I'm published!! :-) I have created a book which contains all my poems and short stories. I titled it "Mother Winter" after a poem my son was kind enough to comment on a couple of winters ago. If anyone is interested in a copy, just ask. I'll send a link to direct you to where it can be ordered. I'm very excited. I put this book together mostly for my family, and for something to give my grandchildren. I also decided to publish my poems and such at the request of some of you, who occasionally visited my journal. So, now that it's done, and if you are still interested, please let me know!
