I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate! I’ve put my poetry on the back burner for the last couple of months with the holidays and other things going on that prevented my time alone that I usually spend writing and submitting. I hope to get back into the swing next year! It’s been a year of bad health for me (4 surgeries from Jan-May for under the skin cancer on my face) and sinus/sore throat problems I have had since September. I’ll take a more in depth look at my year in writing later. Here is the story behind one of my favorite Christmas Carols, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.
