A Big Day
Today is a big day.
It's the last day of NaBloPoMo. With this post, I have blogged every day this month. Whoohoo! It's become obvious that I will work for the extrinsic reward of a possible prize.
Writing for its own sake... not so much.
Maybe if there is Ribena at the grocery store in Dublin and a young Irish lassie promised to bring a big jug to New York if she comes to visit, maybe I would keep posting for that.
Will post for bribes.
It's also a big day because I just found out that a photograph I took of a seaside village on an island in Greece is going to be published in a book on Mediterranean islands. Hurray for a ferry stop at a tiny little island that most people don't take pictures of! Hurray for photo researchers doing searches of Flickr accounts! Hurray for labeling photos with place names!
Lastly, it's a big day because today 27 months after the storm, repairs on the inside of my parent's house will be completed. There will still be a storage pod on the lawn, a full set of 30 year old kitchen cabinets on the front porch, no landscaping, and no garage/driveway/ sidewalk. But the inside will be done.
