I'm Walt. And I'm Marie Elena.
This is the collaboration of two kindred spirits; partners in rhyme;
"the best friends we've never met."
All "Across the Lake. Eerily."

March 1st, and it seems I just got Christmas put away. Oops … that line was already taken. But how true it is!

I can’t speak for Buffalo, but March definitely came in like a lamb here in Maumee. 40’s and sunny, with chipmunks tearing around the yard and birds singing their little hearts out. It’s sunny in my heart as well, as I have had more fun blogging with Walt than I thought possible. I can’t believe we’re closing in on a month now. Partner, I’m glad you talked me into this. It’s an honor being on the same page with you, in more ways than one.

Turns out March 1st was also a big day for me. My inbox was a friend today, offering exciting news!

1. Two of my poems will appear in the June 2010 issue of Berry Blue Haiku.

2. A short story of mine entitled “Jeep and the Real Me” will appear in the August 2010 issue of Pockets magazine for children.

I’m just so excited, I can’t stand it! So, Mr. Lion, please Bear with me while I roar!
