I’m not big on taking pictures. Don’t get me wrong I love photography, I’ve just never been great at it. Recently however I came across an old post by Jackie Smith where she discussed things she is thankful for in life. This got me thinking what experiences I am grateful for. Thus, with my limited collection of photographs, I decided to explore them.
I visited India!
I saw Blue Oyster Cult in concert.
I rode a mechanical bull.
I became an author and poet. Fellow writer Susie Clevenger took this photo of my book.
I got my teaching license. The kids drew me on the whiteboard too!
And I got to wear his hat.
I received some awards for my poetry.
I went to Dallas for another book signing in 2014.
I handed balloons out with my favorite people.
And I saw the Mighty Mississippi.
Plus, I wrote this poem today:
If I live or die a thousand years from now
I want the dust to settle by a stone that reads:
The magic never left my bones.
