Those of you who have followed my work a long time know that each year, on or just prior to, my Nov. 12th birthday, I write a poem to celebrate the age I am turning. This year's the big 30th. As you read through the poem and review, let me know. What do YOU think my next thirty years will hold?
This poem is a tribute to YOU. Thanks for your support of my writing over the years!
Three decades have come and gone
And this birthday, I’m going strong
I’ve lived dreams, once beyond my reach
I’m richly blessed because of each
I’ve risen from challenge and pain
And found the strength to go again
Once a preemie, willed to fight
I stand today, my future bright
Through thirty years, I’ve lived a lot
Some times were grand; others were not
I’ve made a difference, in my way
O’er the years that led to this day
Thanks to my poems, I’ve moved the soul
I have touched hearts and made some whole
My own heart has been humbled too
By the dreams I’ve been blessed to do
Three decades in my life, this day
Thirty years quickly passed away
But left behind, memories made true
Each one is special, thanks to you
Your faith in me makes life worthwhile
Therefore, I’ll spend this day in style
Looking back, I've much to behold
What will the next thirty years hold?

|Knowing your challenges and recent disappointments, I so glad you've come out on top.
As one who has traversed those next 30 years, your future is bright as your writing and you will be famous if a big storm surge doesn't come, Texas City doesn't blow up--again, and this old economy doesn't turn to anarchy.
Your colleague up the road,
