What Prompted the Writing of ‘I Found…’
I awoke about 2:00 a.m. from a dream. Not a bad dream by any means, but it woke me. Perhaps it was the reality of it, or the excitement of the idea. So I got up and went to my office. I had to write something down before I went back to bed, and, perhaps, forget the idea of my dream.
My dream? I had written a book…even the title
The dream was of people finding things that in some way touched them, touched their heart, their spirit, their belief in others, in things. Maybe it was a song, a poem, that favorite dress, just happenings that may seem so commonplace and yet, so very significant in their life.
So I asked my family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and even casual acquaintances if they ‘Found’ something in their lives that touched them in some way.
I didn’t realize how significant those two simple words – I Found – played such an important part in so many people’s lives.
They sent their brief story, usually only a few lines, and I put their five lines or so in the depths of my mind and wrote their story. Now, instead of their telling but a few during their lifetime, hopefully, their story can be read by…by…who knows how many?
