Bucket List almost

  When I was young and quite idealistic, I envisioned being a writer.  I loved to read, I loved the words marching across the page.  The words created  images of people that were interesting, doing exciting things.  Exotic places came to life.  Imagined events became real.  Yep, that is what I wanted to do.
   By the time I entered college, reality dropped into visit.  I entered and won a few contests, yet no one chased me down handed me the dream.  I did not really have that gnawing push to go knocking on doors either.  The great American novel was not in my future.  Chasing news stories that I was not really interested in lost the fanciful appeal.  So that journalistic dream  bit the dust.
  Yet, over the weekend I had a little tinge of that old desire.

   In my email on Saturday was a post by Cathy Geier where she was sharing my review of her new book.  Click here for that post.   I had quite a giggle over it.  I find it fun and up-lifting to have others like what I say.  So I hunted down her blog where she shared the review and left a comment.  She replied that she added it to her blog because Amazon would pick up the latest post to add to her author's page.
   I am quite sure you can figure out what I did.  My fingers instantaneously typed in Amazon, and searched for her page.  More giggles and a little squeal because  there it was!   My blog entry posted on Amazon.....and I didn't have to write the great American novel after all.  Ok, I know it is not a real bucket list item, but at this age, I will take it as a nice Tinker Bell just flew over my head and scattered golden buckets of fairy dust on my world.  
Amazing, how little it takes to brighten my day! So, thanks, Cathy....that was fun.  I am off to pull out some fabric as I plan a landscape quilt.
Happy stitching.
