Poetry wins! Susan Rich is #1 in the TLS!

In October I posted a blog about friend and poet Susan Rich. She entered her poem 'Different Places to Pray' in the Times Literary Supplement Poetry Competition and she won! You can read the article here.  Congratulations Susan, I am so happy for you! What a great Chrismukkah present!

You know what else would make a good Chrismukkah present? Susan's book Cures Include Travel. Pick it up at your local bookshop and start planning your trip around the world!

Charlie Brownest

I think there must be something wrong with me Linus. Christmas is coming but I'm not happy. I don't feel the way I'm supposed to feel. I just don't understand Christmas, I guess. I like getting presents and sending christmas cards and decorating trees and all that, but I'm still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed.

Charlie Brown, you're the only person I know who can take a wonderful season like Christmas and turn it into a problem. Maybe Lucy's right, of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you're the Charlie Brownest!
