There is much to do in the coming weeks and months. Thanksgiving is next week, and Christmas will be soon after. It's my favorite time of year, weather notwithstanding. There is also much already done this year, and that makes for a very satisfying feeling.
In the beginning of 2012, my short play "Don't Let Go" was read at Writers & Books in Rochester, NY. It was gratifying to see and hear my work in 3-dimentional living color. Even more so though, was seeing, and hearing, the reactions of the audience. They were generous and positive, thankfully.
The spring brought with it much reflection and growth, and with that came insights with which to write. The summer arrived with news of an upcoming grandchild, the first actually, and more reason to be grateful this year.
I have been writing more than ever and have published an eBook and several more articles. I have also been reading and studying more and more about the human condition, and how to wring every savory drop of joy possible out of this life.
Those who know me know that I'm more than happy to share any insights gleaned with them. Doing that is one of the things I truly enjoy. Having people to share knowledge with is one of the things I'm thankful for this year.
I have always enjoyed work, doing things, being productive. I'm afraid working independently has created a borderline workaholic though. As I sit researching or writing hours go by without my noticing, the only clue being my grumbling stomach to what the clock-face says. That, and the text on the screen that my slow, non-secretarial fingers have generated.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
