I have been blessed with many talents over the years that I have not seen through. Talents that I regret not having developed further…whether it was playing the french horn, playing the piano, illustrating, painting, or writing, in each case I was very good at doing them. But in each case I would “lose interest” or not want to work hard to develop or improve them.
Ahhh the wisdom of age. And since I can’t go back and change the past, I can move forward. I can change my outlook on the future.
I’m undertaking writing a book…a fiction novel. And I intend on finishing it. We all have been blessed with dreams and imaginations. We should pursue them. Work for them. Move to achieve them.
I told my wife when the first of our three angel children came to us that I wanted to write & illustrate a children’s book. I still intend to. And who knows, maybe as I write this novel I will be inspired to complete that dream as well.
I have undertaken this task and I will see it through. If for no other reason than to prove to myself I can.
But I look forward to sharing my talents with any and all. If what I do inspires others, like so many of you (you know who you are) have done for me, then I will have accomplished something.
