Isn't that a lovely observation?
I've thought about it a lot since then, and I realize I am generally a serious-minded, thoughtful person. And that's great. But this year I want to lighten things up a bit. I want to laugh more. So the One Little Word I've selected is...

So, maybe, this will be my Julia year? I will be focusing on delight in all things, having fun, laughing.
I do have two books coming this year... FRESH DELICIOUS: Poems from the Farmers Market and WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON ANTARCTICA: Poems from the Frozen Continent. Talk about fun!
If any bloggers are interested in reviewing either of these titles, I would be delighted to request a review copy. Please email me! irene (at) irenelatham (dot) com.
