Since the time I was 6 years old I have wanted to be a writer. My lifelong dream has been to be a published author. I had a very surprising realization. My dream has come true. I never aspired to have a #1 best seller. I have simply wanted to write and have my writing read. I may not be a “published author” in the traditional sense of being able to buy my writings off a book shelf. Because of the support of my Monday emails the opportunity to publish those emails via posts to my blog have been made possible. You, my friends, have given me my wish. You, my readers, have made me an author. I thank you. I thank you for giving me an audience. I thank you for choosing my words “off the shelf”, for picking up my “book” and opening its pages. Mydesire has been given and you have given it to me.
