Has this year been a good one? This year has been one of catching up to my artistic side, my summer camp interests and my cooking side. It’s been happy and sad and exciting and overwhelming. How did it feel to you?
Did you make new friends? I’m so glad I have friends like you who read my creative works. I have entered several pieces into Chicken Soup For The Soul. My stories might be selected around the month of February. Happy thoughts appreciated. If they are, I get to have ten free books and you might just get one. Here’s hoping!
Are you giving time to your talents? Thanks to friends in Owen Sound for encouraging me to teach workshops and write poems and play piano. Thanks Gavan for assisting me in achieving my goals this year. I started playing weekly at a nursing home in town.
Remembering the puppeteer for Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. May we continue to take in the joys of new creative works while we continue to enjoy the old ones too. An inspiring highlight of the year was the movie Ad Astra and the soul searching and acting involved in it. I loved Dumbo too and the heart-touching story and I look forward to Mr. Rogers as a depiction of the kindness possible. Maybe the movies are getting better again?
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Hope you achieve some of your own goals and reflect on your personal growth. It’s a wonderful time of the year! I enjoy the quiet time this season too.
