I saw a quote this quote today and it sparked some interesting thought on my part:

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This quote really hit me in a way that allowed me to reflect on the last year and some of the personal aspects of my life I have decided to let go.  One of them being parts of my family.

The closer I get to finishing my book, the more and more I think of publishing, and the more and more I think about the many times I told myself I would publish my poetry.  I have sang this tune to myself many times, and still I have not completed that task.

It is a task that I will need to complete, because part of my literary goal is to have a book of poetry that I created, autographed and sitting on my bookshelf.  As my poetry, dating back to circa 2006-2007, sits in a binder in a nightstand drawer, I decided this weekend that I need to start getting that put in a more permanent form.
