I am inspired by your article, Donnette. But then, still, most of us hesitate to take that step. I guess, since I am writing now (my passion, my dream), and still have my job, I have that satisfaction at least, that I can write something. It was again faith that helped me to start writing at the first place :-)
I hope to publish my poems some day as a book. Your article is a great reminder to so many of us to puruse our passion and do what we want to do.
Thanks so much.
