Well it's usually at Thanksgiving time that we all reflect on those things we have to be thankful for. Today, on New Year's Eve day, I've decided to do a little assessment of the past annum as it related to me. 2013 was perhaps one of the best years in my life. It was filled with good health, good friends and the opportunity to join all of you here as a regular daily contributor on The Political Carnival.
It's also been a year filled with surprises, one of them that reflects on my future contributions at the Carnival. I've been offered and accepted a teaching position which will impact the number of posts I'll be making here. I won't be gone as you could never remove my love of this site and all of it's readers. Rather I'll be limited in my writings here while I tend to the formative university minds that will be in my trustworthy hands. This opportunity to cultivate voracious young creatives seeking a future in the entertainment industry in which I've been blessed to serve for a very long time, was one too great to pass up. I had two mentors as I broke into the show business arena. They've both passed on but what they taught me was immeasurable. Now I hope it's my opportunity to pay it forward.
A special tip of the hat to Laffy and Paddy for encouraging me and supporting my accepting the new assignment. I hope that perhaps a little less of me will make my posting here a bit more special. Please continue to give the greatest support to these two fine women who toil arduously to bring you the world every day. They pour out their souls so you can always stay on top of everything newsworthy with a visit to the Political Carnival.
So thank you all.
Here's to a wonder 2014 -- to your health, prosperity and happiness. Happy New Year!!!
