Busy & Alive

Fellow Bloggers & Poets:

I'm still alive and kicking...have been busy with Christmas, New Year, and a new job that started on the 1st working 12 hour shifts. Trying to get re-adjusted to work those night shifts.

Will post and comment when I can. Between a job, family, Gin Bender Poetry Review duties and finalizing plans for a new journal to be announced this year, not much free time for my own writing.

Happy New Year and hope yours is Blessed as mine!
