When I copied my 149 words and went to the site, I was disappointed to learn the contest is only open to U.S. Citizens.
Anyway, I decided to throw my entry up here.
At three years old, I caught fireflies in Trinidad. At four, I drew my first horse in Thunder Bay.
At seven, I watched whales frolic in Chaleur Bay from the top of a snow bank. When I was ten, Kenny and I protested the impending demise of a weeping willow in Pierrefonds by climbing into its branches and refusing to come down.
At sixteen, I spent a year at an international school in Mallorca and learned that I wasn’t so special, yet I was unique. At seventeen, I rode a Berber mare in Algeria. She took the bit and led me on a wild ride before depositing me on my feet with my arms still wrapped around her neck.
At forty-seven, I wrote my first novel. At fifty-two, I’m still painting, writing, learning... and married.
