Another year passed ever so slowly…and the yellow esperanzas echo the passage of time with full bloom. The esperanza bush is a tree now, caressing the tall young oak, as if reaching together for the blue skies. Esperanza, hope; my heart hopes for so much as we near the end of this year. Will the lovely blooms live through the winter? Will they finally reach the clouds that tease their fragrance? Will I be celebrating my first book? I hope so!
