"That full-up feeling"--Looking Forward

Just thinking of growing fat
Our senses go reeling;
One moment of knowing that
Full-up feeling!
--Lionel Bart "Food, Glorious Food" from the musical Oliver!

I've been experiencing "that full up feeling" quite a bit recently, but mostly that my plate is quite full. I'm looking into the new year with a mix of trepidation and excitement. I have tons of ideas for the future of Southern Spirit Guide. A complete website may be in the works that would include moving to a new address away from Blogger as well as an expansion of the blog and a directory of information on haunted locations throughout the South. In this case, the blog would recount my own adventures as I delve further into the subject as well as documenting some of my research.

I've hinted that a book is in the works. It's still very much in the preliminary stages, but it will likely utilize some of what I've already posted, though in a different format. The website would also offer a platform for advertising that.

Additionally, I really want to travel more and explore more of these locations that I've, so far, been unable to see due to financial concerns. Though, now that my financial situation looks less bleak, my current employer has difficulties with the concept of work/life balance.

In the new year I have plans to observe an investigation with a noted paranormal group and some friends and I have discussed the possibility of creating our own team of investigators. This will add a new twist to my writing and research.

I would like to thank all of my readers out there who have supported me. In addition, I'd like to thank those bloggers and writers out there who have supported my efforts this year and who continue to inspire me with their work.

To all of you, I wish peace, joy and prosperity in the coming year!
