The Terrible Haircut

Dear terrible haircut, how you have distressed me on this day so cold,
With your strange lengths and lines and angles too bold.
I remember the morning, with hair so long and beautiful to behold,
Now it is gone and I think, what the hell happened? Oh, it must be my mind going old,
For how could I have forgotten this has happened once before,
Instead thinking, cut it again? Sure, why not, let's give it a go.
Are you long or are you short? Should I try to repair the insult done to you?
How much worse could I make it, anything would be better than this do.
Perhaps if I pull you will grow to even lengths, maybe at the least past my chin?
It would sure save me the misery of hiding you behind closed doors or caps and pins.
Sigh. Alas, there is nothing that I can do but let you be.
I must wait for you to grow, but please hear my plea...
Grow little-short-long hair. Grow for me and I promise to never do this again,
That is until the next time. What can I say, sometimes I have an addled brain.

Happy New Year to all!

So this is a year I am especially excited about.

First off, for Christmas my husband gave me something I've been wanting for a long time. A trip to Ireland! I am looking so forward to my trip I wish I could start packing now. I can only imagine the stories that will be born from my visits to all those castles!

Secondly, I have many stories in my head that are dying to get on paper this year, one of which I have just started writing. It's funny, every time I sit to start a new book my biggest fear is that the words will not come, that I will draw a blank. Sure, I have the idea of the story in my head when I sit, but it's the details, the dialogue, how a character gets from point A to point B, that only become clear once I start typing. The process never fails to amaze me, and yesterday did not dissapoint.

I can't wait to see what else the year has in store for me!
