Poem #277 Wishes Everyone a Happy 2011!

A New Year, A New Friend
by Amy LV

Students - sometimes we are very busy, so busy that it is difficult to imagine carrying on with our work.  But it is at those very times that pushing through and finding a moment for our passions is important.  This holiday week has been wonderful - full of house guests and celebrating.  But yesterday, on my way home from the grocery store, I pulled over into a parking lot to write.  I knew it would be a busy New Year's Eve (ice skating!), and I wanted to be sure to give my notebook a bit of my time and attention, just as if it were a hungry pet.

    I'm not so conceited to think you write these just for me, but I have to admit that sometimes, the thought pops into my head.

    And, I kinda wish you'd quit numbering because I don't like knowing that the end is coming.

    Thanks for writing,

  4. "Now mystery.
    Soon history."


  5. Thank you Bill and Mary Lee and Ruth!
    You know what, Ruth? I think I do.
    And I hear you about the end. I'm pondering that one. Happy 2011! 'Wish I could get you all together for some cocoa. A.
