A Thankful Farewell to 2016: Let the Door Hit You . . . Twice

The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

ย Another year passes
This one horrible
To many
Nothing gone right
So much gone wrong
Happy to put the months behind
To nurture hope
A new year
Means fresh chances
And adventures
That may go in our favor

Happy New Year!

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  9. I’ll consider 2017 a success if we avoid perishing in a nuclear armageddon. Since I enter it with such low expectations, I hope to be pleasantly surprised by it. Indeed, I’ll up the ante and wish that 2017 brings us nothing but joy!
