A Good Year, A Bad Year

2011 is nearly over. Must be over by the time I post this – for those who live in certain parts of the world.

I can make a list a hundred kilometers long of 2011’s good and bad. But I won’t. I have many things to thank for, and a lot of things I wish had never been.

I would like to thank this year for being the time my two books of poetry got published, a bridge to hopefully let others see my world a little.

Thank you to all the readers of this blog and my books’ blogs. I hope 2012 will be better.
