serendipity

Here is a story for you.

Once upon a time, my friend the Contessa told me
she had been published in a magazine or two.

"Well, doesn't that sound like fun?" I thought.

So, I submitted some things here:


and they were published like this:


(a little bit closer now . . .)


I feel like a very happy dork.

A dork, because all the other pieces in this issue
are so much more interesting than mine.

But a very happy dork none-the-less, because there
are my little French girls, and fairy, for all to see.

See?

(Don't you love happy endings?)

you do such fine work that it does not surprise me that you got published. By all means submit more. You have what some might call a "God-given" talent. Wherever it came from, you've got it.
