Liberty Dendronabout this book: I remember first mentioning my authorship intent to family 2006. Then I started writing—The Adventures of "Tony the Deer." A few years later, comments ranged from supportive to discouraging—but I wasn't deterred. Continuing to write, I wrote more stories.
Just speaking the words of my writing goal gave projects life – sprouting the seeds. Gradually I put a series of experiences in my life—some great and some not so great with professional, spiritual and personal accounts—to get me to this point. Responses and residue from the issues of family and friends gave me new insights for addressing the struggles of my journey. Participating in workshops and taking online college courses—validated my thoughts of writing books and alerted me that so many of us are struggling and looking for answers. The roller-coaster nature of the social, political and economic climate of this country pointed to a need for new ways to circumvent these troubled times. My life's missteps started to reveal instructive destinations…and another book evolved.
Through the years I continued writing and revisiting what I'd written, attending online writer's groups and taking more college courses. I tweaked my first manuscript, and showed it to my brother Percy; and he said, "He was proud of me."
Once I was led to and committed to writing, energies from everywhere cooperated—seems like phrases, memories and lessons abounded at every corner. My wife knew of my writing aspirations and I feel this creative force was her way of working with me to stir up my spirit. While out walking, ideas would flood my head as I looked at the sky or the landscape around me. I'd hurry back to my office and quickly capture the thoughts—adding fresh words to the manuscript on my computer.
Grab one of my books, drink a hot beverage; and settle in with one of my children books or fiction novels. Summer is fleeing and autumn is in the air!! The light of the sun and moon is noticeably slanting, leaves are more golden than brown here in Virginia. School has started, trees are changing colors, stores are selling sweaters in gorgeous autumn hues, and football games are being played, what an exciting time of year! Scorpio with its orange star Antares is slanting westward, and the moon seems to be almost merging with the sun. I can't wait for that first touch of winter in the air!! Everything about autumn is just wonderful!! The smell of apples, cinnamon, spiced pumpkin pies, wood fires burning, are so alluring! The setting sun is so colorful this time of the year. Fall is a magical time of year!
