Where did April go?

A poem a day during April's NaPoWriMo challenge turned out to be only a dozen.  Still and all, I am glad for the challenge.  Since then I've spent eager hours preparing nearly forty pages in support of an application to spend an extended period with a small cohort under the direction of several writer-mentors.  Alas, I did not even make the 'short list' for consideration. 
But late spring and early summer have provided enough stellar days to brighten anyone's spirits, and I have intensified my efforts to weed out closets and shelves, empty boxes and bins, clear counters, desk, and my  mind for the work that is to come.  For work I shall.  I shall persevere in writing and, lordwilling, publish words of encouragement for others.
I am thankful for members of several groups (writing, spiritual growth, speaking), as well as family, neighbors and friends who support and encourage me for who I am and for who I am becoming as a writer and a person.
Is it possible that I have just entered my seventh decade?  I am still a teenager/young adult at heart, with much to learn!  I am also thankful for this.
