Photo and News

This is a photo that I took on Saturday. This little guy is so cute that I actually begged him to pose. This was the result. :)

Also, I have two poems that were accepted by the Words on Paper Literary Journal. Yes, I am submitting my writing these days for publication. It has taken me sometime, but now it's without hesitation. So, check it out if you get a moment. Peace~

Great pic, as always. Very cool that your poems were accepted too. Also, hi! I'm still tuning in, reading from bloglines! Take care.

All the best Congrats!!!! So very happy for you.

I really like the photo. To me at lease, it is reminiscent of the kind twin black photographers M & M Smith took in Harlem back in the day.

You know, in addition to the writing, you are also a good photographer. :-)

Hi Stephen!
I am so happy that you got 2 poems published! They are beautiful. I love how I can just lose myself in your poems, just for those few seconds, I am living in your poems, not the real world! It is a welcome change!

Also, I love the pic. Kinda makes me think of a young you.

You my friend, are a multitalented person, that is for sure! Have a great day!

That little dude is going to be a force to be reckoned with when he gets older! lol

Congratulations on getting your work published! I'm going to check it out now.

Stephen A. Bess said...

Thank you sir. I've been submitting lately.

Yes, Old Roanoke is dear to my heart because it's based on my life in North Carolina. Thank you. :)

He's something isn't he. He was reluctant, but I convinced him. Thank you. I hope you enjoy the poetry.

Things are just dandy here. I'm pushing my East Coast trip back to March. I will be sure and let you know - I can't wait to meet the fam. Maybe I'll get to see your daughter perform too. I'll give you the dates as soon as I have them.

Peace Stephen,

What's happening? Oh, I guess I know. You've been submitting your writings for pub. Much respect and I hope these editors have the good sense and judgment to accept them.

I'll be dropping by wordsonpaper.wordpress, btw. Congrats.

Stephen A. Bess said...

sounds good. I guess I'll see you closer to Spring then. Take care.

Good to see you! Thanks for that comment. It feels good to submit my work for pub. I hope that it can be appreciated by many. Peace to you as well~
