The Blog Hop Of Joy
Before I write anything I just want to get this out there: Kyra Lennon is going to be famous. Just you watch!
Now back to our regularly scheduled blog post...
Kyra and the equally amazing Clair Dugmore came up with this pretty exciting blog hop to kick off March. All you have to do is list five things that bring you joy. I'm sure we all can list more than five but for the sake of this event I'll resist the urge. Just this once.
And we begin with:
My Family. They drive me crazy sometimes but I don't think I can live without them. We've been through so many downs that our bond is near invincible.
The Internet. This might seem geeky but I absolutely cannot live without the internet. Sure, I survived without it for, um, sixteen years but now that I have it I'll never go black -- I mean back. Yes, I absolutely meant to say back.
Shameless US. I. LOVE. THIS. SHOW. I don't watch TV but I make it my duty to watch Shameless every Sunday without fail! They bring me so much joy because their attitudes and living circumstances remind me so much of where I grew up. It was never pretty -- or easy -- but me and my family made it work as a team. And we made it out.
Go team Gallaghers!
And finally, the thing that brings me the most joy is The Prospect Of A Brighter Tomorrow. Yeah, yeah.. it's gooey and full fo crap but it's true. For me, this means so much more than that -- it's about my ideas, my stories and my art. Every time I write or brainstorm an idea, I imagine what it would be like if it came true; what it would mean for me to be a success. That always, ALWAYS, brings me joy. I guess it's just that people and technology don't always bring you satisfaction but your imagination is infinite -- it will never disappoint.
At this very instant, I'm imagining myself at a book signing with a crowd of five hundred people eagerly waiting to reach my table.
Tell me that isn't joy.
