A day of Change

By Liz Adair

To you in the southern half of the United States, December 21 may not have much significance, but to those of us in northern climes, we watch for it with almost as much anticipation as we do Christmas. For us, it's full dark at 4:30 in the afternoon right now, and today is the day that the days change. Tomorrow sunset will a couple minutes later, sunrise a little earlier. It's wonderful what getting over this hump can do for the spirits. I've always said I understand why the pagans had a festival at this time of year. I have my own private winter solstice celebration each December 21.

There's another change that happens today: I will no longer be a member of the ANWA Founder and Friends Team. I'm a little sad about that, but I thought it was time to move on and give someone else the opportunity to grow in this wonderful cybernursery.

Thank you Marsha, our fearless leader, for extending the invitation and teaching us all how to blog. I know I'm not the only one who has ventured out on my own because of my experience here.

I'll continue to visit so I can keep up on what all my team members are doing. I feel like I know you all. And, I'll be excited to get to know the new members.

And, I hope you'll come visit me at .

Bye for now, but I'll see you all at the ANWA conference. And, I hope you'll plan to come to my publication party the night before.


  1. You're wonderful. I've loved reading your insights and will visit sezliz often.

  2. I look forward to seeing you at your publication party and at the conference, Liz. I will miss your wit and wisdom here...but that means I just have to go see you at sezliz!

  3. You'll be very, very much missed here, Liz!

  4. Liz, I'll miss you here, but see you there--on your blog and at the new book party and the conference, and who knows where else? I'm expecting my copy of your book any time now. Can hardly wait.

  5. Yes Liz you're right, us in the southern climes don't get such a nice Dec 21st gift. What a great idea. You will be missed and thanks for your insight. I'll check out your blog often. Continue to grow!

  6. When I hit the post-holiday doldrums, the fact that the days are getting longer is always a bright spot for me--figuratively & literally. Even in Arizona! I've enjoyed your posts, Liz, & will keep up with you now on your blog.

  7. Your blogs will be missed here, but you are so good to comment on the writing of others and I'm aware of a few other places to catch you online. Got your book Tuesday and can't wait to see you at your publication party and at the conference. Take care, my friend.
