The Written Word

I am not a writer, or a singer, or songwriter...but I love the written word. (hence, the new tattoo quote on my wrists). I never found my niche in life, I don't think it is too late, just I have not found it yet. I do know I am really a good wife. I have a knack for it. I love to cook and clean and bake for my hubby, I love to make him laugh when he comes home from working hard all day. I am "the good wife". I wake up happy everyday and shower him with kisses and hugs. It makes life so much easier, it takes less effort to love than fight and the results are way more fun!
So, back to the written word, I just finished reading Patti Smith's book "Just Kids", wow, it was one of those books you cannot put down, I devoured it! It is about her younger days spent with Robert Mapplethorpe. Read it today!
I am off to find a new book to read today, I love biographies so I may go for another rock star one!
I love Stephen King, but only the old, old stuff, his new stuff got to funky to follow. He is the one that wrote "Get busy living or get busy dying" It is in his story " The Shawshank Redemption" which is one of my all time favorites they made into a movie!  His other stories became really great movies too, The Green mile, Christine, Misery, so many more.
But this one always stuck with me, and now I know why:

Great quote...great movie...great writer (well, up until he got hit by that car). Love this post - and you really should let Charlie shower himself in the morning! :-) XOXO

I'm with you! Wish Ihad more time to read and cook and do all that fun stuff. Keep up the good work, my friend. You are already living in your niche, you just haven't recognized it yet!
