Though I am trying to be rather high-minded and literary on this blog, from time to time, being as human as everyone else, I have to toot my own horn. So I just wanted to brag about the fact that Cafe De La Pensee just announced the winners for their December writing contest and I have won in the category of Science. I also won in November in the category of Humanities.. So this being the 2nd day of a new year and I already have been vindicated literary speaking and I hope this bodes well for the rest of the year. You can check out Cafe De La Pensee at http://cafedelapensee.com It is a wonderful site that showcases writing in all fields and also photography and art. For those of you who have been actually reading my blog, don’t worry I will return to my normal dark, brooding and gloomy self in a an hour or so. For now let me luxuriate in my small triumph!
