Hello Grafted In Reader,
I am glad for your visit be it the first time or a seeming innumerable time. Today is Monday, February 12, 2024 in my corner of blog land.
It is also said to be the 100th anniversary for the composition, "Rhapsody In Blue" by the late George Gershwin. Hence, this post is titled to honor this man and his life in music!
This is also a planning session for this blog. I request your comments on the following over the next few weeks.
I am considering broadening the scope of this blog to include a monthly author update or newsletter. Below, is a sample draft of what is envisioned.
Would this be of interest to you, in addition to, or separate from our visits as they have occurred?
Proposed Sample Newsletter
David C. Russell
In 1996, John Larson released his musical titled, "Rent." A reflective song within the musical, "Seasons Of Love" points out that one year contains 525600 minutes. Engagement with this newsletter may require a minute amount of minutes on your part, but the content to be encouraging and inspirational, may leave significant impact on the minutes of your active life.
A Personal Snippet
In my fourteen years of writing, three book titles are still available. Altogether titles are categorized as creative nonfiction. Two are anthologies, and the third is my autobiography. In addition, I have general fiction stories in random anthologies and at the website, https://www.spillwords.com/author/davidcrussell The stories at this link are encouraging, realistic, and some inspirational and can be sampled at one's leisure. In common, my writing features Characters who face real challenges tailored to them, reflecting life's realities.
My latest title, "Human Being Human Doing" is a self-anthology of six short stories; characterizations include people from known history: King David, the family of Moses, a Jewish pharisee, a panel for an international webinar, Mary Magdalene and a fictitious person facing Judgment Day.

As we become acquainted, have you had an experience that would encourage or inspire another that we can collectively celebrate? In a sentence or two, please state the occasion, and perhaps use your initials or a pseudonym for credit. Example, DCR is celebrating the start of a newsletter as he approaches age seventy-two. Till next month, all the best to you and yours,

Return To Blog Post
In looking over the views for past blogs, the numbers satisfy me even though they range from single digit to double-digit. I view us as a small group that gather on occasion to encourage, inspire, consider something most ignore.
Do let me know your thoughts via comments!
Until next visit, may the presence of HaShem guard your daily steps and walk.
