Writing and a BBQ

I just ended up looking at some old entries that I wrote and still find myself somewhat impressed by my writing. I really wish I had people who pressured me to keep writing instead of leaving for other opportunities. While the Air Force helped me get a degree I probably wouldn’t have been able to pay for, I wonder how my life would be if I had focused on writing instead. Alas, in the immortal words of David Bowie, “what’s done is done!” At least I’m not naive enough to think that the chance to be an author are beyond my grasp. (In fact, the average age for people to publish their first book is in their 40s. Or so I heard at a seminar. I couldn’t find a reference.) Just need to keep my head up and keep moving forward.

Today was a pretty good day. Went to a BBQ at the beach in Santa Cruz and I met some fun and interesting people. Almost all of them were overseas visitors. I had a really good time and I’m really glad I was able to make it. I do wonder if I’ll ever get rid of all this sand though. 🙂 Keeps showing up in the strangest places. Yikes.

Off to shower and go to bed. A fun day of work awaits!
