Once upon a time …

How do legends become legends? What makes deeds great enough that they need to be shared across the land? Is it the actions that make the hero? Or is being a character of legend something we are born with? I suppose it pays to have a good advertising team. It’s all about spin.

I would love to share the tale of a legendary character here. I would love to give the exciting details of his journey, a journey like no other. Yes I would love to share such an exciting tale, but sadly I can only work with what I have. THIS particular story is just about lil ole me. Or more specifically, some recent adventures of mine.

“Who,” one might reasonably ask, “ARE you?”

I guess that might be a good place to start.

Everyone has a tale to tell. And each tale is unique to the teller, even if it may share much with another’s story. In the last few months, I have shared parts of my personal story with many different people, while learning bits and pieces of their own tales. All the snippets are blending together in a mosaic that to me display human life in all its complicated simplicity. Truth is often truly stranger than fiction.

I may still be wondering where this my adventure will take me, but it has become clear to me that wherever it goes, I won’t be going alone. A book was always part of the “plan”. The above quote might just be the first few sentences. I think I am now officially writing THREE books.

Just imagine if I not only manage to finish one, but actually get it PUBLISHED. Stranger things HAVE happened.

  1. YOU are the hero of your own story. You ARE a legendary character and have a story to tell. Do not ‘sadly’ tell us! Share your joy! You are on a great adventure and I personally look forward to all of your postings. No need to impress others, Steve. F*%k Them. Do what you are doing for YOU.
    Dont mean to preach, just passing along what works for me 😉

    Really hoping to see you at my house in August. I am extremely envious of the journey you are on.
    Whenever I travel to ‘wilderness’ lands, I always daydream of jumping on a horse with a sackful of beef jerky and riding off…

    • I may have been using a little dramatic license there haha. Thanks. I am still hoping to hookup with you guys, just not quite sure of the logistics yet. I am pretty much making things up as I go along these days. But not writing anything off yet!!
