Spring and Babies...rebirth and life!
I heard bad news about a friend from school today. She's going to have a double mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. And in that you see the balance of life. As an author, I use my emotions ( a wide variety at that ) to offer to readers a rollercoaster of tears and joy, fear and the thrill of the chase.
Life is like that. One minute you feel so sad for a friend or relative, or even a country like Haiti for that matter, then one tiny life will lift you up and bring you to the forefront of bliss.
May all your joys make the sad things in life easier to deal with. If the tears I bring you are happiness, then I've done my job...and well.
