It would sound like this: yap, yap, yap, yap-yap!
Second verse, same as the first.
I might be in a slightly silly (maybe even giddy) mood today. I have a clear slate to write–no appointments or errands and lots of peace and quiet.
When I started out as a young writer, many moons ago, I had no idea I would (eventually) meet with this kind of success. I just wanted to earn a living, so I wouldn’t have to work in an office.
I’m not saying it was easy–it certainly wasn’t. There were many setbacks along the way, but as many or more wonderful experiences, like meeting and getting to know John and June Cash, thanks to my good friend Peggy Knight, living and traveling all over the world, and seeing one of my books, “The Last Chance Cafe”, made into a movie.
I’m also not saying I think I’ve ‘arrived’–we never do that, really. I want to write better and better books, to learn and grow and challenge myself. There will, if I’m so blessed, be more triumphs and more disappointments, too. To be full, a life needs both light and shadow, strange as that may seem.
And I have been gifted with both.
Guess my mood wasn’t so giddy after all.
Thank you, one and all, for being part of my life.
