Hi friends. Awake in the Mad World is my coming-of-age novel published in 2012. In addition to being on sale in paperback through the holidays, the Kindle version is 99 cents as a bargain ebook deal. As a gift for your community with me here, I’m offering a free pdf of my poetry collection, Little Human Accidents: Chaos Poems From The Brink when you download your Kindle copy of the novel. This is a Girl Scout’s honor sort of deal, so just let me know at email@example.com and I’ll pass along the collection to act as a companion read. When you email me, tell me something about your own creative interests and efforts. Cheers, my best to you, and Happy Holidays.
There is not a specific time for thankfulness and gratitude, but a general one. These things should be pervasive, a continuous thread, and obvious in our lives. A constant current of gratitude and thankfulness means awareness, not naivety or vulnerability. It is a reminder that we have basic life requirements and the ability to provide them for ourselves on a regular basis. We need others to remind us of this when we can’t or won’t, and also to remind us that many others do not have basics nor the ability to acquire and/or maintain them. Gratitude is not religious or political. It is HUMAN and PERSONAL and does not survive as words. It has to be a feeling that stirs one’s mind, sits on one’s shoulders and weighs heavily at one’s core. And then we must act on it. As an author friend of mine put it this morning, “Let go of wants and be grateful for health and human closeness.” Remind yourselves that every day is today.
Please share this with loved ones and continue the conversation. XO.
