ABSOLUTELY 2012 ~ AT THE BIJOU


“So we beat on, 
boats against the current, 
borne back ceaselessly
 into the past.”

~ Literary Hero of Absolutely*Kate, F. Scott Fitzgerald
billowing souls . . . as souls should be billowed

Therein sails
our best futures.

Cross currents,
great tidings,
fair winds,
following seas,

to you and yours
 from the best 
of what is me.


This year is dedi'kated to:
OUT OF THE PAST ~ into all our Futures ~ Mitchum & Greer

The shimmery shadows of NOIR,

The Authors who breathe life
into mere wordings,

The laughter-ever-after
when colleagues become friends,
inspiring where least-expected,

ABSOLUTELY BEST PARENTS OF THE WORLD
And naturally,
from my core and coeur,

~ My Mom and Dad,
Franny and Paul,
reunited in their celestials
. . . once again

TIME KEEPS ON SLIPPIN'  SLIPPIN' SLIPPIN' ... INTO OUR FUTURES

for how your superb collaborations and how authors-taking-authors the higher soars  AT THE BIJOU

See you in the brave and brazen New*Year with Jump*Jivin' JANUARY NOIR 
to cheer!

~ e'er your pal,
with auld lang syne ~ 
we'll take a cup o'kindness then, eh?

A very Happy New Year to you too dear Kate!

I'm more than happy to keep my seat warm at the bijou, where popcorn pops, and stories flow to mingle with the stuff of dreams!

Here's to a fabulous 2012 at the Bijou in the best of company!

A Happy New Year wish to all of you At the Bijou, especially Kate who works so hard to make this an enviable site. We appreciate your efforts, Kate, to give us a great place to post our stories, noir and blanche, so others can be entertained.
