Why I’m a Writer

Mom just sent me this email — I have to remember sometimes that the world is way bigger than me.

I forgot to tell you that yesterday as I was headed out to go to the dentist….I stopped to pull back the garbage can and my neighbor was just getting home with her little boy.  She ran over to talk with me (I immediately told her that I was headed to a dentist appointment.) She ignored me and started telling me that she had a “thank you” note on her counter to give to me for the book that I gave the baby.  Then she proceeded to tell me this long story about how he had been sick and started having respiratory problems and had to have therapy.  While he was in therapy “Alphaoops” was the only book he wanted to read….everyday!  He loves the book.
Just wanted you to know.
