Entry for October 26, 2007 No. 2

Recently I met a writer from out East who was an amazing, soulful talent. This artist could touch the essence of any man or woman with her prose and poems. For now, she is unpublished, but I hope she chases her dreams. She is not yet retired and has a busy schedule. My guess is that the best writers in history go to their graves unpublished. Either they never pursued publication or they were simply “undiscovered.” Rejection slips from publishers fuel the flames that consume the spirits of many aspiring writers. Early on, I made rejection slips a badge of honor. You cannot fly until you try. It is time for me to add more to the collection.

Retirement should be the time in life for everyone to “put up or shut up” about all of the dreams that were put off in anticipation of someday finding the time to pursue them. Want to be a writer? Write. Want to be a painter? Paint. Grab a big chunk of rock and start hammering out the sculpture that you have had visions of for your entire life.

Thanks again for the visit.
