🍾 Happy New Year! 🎇
Well now, friends and followers, 2021 has been complicated, hasn’t it? I don’t know about you but I feel wrung-out and all kinds of weird – hm, could it be the wacky weather or maybe the long-term effects of a two-year long pandemic. One blogger I know stated the continual loss and grieving may contribute to feeling wrung-out and disheartened. – whatever is contributing to it, it’s sure been a rollercoaster ride of strained emotions. If you think you’ve been alone in feeling this way, rest assured you are one of many and you are not alone.
As written by Plato: “Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool”
He might have been talking about himself yet his words are prophetic and powerful. I never thought we would be living through a pandemic and yet here we are.
I will move onto less troubling topics,. Most of the early part of 2021 was recording my two most recently published books as audio books. It’s a goal to strive for my material to be offered in alternative formats for the blind and people with print disabilities like dyslexia. All my books are available from audible.com and as digital books from the National Library of Congress talking book catalog. The specific links and everything Annie is on my website, www.annchiappetta.com .
I would not have been able to do it myself, and huge thanks goes out to voice actor and the best narrator, Lillian Yves for being there to help.

Here’s a haiku for you to ponder:
Hands cup grains of sand
Delicate and Rough to touch
Stars pulsing through time
Dreya the book dragon sends wing beats of creativity and kindness your way, 🐲
