What goes around . . .

. . . And so time moves quickly. Another winter come and going, a new dog, a son getting married, and (finally) stories going to print. Life does continue, it seems, and I am happy to be carried along on the tsunami. Despite the pains and losses of the past two years, I am stronger than ever, better than ever with the confidence born of knowing that what whatever I screw up, it will pass, whatever tragedies lie ahead, I can handle them.

Well, most of them.

There are some things that you know you could never get over, never rise from, and all we can do is pray we never face them.

As for me, well–forward.

Another Step Forward

On June 19, 2010, I will become the first MFA graduate from the new Northwestern University MFA-Creative Writing program. I am proud of the achievement, and look forward to setting new goals. This was a long and at times excruciating journey, and I hope to be an inspiration to others. Nothing’s impossible, if you are willing to put in the effort. You can reach any goal if you ignore those who say you are not young or strong or smart enough. If someone else can do something, chances are so can you, although sometimes you have to find your own way to do it. Be strong, be persistent, be successful. Good luck.
