I smiled and shook my head.
Me? "Uncle that's pretty farfetched. When would I find the time?" I was 26 years and deeply engrossed in my psychiatric studies at Teacher's College. I questioned, why would a people watcher and avid analyzer of behavior find the time or even care?
Writing words are for people who want to find time
in the corners of their minds: To dream in front of a bookstores
with their book on window display and a six figure book deal churning around
Fast forward a few decades later after many conferences and twists and turns I discovered my path...
For me writing has been about changing myself as well as others by uplifting ancestral voices lost along the way, voices that need to be heard.
Writing is caring enough to Think BIG; to link another's mind to yours, to take risks, explore dreams, turn over memories .
Writing is about healing myself as well as others.
Would I like to make money? To say that money doesn't enter into my mind
would be a lie and aren't writers supposed to tell the truth? : -)
