Johnny Ray preparing to celebrate. Just like writing, the best way to make a decision is to sample all life has to offer.

If you don't understand what the local beers taste like, then do the most sensible thing -- try them all. I want to take a minute and wish everyone a great new year and hope you make the world brighter by just being a part of it. Now it is your time to sample what the world has to offer, to live life to the fullest.

Johnny Ray with his granddaughters
It is nice to spend some time with my granddaughters for Christmas. They are a handful.

The Johnny Ray family hopes all have a great holiday season.

It is time to wrap up the year and relax for a while. It has been a great year and I've learned so much from my friends. Writing has become such a way of life with me. Yes, I'd write if no one read my work but me. Hopefully, others will like it and it will give them some enjoyment in reading it.

I have several people reading partials and fulls now and know that soon the next step in this journey will happen. It is amazing how much there is to learn in this business. I remember in my previous business how long it took to become good at it and know it will be the same here. So, for all of those in the same boat as I am, remember 2010 will be a magical year full of great things. I wish everyone a great holiday season and next year.
