I must write. I no longer have a choice. I’ve had the passion for decades, but have lacked the self-confidence and necessary discipline. Meanwhile as I play out the third act of my life I find my mind overflowing with things I want to say, stories I want to tell. I’m not getting any younger.
I’m hardly pessimistic or fatalistic, on the contrary, I’m very positive and optimistic. I am however pragmatic and realistic and know that I can no longer procrastinate. It’s time to act.
Actually, I suppose for my endeavors a Pulitzer Prize should be my goal. But, the powers that be over at the House of Pulitzer never televise an awards ceremony, much less interview people on the Tapiz Rouge, so there doesn’t seem to be much point.
Anyway, I’d like to thank my husband for his endless tolerance and ability to entertain my whims and myriad of career desires. I’d also like to thank the Kardashians who have so deeply inspired me to seek fame and fortune, regardless of the fact that I may have absolutely nothing valid or of value to bring to the table. I admit that I’ve never watched their reality show(s) but I certainly know who they are and what they look like, that’s high enough aspiration for the likes of me.
But, most of all I’d like to thank Frank Strona for taking the time from his extremely busy life, and having the patience to show me how to set this up and use WordPress. I’m sure my husband would like to thank Frank also for a well deserved break.
