When I started this blog I wondered “What will I say?” “How do I express myself in the way that will be profitable not only to me but to my readers?” Writing is a big responsibility. Yet, like I’ve said before its also a great privilege. I try to remember that every single day. It’s the joy of simple things that makes the world go round.
Tonight when I was driving home I noticed a simple thing. The moon is beautiful tonight. Full, yellow, and huge it sits in the sky right above the horizon. How many full moons have I seen in my lifetime? Probably over a hundred. How often I stop and actually look? I don’t know. So often we go through life without taking notice of the wonderful things around us. As I watched the moon, I started to make up stories about the craters I saw, the colors that seemed to change with the earth’s movement, and the starts almost dancing around the big queen. It made me smile, and I wanted to share that with you.
My countdown till road trip is down to 12 days! I’m so extremely excited! I still have so much planning to do. Yes, I am one of those people who need to have a plan to execute before they are responsible for any kind of an undertaking. Call me strange, but I like to know where I’m going in order to arrive there safely. However, it would be extremely fun to just get in a car and drive. Maybe, one of these days I will be able to check that off my list as well.
Also, my dear readers, I have been talking to Borders trying to set up a book signing in the next few months. Keep checking back for updates! I can tell you that there will be giveaways and yummy goodies at this particular event. I’ve also ordered a set of postcards for promotional purposes and I can’t wait for them to get here! As you can see I’ve been doing my best to try and promote my book. And I ask you to do the same! Tell everyone you know.
