Marks on my path

"No love, no friendship can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever." Mauria Francois

It always amazes me how the tapestries of our lives are woven and how you can meet a person and your whole life is instantly changed forever and you can't imagine not having met this person. Your life is forever changed.

We all splash colors or patterns on the canvasses of those we meet. It is as intricate as it is fascinating.

As an author, I am always aware of the moment I meet someone who will add depth to this character or that story. (That probably sounds odd, but I do notice their impact on my personal life as well, though those lessons some times take me longer to comprehend). Seeing the literary need the person fills is usually pretty immediate...and it puts my Master's Thesis to work by using writing to realize the real-life lesson being presented.
