It is almost the New Year. I feel it rushing towards me even as I’m walking steadily towards it. I have friends from out of town who will come to our mountain here at Killian Knob; they will spend the week with us, ring in a new year with us in the mountain way.
This week, I probably will see some cover art for my novel. Just writing that makes me smile. I can’t wait to see the cover designs – can’t wait to see how the book will be interpreted. I gave them a few images and they had a few images and from there, it will be born. I trust their expertise in this area. We are still looking at titles. That makes me smile, because Virginia Kate has had so many titles. The perfect one seems just out of my reach.
My brother is sending me photos from when we were kids. There is one he sent where I look so solemn. My eyes are dark and unreadable. I want to read my eyes – try to see what is lurking there. I am probably too close to myself to see. What do you see in my eyes? What is that face below saying? I have a half-crooked smile (I still smile that way) – one side lifted slightly. But, still, my face seems as if it is almost expressionless? There are a few bird track freckles across my nose. My long hair is pulled back into a ponytail. My eyes are dark and unreadable. What is this little girl thinking? What do you read here?
My friends – I notice we all are not "blog-walking" as much as we used to. Is it the changes to MSN? Is it the holidays? Is it just life life life in the way? I do hope if you stop by, you leave a hello in the comments. I will come return your visit. That said, soon, I will have no knowledge of what my coming days will be like – especially once the book is out, but I do know I am going to work hard to make this book a success…and the ones to follow (Must think Positive! *smiling*)
Here’s to your New Year. Be safe; be well.
And here is Little Kat.
