" LOOK? UNLIKE MOST OF THE OUTFITS I MODELED---THIS FASHIONABLE OUTFIT "CAUGHT MY FANCY" AND, I BOUGHT IT. IT WAS A STYISH BUT TRADITIONAL, STRIKING-RED WOOL SUIT, ACCENTED WITH BLACK ACCESSORIES.

I ALSO REMEMBER FALLING-IN-LOVE WITH THE SELDOM-SEEN WEEPING WILLOWS THAT PROVIDED "DRAMA" TO THIS PHOTO"S BACKGROUND. PLAYING DRESS-UP ALWAYS SEEMED SUCH-FUN BUT-- THESE DAYS---NOT SO MUCH.

VISIT ME ON SIMPLY, SALLY, WHERE I SHARE MORE---OR LESS.

IT'S REALLY MORE-FUN WHEN YOU'RE WITH ME.

SALLY

These words have become my guide. Just maybe...they can inspire you, too.

Let's focus on living our lives in such a way--the melody of our life story will end-- on a HIGH NOTE.

Please Stay Close,

Sally

IN MY YOUNGER LIFE, I WAS TOO TRUSTING, TOO LOVING, AND GAVE TOO-MUCH-OF-MYSELF TO THE WRONG PEOPLE. NAIVELY, I TREATED OTHERS AS I WISHED TO BE TREATED WITHOUT REALIZING THAT TOO-MANY-PEOPLE ARE TAKERS---NOT GIVERS.

JUST MAYBE, IT TOOK A LOT OF HURT, DISAPPOINTMENT, AND LOSS...TO MAKE ME STRONGER. JUST MAYBE...SOME OF US NEED TO WALK THROUGH FIRE TO BETTER-UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THE WORD "HOT."


BE CAREFUL WHO YOU TRUST WITH YOUR LIFE.

IT DIDN"T HAPPEN OVER NIGHT....BUT...OVER TIME. TODAY, I KNOW WHO AND WHAT I AM.

I ALSO KNOW WHEN A COMPLICATED DAY INTERFERES WITH MY WRITING BUT...MY LOVE OF WRITING KEEPS ME MOTIVATED! TODAY IS A NEW DAY AND I'LL BE SHARING ANOTHER OF LIFE'S "COINCIDENCES" .

YES, I'M "SIMPLY, SALLY" BUT....I'VE NEVER SAID MY LIFE WAS SIMPLE.

STAY CLOSE,
SALLY

MY REALITY.

  In my life, there are no guarantees. Life keeps changing and before long.... it's time to pack-up my memories----and start a new life--all-over-again. 

The little-girl-in-me keeps hoping our endless rides on life's Merry-Go-Round are over but, apparently, my Mother "gifted" me with a lifetime ticket.

Evil never dies.

SOMEDAY....

Soon, I will finish my next two books:

1. ALL THE WALL---The first-ever journey of The Great Wall of China. This book will "take you along" on my exclusive Great Wall Adventure--from start to finish---- with more than 1000 photos and a "running narrative."

2. MORE OR LESS. a sequel to my first book, THE BEAUTY QUEEN, Let No Deed Go Unpublished. This book includes more shocking and true stories I was forced to edit from my first book....due to space, time, and money constraints.  

Stay close.

WHAT YOU'LL FIND IN MY BOOK:

My book is factual, emotional, shocking, and not for the faint-of-heart,  You will quickly learn I don’t believe in coincidences.

My story is true; I’ve lived it all and NO—it isn’t a bragging book. The Beauty Queen is a complicated adventure through the shame of incest, sexual abuse, dominance and control; of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and an on-going, living death. But, never fear. There are many funny stories in the book--- a few naughty revelations----and more than enough "shock" to keep your attention.

Consider my book a "how-to" guide on surviving a life targeted by Hate, Jealousy, Bullying, Evil, and Intimidation.  My story is also about the “little girl in me.” She’s my life-long friend—the one who never grew up, gave up, or, gave in.

Some people will purchase my book based on the Clinton Chapters. For the first time, I  expose the intimate details of my three month encounter with Bill Clinton AND I reveal exclusive revelations about Hillary---as told to me by Bill.

Trust me, Hillary likes to play "dirty" so, I'm digging in the dirt to share each life-threatening moment she directed my way during the nineties.  I also reveal the dirty details of my “run-in” with both Clintons and Madeline Albright---—in China.


THE BEAUTY QUEEN has first-ever facts about people, places, and events. You will also experience my many photos, letters, and documents.

I invite you to read my story. You’ll learn a multitude of truths about others but most of all about me-Sally Miller.
