A Reminder

I have wanted to “make books” since around the sixth grade, and I published my first book when I was in my late thirties. My point is that the time in between was not wasted – submarine service, marriage, college, bringing up three kids, starting a school for them, and so forth.

Sometimes we get caught up in a mission and lose the forest for the trees.

Thank you , Mr. Wilson.

Keep writing, at life’s pace,
KJ
