At least January is winding down. Now to get through that mean little February.

I always fancied myself as a writer until I found out how much hard work it takes. Not only does a writer have to worry about the logistics of writing but also that pesky connecting which has never been my strong suit. If a story doesn’t engage a reader it’s probably not going to be read. It may even be mocked.

There is that saying going around, “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” I added an addendum. To each his own unless his own interferes with my own.
by Elder O. Vincent Haleck
All that is required of us is to give our very best. Of course, not all of our bests are equal. Some have 5 talents others only have 2. It isn’t the size of the talent that matters its our willingness to give. Continue reading
