It is not easy to create and hold onto a group
(ask many of those that have folded up over the years )
You start off with the best of intentions, and hope that its message and ideals attract like-minded individuals.
You're lucky if you find such folks, and double-lucky if after so many years
those folks still stick around (and new ones are interested).
I wish I could say that I've been the most active leader around here
because goodness knows the last couple of years have sent my world in a tizzy
and I've considered so many times just closing my eyes and clicking the 'delete' button.
But then again, when you log into the site, open your inbox and then get an email from Elle
saying that this little ol' group of yours has been nominated yet again as "Best Group", you have to smack yourself in the face and re-think a few things.
"The WDC Angel Army" is my baby. My pride and joy. Even if it would have killed me to delete it,
I keep wondering if I'm worthy of still being its leader.
The angel/witch running things lately has been the incomparable Shsssh, It's Just Me!.
I cannot begin to thank her enough for all she's done to help me while I try to keep the real world in order.
She and its tireless members are the ones who should get all the glory and credit
for making the group still a force to be reckoned with around Writing.com.
(great now I'm crying again)
Either way, thanks so, so, SO much to the person(s) who nominated us for the 6th year in a row
(i think...I'm beginning to lose count).
You are the reason we have our wings and keep on flying.
P.S: I would be remiss in not thanking innerlight for her help!
For despite all she's going through as well, she always does her best to keep to her duties!
One of my favorite actors, of all time, is James Dean.
Don't ask me how I stumbled across him (though I'm guessing it was during one of my random T.V. channel surfing and fell upon this handsome brooding guy in a red jacket on Turner Classic Movies or something).
Either way, I was hooked; and prone to my 'Pisces' nature, I decided to go gung-ho into everything Dean.
Watched all (three) his movies: East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, Giant.
Dove into as many autobiographies as I could find in my local libraries and even came to learn he had some television show appearances (including one show with Ronald Reagan. Hah!)
Oh and he was also on some stage productions, but no luck finding any footage of that...yet.
Anyway, while browsing the highways and byways of YouTube, I came across this great tribute video for him, and even if you aren't a big fan or don't know much about him, the creator did a fantastic job chronicling his very short but exciting life.
P.S: If you're interested in watching Dean in his TV shows, you can type in the following the YouTube search thingy especially: James Dean, a Long Time Till Dawn and James Dean on TV.
The Throne(s) (13+) Not covered in the finest gold or carved from treasured ivory...
(don't think I posted it here, but I am technically 'away' for the next couple of weeks as we begin the official burial ceremonies for my father. This is a tribute to him (and my mother) as the day(s) approaches.
Thanks for reading. )
