I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Half way through already!
An unexpected complication brings me to Florida today. Something I had never planned on, but here I am. Life is full of surprises and we just never know when one will hit us between the eyes.
This has happened to a very close blogger friend, one whom most of you know. Roland Yeoman's had surgery done on his face from complications of cancer. I hate cancer. Many of my family had died from it. Please take a moment an say or prayer or send a good vibe Roland's way.
Tomorrow I have my surgery. Just a scraping of cells that got caught under the flap they lift to laser the eye. Of course, when it comes to my eyes I am a bit nervous. But I know all of you will send me good vibes and prayers as well.
This week DOES hold one HAPPY surprise though, it's Michelle Wallace's (Writer in Transit) three year blogoversary!
YAY MICHELLE! AND she is hosting a very intriguing bloghop featuring a most fascinating concept in African philosophy.... UBUNTU. Great word, isn't it?!
UMBUNTU?... you ask.
"In Africa, there is a concept known as UBUNTU – the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world, it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others." – Nelson Mandela.
So this week with unexpected surprises/issues that our community once more comes together to support each other.
Also Michelle has suggested to post anything creative, poem, illustration, etc. I had created a piece for a recent contest I had entered in the SCBWI ... sadly nothing came of it BUT, I love the whimsy and the bright colors and I do hope you all enjoy it.
If you have time PLEASE visit the other hoppers, on Michelle's site.
ALL the best to you my friends!
