Let’s KISS away this 4th A-Z blogging challenge with a little gratitude.

First up we have the letter A – and Arlee Bird, founder of the A-Z Blogging Challenge.
Thank you Arlee. I stumbled upon your A-Z just after I’d started blogging again. It seemed like a good idea to participate, to give me an incentive to write every day and you were a dedicated visitor, reader and commenter. There have been times when I’ve felt you were the ONLY reader – other than my mother. So thank you Arlee.
I’ll post a little gratitude everyday except Sunday – following the letters of the alphabet sequentially. There’s nothing like a little gratitude to make you feel better deep inside. You know the place I mean…it’s the same place where you feel the smile. Try it – smiling that is – and see if you can locate the place inside your being where you feel that smile, and feel the powerful, happy energy radiate outward from there into the world.
Yeah, I like gratitude and smiling. Thanks Arlee.
Here’s an audio track for you to listen to while you travel the A-Z
I must be nuts, I’m doing it again! And I’m moving again. In the middle of the challenge. It makes me think I should blog about moving. I could also blog my poems. As I write this I’m really not sure what I’ll blog – but for some insane reason, I’m doing it again! As if I haven’t got enough to do.
Thing is, I think I may have learned a thing or two about writing a blog post in the last year, and doing the A-Z was a great kick start. My goal for this challenge is to keep it under 500 words.
For some people that’s easy – but for me, as my 11th grade English teacher wrote on an essay I wrote about town planning (!!!): “You have mastered the extended form, now work on brevity.”

So folks that’s the only goal I have for now in this A-Z. Under 500 words. I’d like to even keep it under 300. See you in the A-Z.
And I just got an idea – I’m going to blog about the places I’ve lived – and if I think I can handle it, I’ll do 2 blogs (now I know I am nuts!) I might just get brave enough to blog A-Z poems on my other blog…let’s see if I can pull it off! No no no no – one is ENUF ALREADY! A-Z Places I’ve Lived! Could get interesting!
