Welcome to my A to Z Challenge theme reveal post. It is wonderful to participate for the sixth consecutive year. The A to Z Challenge involves posting every day in April, except Sundays. 1 April starts with the letter A, and son on until the letter Z. Didn’t really have took far for my theme but if I really had to give it a name, it would be “Collecting Smiles” as always, considering it is my mission in life. There will be posts around… Mindfulness Parenting Book reviews Personal development Some nostalgia Inspiring quotes Wednesday Wisdom Gratitude And anything else that catches my fancy, keeping in line with the alphabet for the day. In summary, it will be business as usual here. The only difference: I’ll post every day. Maybe even Sundays, because you know how writing is! Of course, I’ll try my best to keep up with the schedule but…

The A to Z Challenge is just around the corner I’d so love to do it I swear upon my honor This is my fifth year Laughing from A to Z How could I not be here And set my words free?

There you go! I actually wrote my A to Z Challenge theme reveal post today in a waiting room. Yes, there were websites – with spiders – and we enjoyed watching them go about their job! Now, the transcript of those handwritten notes: Little did I think I would be writing my A to Z Challenge 2016 Theme Reveal post, waiting at the passport office – waiting, in fact, to be harassed with nothing to show fo rit after several hours – of running around, in the sun and upstairs and downstairs, because you know, that’s how they roll! So while my son, whose passport renewal was the reason we were there, was busy composing poetry, I decided to “write”, really write my posts. But not before I had finished fretting over the two hours it had taken us to get there, and heaven knew how many more before we left.…

And so, the day of the Great A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal BlogFest dawns bright, clear, and rather warm where I live. On Feb 11, 2014 we announced the Theme Reveal BlogFest with a drum roll and a fabulous badge designed by my team mate Samantha Geary Jones aka WriterlySam and I am excited to see that 1413 (and counting) participants have signed up! (I co-hosted the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal with #TeamDamyanti mates  Anna Tan, Csenge Zalka, Guilie Castillo Oriard and Samantha! (Yes, the same Samantha who designed the gorgeous theme reveal badge!) with team-mates Jemima Pett and Mary Wallace actively supporting us!) I am participating in the April A to Z Challenge 2014 with two blogs this time – this one – Vidya Sury, Collecting Smiles and my health blog Your Medical Guide. On Vidya Sury, (you are here!) my theme is … variety. *Ducks!*…
