Not my usual short post. Why?
When I first started this blog, my intention was to write  fifty short stories, and drum roll please, [um, that's a horn. Never mind], and I have completed my intent. [What's that? No speech, please we beg you] .What a tough crowd.
First I want to thank God for granting me this talent of putting life together in words. My calling with a social conscience and a romantic flair.
[William-Adolopole Bougureau - A Calling]
Secondly, those who stopped by to read and comment. I am grateful. If I made you smile, laugh, think, questioned, raised awareness, awakened emotions, thank you. These flowers are for you.
[Vasily Andreyevich Tropin - Girl with Roses]
And lastly, those who will stop by in the future. There are a gazillion blogs out there and you made your way here. Thank you. There are other blogs that you can also make your way to. [What? Where?] Check out my blogroll. Wonderful blogs with awesome pictures, beautifully written poems, inspiring quotes, information, thoughts, . . . [Wait, don't leave now, finish reading].
This sounds like goodbye. [Yay! Who said that?] Well in a way it is. No more stories will be written here. I am closing this part of my life that included other lives, things that maybe you or I went through in one or more of these stories. So as my favorite teddy bear and I prepare to drive off into the sunset, [wait, flat tire], walk off into the sunset, I again say thank you. Special thanks to you Trisha, you’re amazing!
