Well, I had an enjoyable New Year's Eve here at my computer, eating leftover Thai food, followed up with some wonderful chocolate covered marzipan, sipping ZD Reserve Chardonnay. It doesn't get much better than that! Then, as I was looking at blogs, I discovered I had won a prize! Just in the last few days, I discovered the blog of another poet, Carolyn R. Parsons, better known as "Breeze" - far more talented than I am - who has just published "Wind Rhymes: Poetry from the Breeze" ( available at Amazon ). The criteria for the contest were that anyone who commented on a post or became a follower would be entered in a drawing for a copy of the book in a drawing to take place on New Year's eve. The names were drawn by Breeze's two daughters. Six-year-old, Sophia, pulled the name of Shadow at 1 Door Away from Heaven and 4-year-old, Martina, drew my name! I can't wait for my book to arrive. Check out Breeze's blog at: Breeze Daze.
One of my goals, if I ever scrape up enough extra funds, is to publish a chapbook of some of my own poetry. I hope I can do that this year!
I hope this indicates the beginning of a very lucky year and decade for me. At least, it has started off in the very nicest way. Goodness, I just thought, when the new year rings for the next decade, I will be seventy-five years old!
