The First Entry - A Secret Desire to be a Writer 

Chantilly, France

The fact of the matter is, I've been writing ever since I was a teenager. I've just kept almost all of it to myself. And thank goodness for that as most of it was pretty dull stuff. I still have a stack of notebooks on my shelf which were spared from being thrown into the trash. I haven't gone through any of them in a while, but maybe one of these days I'll have a look to see if there are any ideas worth reviving.

Despite my dissatisfaction with the stuff I've written to date, I still hold out hope of redemption. After all, people can change for the better as they get older. Over the course of the years, one learns what can be interesting to others and what should be kept somewhere out of sight.

Writing offers the promise of reaching out to others, of sharing ideas. It's a means of expression. A way of communicating thoughts and ideas which can't be communicated in day-to-day living with the individuals with whom one normally interacts. It can add a whole new dimension to one's life.

So there it is. I'm looking for a new dimension. After 40 something years, the first dreams have been realized and its time to go after some new ones (or come back to some old ones which never quite came to life).

So with my keyboard as a walking stick, I set out on this new adventure of self discovery.

Bon voyage!
