Dreams....

 
 
Soon it'll be that time of year again, when we all make resolutions,set goals and try to obtain them.  I did that last year and while I did make an attempt, I never finished it.
 
I always dreamed, when I was younger of writing.  I know you all are always saying I should but, I believe Multiply is as far as my writing will go. LOL
 
I did, at the beginning of the year, do some research, write some basics, for a story.  I played around with it for a couple of months but, for many reasons, time was an issue, I just let it go.
 
I did kick around the idea of trying to finish the story I began on "Picture to Words".  (part one, part two).  Again, time and other things got in the way.
 
Of all the things I've written or attempted to write, "On The Wings Of A Dragon"  is probably the one that means the most to me.  Although, there was one, "Curtain Of Dreams", that I wish I still had.  It's buried in my dead computer.  I never keep the things I write.  It's all just here or thrown away but, this one haunts me still.
 
  But dreams do come true.   Sheila, aka Mavis,  is a perfect example of that.  She has just had her first book of poetry published.  "Quite Reflections".   Here, she shares her thoughts, dreams and the love she has for others.
 
I have always enjoyed her writings.  So you all, who have a love of poetry, check her out.  I will be purchasing an autographed copy of my own.
 
To Sheila"
 
I'm so happy for you.  Your dream is realized.  You are a true inspiration.
 
 
PS...Linda Beth, you will be happy to know, when I spell checked this, there wasn't one misspelled word. LMAO
 
Y'all take care.

  3. I DO think you should write - I also think you should publish a collection of your photographs with your own words/thoughts/poetry to accompany them. Now THAT would really be something! And it would be something all of us who know & love you would stand in line to buy! (I'll be first for my autographed copy!) xo

    That's what this business will do, if you get in a position of responsibility.

  22. I do miss the photo lab. I loved that job. And, I think I had more time for me when I worked both jobs. Hopefully things will settle.

    ReplyDelete
  23. You did!!
    Things will settle...it seems to be taking longer than I thought for that, but I believe the economy has something to do with that.
    After the election, I'm hoping a lot of things will simmer down.

  42. Hey Linda,
    Writing is easy. It was Hemingway, wasn't it, who said "all you have to do is sit in front of the typewriter and bleed?"
    Be good.
