In This New Year

May You ... 

Have light shine away
the darkness of your valley
so you can reach home.

 Meet along the way
strangers who treat you kindly
 and with a full smile.

 Feel deep in your heart
the warmth of those beside you
 who also love you.

Nevine, so nice to have you stop by. As I slowly re-enter the blogosphere, it is good to encounter familiar faces. Thanks for your congratulations.

A beautiful new wish for a shining new year! May 2014 be a great year for you Judith!

And I'm SO EXCITED about your poetry volume - couldn't wait for the Kindle version, so have ordered my print copy from the UK - quicker delivery to South Africa. I should get it by the end of January - can't wait to read it. Will do some tweets as well to spread the word!!) Hope 2014 brings you many sales and more writing. :)

Judy, my year is already blessed by your presence in it. I hope you enjoy the book. I'm moved by your spreading the word. Tweeting is among the things I have to start doing. I have the account set up. I just have to start using it. It will be @peaceonjourney. The other thing is, I am finishing up constructing a new website dedicated solely to the book. It will be As you well know, the writing is on a different order than promotion. I'm learning as I go, and I’m still in toddler mode. In any case, when I reach a decent comfort level with both twitter and the new website, I will be announcing both on this blog.
