Not a Destination

Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome ~ Arthur Ashe

Was last week a full moon week or what? Even worse, it was a blue moon!  No, the moon wasn't blue in color (on Wednesday night it was a eery reddish orange from my view in the Midwest).

It was a seasonal blue moon, but a crazy time none the less. Work was crazy busy and just plain crazy this week. I had a horrible personal schedule in the mornings this week and people's moods were just plain nuts. 

But the good thing about the week was finding a new plot point for a future work. Would you read a story about someone who messed up in one blue moon and then worked at fixing everything that climaxes at the next? 


Is it possible for two Civil War veterans to find their place in the world on the Kansas Prairie?
When the War Between the States ended in 1865 many Americans emerged from the turmoil energized by their possibilities for the future. Frank Greerson and Gregory Young were no different. After battling southern rebels and preserving the Union, the two men set out to battle the Kansas Prairie and build a life together. Frank yearned for his own farm, away from his family—even at the risk of alienating them. Gregory, an only child, returned home to claim his inheritance to help finance their adventure out west.

Between the difficult work of establishing a farm on the unforgiving Kansas prairie, and the additional obstacles provided by the weather, Native Americans and wild animals, will their love and loyalty be enough to sustain them through the hardships?
