Musings in the Dark: Giving Thanks...


Giving Thanks...

After reflecting, which I try to do periodically, I acknowledge that I am grateful for AT LEAST 3 things:

1.  Another year of a healthy, active and productive life.
2.  Not spending another day doing a job I abhorred to the point of tears.
3.  Actually having real time, quality time, with my nieces and nephew.  I didn't realize until recently that it mattered them knowing exactly who their Auntie is as a person, and not just a name associated with their father.

It is not a stretch for me to come up with many more things to be thankful for, but this is as much as I need to share.  Friends and fans of the Dark, acknowledge the things that you're thankful for, share them if you want, and by all means, enjoy the day.


  1. Like you Amaya, there are so many things that I am truly thankful for now. But the one I am celebrating the most is finally publishing a book. It will be up on Kindle either by the end of this week or the beginning of this week. I am currently formatting it myself for the Kindle platform. I am done want to mess it up. It is a non-fiction book by the way.

    I started to working on a fictional short story book a while back, but I really don’t think that I am strong with the descriptions. I feel like I was saying the same thing over and over again. I wanted to make it be around 15, 000 words or so. I think I actually got as far as 6, 000 words. So that is on hold for a while.

  2. Shana, that's awesome! That is an accomplishment! It is something to be proud of.
