I think I mentioned on Day One of this Ultimate Blog Challenge that I’m not the most enlightened kid on the block.
From the time I was about six, I had my mind set on becoming a Hard Bitten Journalist. A “just the facts,” “no nonsense,” “heart of the matter” chronicler of the happenings in my little corner of the world.
WHO KNEW that I’d not only get to write about city governments and local events thanks to my very first editor, Lauren McLaughlin, who is now an author and spiritual advisor, but also would find myself an advocate for the arts, and an artist of sorts in my own right?
And who could guess that I’d count among my friends a highly talented illustrator, Boo Ehrsam, who would create the visual likeness of Sal, my fictional alter ego and star of my series of children’s story-poems?
Who could imagine that I’d find a friend in Velva Lee Heraty, a Jungian psychologist, who’d dub herself “Dream Momma,” and write a book, “The Dream Belongs to the Dreamer,” that’s now making the national rounds?
Well, it’s true, and this Thursday (October 9), I’m meeting a few of my friends at a book talk and signing at St. Petersburg’s Museum of Fine Arts to celebrate her accomplishment.
If you’re in St. Petersburg this Thursday between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., I hope you’ll join us!
