Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.

The Bear with Stars in his Eyes!!

Oh my! I just got the "Starred entry from Quill & Quire" in my email inbox!!

Here is what they have to say about my contribution to the Bear book!! yay! yay!! This is a prestigious place to be reviewed well! :)

"Wench77 creates a very expressive teddy bear, by turns disconsolate, enthusiastic, and pestiferous. Dark washes of colour suggest the gloom of too many rainy days, relieved by the vivid colours of the imaginary journeys. While Bear’s face tells us just how he is feeling, we see the Writer only in parts—his bushy hair or pot belly—or from the back. His absorption in his desk work creates an amusing visual counterpoint to Bear’s energy and impatience—one that every parent and small child can identify with."

Yay! yay!

Now go and read the other two entries tonight... Last Thurs in San Fran, and A Letter to OB.
