When I got up this morning, there was a pot of hot coffee ready. That’s all. End of story.
Oh, except for the part about how I live alone. And I did not make that coffee.

The blog post I wrote,
“Oh Dude!” has been published in the LA Times today in a column called “LA Affairs” and under the title “A dreamy dude on a dude ranch.”
Personally, I liked my title better. They also made a few changes to which I prefer the original. The art work doesn’t look like me at all.
And one reader is making comments at the end of the online version that are … well … interesting. When people who follow my blog comment on it, it’s usually friendly, and it feels intimate. When a total stranger is critical in a huge public forum, well, let’s just say I hadn’t anticipated it! Oh, the vicissitudes of fame!
But all that said, I’m still thrilled!
Most writers questions whether their work is any good. If they’re not questioning, it’s probably not very good.
Having blog followers and facebook Likes is one way to feel good. Getting published is another. Getting paid is still another. Today I have all three!
I send my genuine thanks to anyone who has supported my return to writing after many years.
