A new year for all with the 3 Ps


Time has flown already since New Year’s Eve. I’m back at work and hardly feel like I’ve had a holiday. Okay I did get to lie in the sun with a book a couple of times but – remember all that rain?

I did get a new edit done of ‘Finding Tarzan’ and ‘Thomas’s Story’ but not much else (as far as writing goes).

I have an upbeat feeling about 2011. I just know it’s going to be a better year than last. Well – it’s just gotta be.

So to everyone who had a shitty 2010 I wish you a beautiful, fulfilling and happy 2011. I hope all your dreams either start to come true or really do come true. I hope the goals you’ve set yourself are attained and you keep motivated and stimulated.

I wish you the 3 Ps peace, prosperity and positivity.

Here’s to the best of 2011.
