  • I've been thinking thank you thoughts for all the people who write here. I have been truly blessed to have the inspiration and the confidence of so many new voices and ideas.

    I am a lazy writer, only writing what I am assigned. What my editor asks for. And school stuff. Did I mention that I am going back to school to be a teacher at my advanced age - ha! Pretty crazy. In any case, I am really enjoying writing what I am inspired to write. I had forgotten how great that is!

    So, I was going to say thank you but, you know, Burt did it so well that all I really need to say is ditto.

    Thank you.
