Yes, I'm happy.
In spite of the state of the world, I find moments of joy. Most of those moments of joy are found in poetry. Reading it, writing it.
I must commit myself to writing more regularly in this blog. It's so important. Check in every few days, even though I don't have many readers. I don't care -- I still enjoy writing it.
"Gran Fletcher's Apple Pie" received some lovely comments, and I even had a poem published again for the Christmas holidays.
Perhaps I shouldn't worry so much that my poems aren't epic or world-changing. I like to write about simple, every-day life things. Life makes me happy and writing about it makes me happy, and maybe, just maybe, one or two of my poems can make someone else happy.
Blessings for the New Year to one and all!
