Happiness is made of this....



I am standing a little taller today; perhaps my head is even a little larger. (I don’t know for sure because I have a perm and it has already made my noggin look 23% bigger.


The reason for my potentially increased hat size is the awesome compliment I received via text. A dear reader (who shall remain anonymous) commented re: my last blog entry…excuse me whilst I scroll down on my cell phone; ah yes, here it is:


“That post made me cry and almost pee my pants!”


Now—and this probably goes without saying, my golden goal as a writer, my trophy at the end of the tunnel, my Emmy/Tony/Oscar is simply this: (And I would like to express it in the form of a haiku)


For a reader like you


To experience


An involuntary bodily reaction


In response


To words


That I have written.


This reaction could be a number of things (haiku alert);


a cough of delight

a belch of enchantment

a little toot of happiness

a sneeze of satisfaction

a few moist tears of pleasure

or yes…

even the above mentioned condition.



Can you blame me for being on top of the world?
