|Me, late 70s, maybe early 80's.|
|Me and my bro.|
I had two dreams growing up. The first dream was to be the first female short stop for the New York Mets. Yes, I was a huge fan of the 86' Mets -- my brother and I would walk to Shea Stadium to watch the Mets play. I was determined to be the first female short stop, so I played baseball with my brother and his friends for most of grade school. I was pretty damn good, and I set my goals to, one day, play at Shea Stadium.
Obviously, that dream didn't come true, and I lost all interest in following the Mets as soon as I graduated college and started working. I did, however, continue playing sports. It's just in my blood.
My second dream was to "write books", and here I am. Fantasy, science fiction, romance, children's stories, poetry... I write as my muse dictates. One thing I've learned is that constant writing is hard work, and it takes a lot of perseverance. Ask any writer and they will tell you it's damn hard. But, no good thing in life comes easy.
I'm all over social media, so stop by and say "Hi!", tell me all about your childhood dreams, or share a kids joke. Here's one my son told me in 2nd grade:
