‘I have a dream’
They were the famous words that Martin Luther King uttered that changed the face of not just one nation but many. But don’t we all have dreams? Sure, they may not be as major and impact so many lives as his did, but are they any less important?
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” I can remember the day my wife asked me that question.
It was ten years ago, and I was forty five at the time. It was half in jest, but only half!
We’d been here in NZ about seven years at the time and I’d been through a few jobs ‘trying to find the right fit’ but none of them seemed to be right.Mid life crisis? I don’t think so really.
It was more that I just don’t fit doing office or factory work, too much stress FOR THE BOSS! Yep, you read it right. I caused too much stress for them, it’s what you get with ‘square pegs in round holes’. I’d always been used to working with some degree of ‘autonomy’ so having to do things someone else’s way just didn’t work!
So what did I want to be ‘When I grew up?’
I’ve always loved “spinning a good yarn” and thought it would be great to do something with that. The desire to be a writer was beginning.
That’s why I recently took the huge ‘leap into the dark’ as it were and began writing my first Novel, actually it’s published on Amazon and Kindle now under the title ‘Sting of the Scorpion”
