Got an “unofficial” acceptance last night, but I’m waiting for confirmation to give more details there.
Today I finished the story I was trying to complete last night and sent it off. Other than that, I emptied the Zumaya queues (that was cleaning!) and watched TV mostly. Still not well. Coughing bouts that get really nasty for example. Missed my niece’s birthday party, but we didn’t want to share our germs.
Getting ready to go crash again. Hopefully, will be well by the end of next week. I am tired of sick already!
I am cheating tonight. Here is an old poem…but hey, it’s a sonnet…
Happy the man who finds wedded bliss
whose partner is more than merely maid.
Whose fills his days with music played
upon lute or lyre to win fair kiss.
For such a lucky one, the reward is this–
much more precious than gold or jade…
a happiness no thinking man would trade
that — were it gone — he’d sorely miss.
To sleep beside the one you love
a joy throughout the whole year long
To fit together — hand and glove
and fill one’s days with light and song
such peace instills…as gentle dove
finds safety in a nest built strong.
