Your words inspire me. On Tuesday, I asked you to use only five words to describe yourselves. Your descriptions blew me away. I realized that as a writer, I am part of all of you. Your words nudged me to think and dream more. Let me share a few of your descriptions about yourselves. Here goes:
I am doing my best.
My spirit gets distracted easily.
With love, they grow perfectly.
I'm traveling barefoot through life.
I believe I can fly.
Wishful thinking makes things happen.
After I read your descriptions, I visited your blogs and headed straight for your interests. I wanted to know more about you. I wanted to know why we are so alike and how we might be different.
I'd like to comment on each and every blog that I read, but one in particular made me want to write a best selling children's book. That person listed "blowing dandelions" and "watching bubbles" in her bouquet of interests.
I wanted to walk barefoot through her dandelions (that I'm sure grow perfect with love). I wanted to fly through her bubbles. Since my spirit gets distracted easily, I won't sit down to write that book tonight, but I know that wishful thinking makes things happen.
I love language. I play with words. I am dazzled by how we are alike and how we are different. Blowing dandelions. Watching bubbles. What do they make you think about? What do they make your kids think about? Ask them! Please share.
