The sun sets on another day…
It is the end to another year. Sunset today was spectacular high above, but the clouds sat upon us all as the rain and snow prepared to return. Still, I smiled and considered this year.
In January there were many fun prompts that were inspired by people I met. I also reviewed a considerable number of books in January with a passion to read. I set a 2022 goal for 300 books and read as of today 324. A good read for a little fun in January was Positions.
In February I was pounding books out like crazy. I got a kick out of a lot but also had a few come in that were less than perfect. I wondered about the divide in people, and was inspired by even more. I was fond of a post I wrote in February called Ashes, as it meant a lot to me, and a little more to many. I was also devastated by a terrible loss. It was there I wrote Depth of a Heart.
AS I reread March I realized I must have been attacked by a Thesaurus. I fought it for control but the number of large posts in March was high. Made me laugh for a few. I reread Positional Awareness and even though I repeat it from time to time, it is quite meaningful.
April showers bring May flowers, but for me it was more books by the week being posted and reviewed. As I looked at April I laughed at a song I was singing on the 18th. Then sound a few posts I liked a lot. Lot’s of books and short reviews posted and a cute little item called If it is going to be. I laughed and smiled a lot at this months items.
Mayday mayday, the month slid by. This month had a lot of fun reads but I liked Limits and Abilities and considered my writing for a while.
June is always a good month. Michigan is green again and a lot happens. At the end of June is the Muskegon Art Fair. I always have fun there and this year while drifting found some unique items. I wrote a cool poem in Faces.
In July I was hit by the death of an author, Kate McNeil. I also had fun with a stack of authors at Once Upon a Book. It was a series of bittersweet moments. I would like to think the summer made me smile more. A big highlight was Motor City Nightmares. Check out Measure of a Hero
August snuck up after a summer full of weddings and funerals. The very last day of the month I wrote Positive Change as I once again interacted with people and kept learning.
I appreciated September simply because things were slowing down a little. I did get to enjoy a few great shows and I love talking to readers and helping them see into their own minds. I smiled and laughed a lot during September as I visited several areas and sold books by the dozens. As I was reading I enjoyed this post.
October brought Halloween and during the month of October I started playing with other social media sites and selling A Slice of Fear and Another Slice of Fear. I also found that by accident I had completed enough content for a third anthology and began putting it together. I wrote Lines during this time and it was a revelation to me in some ways.
There was a chill upon us all as November rolled in. November is typically when we start to see some really cold weather and we did, but we also saw some really warm weather. It was an odd month but I enjoyed it. I was more than a little successful with the nanowrimo event and went to several shows including Reed City. While at Reed City I wrote this.
That brings us to December and to the end of a very interesting year. This year I have experienced death many times over and weddings aplenty. I can think of no better and more exciting time then interacting with people and enjoying the fellowship that they give. The year has ended and I hope you have enjoyed 29,000 sunsets and all the fun I have had writing it. As usual my purpose was hopefully to uplift one or two people but as the year has gone on I have interacted with so many more. Each of you is amazing and I appreciate every reader that I have.
So as the sun sets on another day keep pushing and being amazing each day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and happy new year…
