This week has been magical.  My brother ‘ MARVELOUS MERV’ HAS DEFIED THE ODDS, at least so far, and is home as an outpatient.That’s it.

A few months ago I told you all that I didn’t win my first contest with The New Quarterly. Well two days ago I got a letter from them telling me that their editors have been following me, as they put it, for at least one year or more. Now they want my work.  You see my friends, that is what I do…. never ever give up.

I promised my friend Bev at the HUB that I would mention World Poetry Day (Discover the True Power of Words).   It’s on March 27/14 from 7 -8:30 p.m. at  The Hub, 4936 Ross St. That’s eight days before our concert at the same location.

Okay, it is time, if only for a moment, to close our eyes and our thoughts …. and rest. Until we drop a tear together gazing past the sun and knowing…we are just fine, I leave you today with a little more…
