Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

You know this not posting everyday has been bothering me. I’ve mentioned enough times that I had to give myself time to get used to working again and then let the writing creep back in. My only saving grace during this hiatus was doing the cover for:

Out of the three W’s – wedding, working, and writing, wedding and working have pretty much consumed me since last August. Working has assimilated itself nicely into my life. I’m there nearly a year and have it down pat. My mind is no longer spent at night due to learning the computer and remembering all the details required to close the club. Let us suffice to say that there is more room in my brain now and working no longer qualifies as an excuse not to post. Wedding is another story. With the date 7 weeks away time is beginning to pick up pace with much to still be done…but not enough to say I can’t post everyday.

Oh okay, truth is I’m scared to commit to doing it again because I’m afraid I won’t be able to do it and that will cause more anxiety. Sooooo…I came up with another idea. Tonight at Writers Night Out I was talking to the college student that is interning this summer at the Cape Cod Writers Center. She is a poet and was telling me her summer project was a Twitter project. She is going to try to get her poems down to 140 characters and post them on Twitter. What a great idea! I can’t think of a better way to discipline focusing on a concept.

Everyday I have many, many ideas that I would love to bring to this blog table, but I really don’t have time to flesh them out to a 600 word post. How about if I post in tweeting format – fitting the concept in 140 characters or less? I CAN commit to 140 characters! I will call them Tiny Musings. Starting tomorrow. Don’t miss it!

And so, as another day goes by, don’t let what you can’t do get in the way of what you CAN do, and…I have written.
