Iíve got it all, yíall.

Iíve got the good job, the big house, the loving family (cough, cough), an office, a Prius in the garage, and a dormant case of herpes.

Itís a tad later in my life than I would have liked it to be. I was supposed to have the Great American Novel written by now. I should at least be work-shopping the manuscript.

I let some time slip by. I drove kids to piano lessons and scout meetings. I cleaned the basement a couple dozen times. I shoveled the walks and hung shelves.

The writing muscle atrophies.
