3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge — Day 3

Erika Kind

This is the last day for the 3 Day 3 Quotes Challenge. Again thanks to Erika Kind from Liechtenstein for inviting me to this challenge. https://erikakind.wordpress.com/blog/

My quote is from Albert Rothman’s memoir, A Brooklyn Odyssey, Travails and Joys of a Boy’s Early Life. It’s the last verse of his poem, “Elevated Train.”
“I stand on a see-saw
straddling the balance point
hard to move forward
fearful I will drop
if I move past the middle.”

Albert's book cover

How many of us feel like we are balancing in the middle instead of moving forward?

The rules for the 3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge:

  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you.
  • Post one of your favorite quotes (different quote on each day) on three consecutive days. The quote can be from your favorite book, author, or your own. Don’t forget to acknowledge the source.

Book Launch at Pacific Grove November 10th

A Miracle Under the Christmas Tree, Harlequin’s 2012 anthology has my story, “Enough Time for Christmas” in it.
Jennifer Basye Sander, the editor/author gathered the contributors to celebrate at The Works Book Store. Jordan Bernal, The Keepers of Eire, and Julie Royce, Pilz, joined me in the two and a half hour drive there and back. The book signing kept my pen busy, and we enjoyed meeting the other writers whose stories were in the anthology. Most of us read excerpts of our writings with the aroma of fresh coffee, lattes, and teas that filled the room.
Thank you to Jennifer for creating the anthology and for our celebration. Thank you to Jordan and Julie for great company.
