No blog today. I am too overwhelmed by the response to my posting, Moments that Changed Me and My Career, last Friday. Within 24 hours I had over 100 emojis on Face Book with 31 comments--a lot for my blog. That may be the best response I have ever had. I don’t know why. Perhaps it was the insightful thoughts. Maybe it was my creative writing. I fear it may have been my picture as a cadet some 63+ years ago.
My writing group meets weekly every Tuesday. Next Tuesday falls on my 75th birthday. I challenged my writing Group to write something—anything--to share during the meeting, as a birthday gift for me. One member of the group challenged me to write something as well. She said to write about what impacted my career (22 years in the Army). That’s what I wrote about and posted. I wasn’t prepared for the response. So far, Monday at noon, I have received 123 emojis and 33 comments. Wow. I don’t know how many people read the post without leaving an emoji or comment. --Monte
