Did you think that you’d ever write a book? Become a published author? Go to the moon and back again?
Well I was certain that I’d go to the moon. At the age of nine, I knew that I would be leaving my footprints there in the soft dusty soil. I would bound about in the low gravity doing high flying acrobatics until my grandmother announced it was lunchtime. Back to Earth…
We all have handicaps. Some of us can’t spell, some can’t rhyme and even some don’t seem to know a comma from a semicolon. On a good day, I’m lucky to find my feet and hope that no essential parts have dropped off my body. When you have all of your fingers and toes—-even if they don’t work—-life is relatively good. Staring at the keyboard never wrote anything…
Never did I ever consider myself a writer. However, I have always liked to tell stories. One day it just happened—I put words on paper and opened my heart. A book was born, half insanity and half passion. Not everything needs to make sense.

I always thought I would write a book, but I never thought I would go to the moon. My mother and I almost got arrested photographing the moon rock at my 10th birthday party museum trip…Random, I know.
Great story about the photo! I was a space case lol
I always thought I’d be a volcanologist. I had minor flights of fancy about being an archaeologist in Egypt or maybe a veterinarian, but really, hiking and studying the alien landscape of a volcano was more up my alley.
Turns out I’m much better at writing. 😉
well…I might have been a really great astro nut
Probably! You’re at LEAST half right. 😉
Really liked this Patrick. As for handicaps…whatever! That’s what an editor is there for! 😛
thank you! And yes editors help!
Funny, when I was 9 I wanted to be an astronaut too. Now I find myself as a full time mother. Not really what I imagined but I am realizing that through participating and watching my children cultivate their own sense of creativity , as well as me cultivating my own, we can all soar to heaven’s heights and back, unhindered by the need for rocket ships or ginormous amounts of fuel. All that is needed is a healthy dose of passion and curiosity. 🙂
you nailed it!
Congratulations Patrick! I always wanted to write a book and now I am. Slow going, mind you, but, eventually, it will be finished. Wish you much success. 🙂
Debbie, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! http://wp.me/p36JSE-9u
As a child I thought I would become either Keats or Shelley, LOL, I don’t know how I changed my track. I am now back on it; not poems though. I guess your true calling always calls you back, from wherever you are.
Tomorrow the moon!
I always wanted a ranch of flying horses! I did get my pilot’s license at an early age and did aerobatics for awhile,but is just isn’t the same.
I love flying horses, but real horses are great too 🙂
