The Austin Chronicle awards a
Critics Choice "Best of Austin" back pat to Street Lit:
Best Life Changer, 2016!
Thank you so much!
Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.
In the lull between dinner and second dinner, I offer up a thank you to all you folks who've helped Street Lit this past year, and since we began back in 2013. The books keep coming, and keep getting read. (That pipeline always needs filling!)Cash donations ebb and flow with the season, and have continued to sustain the Street Lit Authors Club. I've been able to keep the coffee hot, and pens and paper on hand. We've had donations come through our Amazon wish list, and it's always gratifying to walk into the Saturday workshop with a copy of "Bird by Bird" or "This Word Now" for a writer who needs it.
A special thanks to all the folks who've come to visit the workshop or helped out behind the scenes, and at the ARCH. Knowing you have our back and wish us well is part of what keeps us going. With the world around us in such turmoil, the words are a source of strength we can consistently rely on. Thank you ALL for helping with that.
If you can give, please do!
(If not, please share this w/your friends!)
I saw a cute little movie on Facebook this week, about 10 things to be happy about. The first was a roof over your head. On the list were things like clean sheets, warm socks, and people around you who care. I was saddened by an animation that was meant to remind the viewer to be grateful -- 7 out of 10 of the "requirements" were things so many do not have. So yes, be grateful, and be happy, and don't forget to be kind.
