Hello, dear friends. Today is a very special day.
First: It’s the last day of National Novel Writing Month and I’m happy to say that I met my goal of 50,000 words on Thanksgiving Day, giving me the weekend to relax and live in the moment. Yay!
Second and most important: It is the birthday of the man who enabled me to complete NaNoWriMo in record time.
Every day I’m thankful he is in my life. For his birthday, I dedicate the following song as sung by the late great Etta James.
“How far would I travel to be where you are
How far is the journey from here to a star … “
lyrics by Irving Berlin, ~1932
