Stolen Words:  Thank You was written for Michelle Weber, Daily Post editor & facilitator of the July 2015 session of WordPress’ Blogging 101: Zero To Hero course, and for our program Happiness Engineers Chrissie Pollock and Alex Gustafson.  Words, stolen or otherwise, can’t thank you three enough for all the support and guidance you gave us over in The Commons, let alone the “likes” and words of encouragement and accomplishment.  Our blogs wouldn’t have evolved or continue to grow without your participation in them.  Thank you again.

Stolen Words are my compilations of lyrics used to make a new piece of prose of sorts.  The lyrics are “stolen” from the songs I hear while surfing my favourite channels on SiriusXM and  I hope you enjoy them – I have a blast writing them!
