"The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on." – Louis L’Amour

April 8, 2008

Finally, I have done it.  I have signed up, jumped on the train, and started my own blog.  My husband would be so proud, except that he is asleep on the couch.

While he was working on falling asleep during the newscast, I was lying there thinking about all of the things I could be doing since I was still awake.  So I picked up a book I have been putting off reading for school – Talent Is Never Enough, by John Maxwell.

I am typically a fan of Maxwell’s work, but this particularly book is packed with more stories and quips than practical information, so it has been a challenge to get through. Oddly enough, halfway through the book I find myself inspired to jump online and get moving on a big goal.  Congratulations, John Maxwell.

Louis L’Amour is credited with saying, “The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” Everyone knows that painters paint and writers write.  I suppose I have been waiting for someone else to turn on the water, and I have been standing by, pen in hand, ready to catch the flow of words.  Instead, I am going to put fingertips to keyboard and have faith that the words will come.

Thanks for joining me on the journey.
