IN THE YEAR 2012 contest

Written by: Victoria Anderson-Throop


Hungry reader, wild sea lover, wordsmith, listener of dreams and lies

Daughter of beloved parents –strong-- longingly and sorely missed

Left Alaska, empty nester, wrote a book and growled through heat of Greece and Crete

Heartbreak through a broken friendship--in a whim went on to Kenya to greet a student      cyber found

Call from Israel , shall I go there? Someone needs my wily ways.

Tangoed madly with malaria , celebrating joys of life

Still Alaskan, North Sea calls me, taunts me worlds and seas away

Victoria, still dancing with life's passions
