Wishin’ and Hopin’

This isn't me. I don't wear a suit to work at home.

This isn’t me. I don’t wear a suit to work at home.

Well, it’s been several weeks since I submitted my manuscript to a publisher. I need to send it in to a few more, but the last couple of weeks have been strewn with medical appointments, mostly for my dad, but a couple for me as well (nothing serious, thanks).

But I’ll get back on the submission train this next week. Easter Week is a busy one for someone in four musical groups as I am.

I’m planning to write a poem a day as I did last year for National Poetry Month in April. They’ll be posted on Facebook. And I want to start the sequel to On the Wings of Eagles the first of May. I’ve written about it here before, but the working title is On Eagles’ Wings Upbourne. I miss writing in a longer form since I write so many of these few hundred word pieces.

So, I hope you’ll keep on wishin’ and hopin’ with me. By the way, if you don’t recognize the phrase, it’s a great song sung by Dusty Springfield. Here’s a link to a performance of it:


About huckfinn47

I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.
