My writer friend from Chatauqua, Kathy, who recently retired from a similar position, has been my cheerleader and sent me encouraging notes all day. Then, that night, just before I turned into bed early, there was an e-mail from Joy Cowley! I could just hear her saying these words in her New Zealand speaking voice.
Hi Deborah, lovely to hear from you. The new magazine Hello looks great. It is even waterproof! I'm sure your rhymes will find a home in it.
It couldn't have come at a better time! Now, back to waiting. The decision is up to the Superintendent, and he's out of town....
