HAPPINESS IS



The July/August issue of Writer's Digest has a very happy looking Sarah Dessen on the cover.

And I know my smile was bigger and broader than Sarah's when I turned to page16 and The Winners of WD's Annual Poetry Awards.


See anybody you know?

I still can't believe that out of 2,700 entries my poem placed 9th.

But I'm happier than Sarah Dessen to see the evidence in print.

What am I? Happier than happy can be.

And there's no broccoli or spinach in my teeth. Probably 'cos I haven't had any since our retreat. *off to find shopping list*
