Today I received word that my writing has been published in the 300th literary venue since beginning to send out submissions in 2014.
And earlier this month my 1,500th poem was published during that same span of time.
Two nice milestones to reach.
My motto remains the same. One step and then the next. Always looking forward.
I sat on the front porch this morning watching the rain fall along with the leaves, and I thought about my amazing family and friends who have supported and encouraged me during this life. I am truly a lucky man.
I honestly believe that the real work has only just begun. I have big dreams, and I know that in order for them to be achieved my actions must follow suit.
I am more excited than ever about the possibilities of what the future holds.
Above all, I am extremely thankful.
