When I was 5

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
― John Lennon

This marks the 5th anniversary of my years on RB. Alas things have changed here a lot quieter in some respects and a lot louder and strident in a minority of others – but overall the quietness is prevalent and saddening – quietness also means not a lot of happiness is to be found.

I don’t make a great fanfare of my art – no “I’ve been featured journals” or 100 of groups submitted to. I measure my success by the acceptance of my art by my trusted friends – friends who I found here in the early days but increasingly are to be found elsewhere as we all move on in life’s journey.

All the best to you wherever you are on your journey.
