Doctor Heal Thyself . . .

I’ve often heard this quote and wondered how a doctor who’s missing an arm could apply a cast to a broken leg. But I suppose that’s not really the point of the quote now is it. Ever since I was in kindergarten (what a strange word) and the teacher published one of my “poems” in a k-6 book for the city I have wanted to be a writer. And the more I think about that I’m not sure that it’s true. I think the correct term would be story teller because I find it hard to put things to paper but telling a story seems simplier. So in an effort to put more things on paper I’m going to force myself to start blogging even though I was blogging before it was cool. You just have to know where to look to find the blogs. We shall see what happens with this grand experiment.
