When Your Day Doesn’t Go As Planned

My alarm didn’t go off because I forgot to set it last night. So I missed my writing time in the morning. No worries, I’ll write before I go to bed. Sometimes the routine gets tossed into the wastebasket.

I made some time before bed to do a tiny bit of writing. It wasn’t much but I can sleep knowing I followed through. I did want to mention that I had one of the coolest conversations ever. So, if you didn’t know, I’m the host of a public radio show called Sundial on WLRN in Miami. And today I interviewed author Kwame Alexander. He made a name for himself with the book Crossover. His new book is the prequel, Rebound. Nothing inspires me more than to learn from the authors that have come before me. I especially love to be reminded that they started like you and me, just ordinary folks with a dream.

Oh wait, I mentioned something about a dream and then didn’t. So I have a lot of dreams about water. In my dream last night I was walking across this ledge overlooking a beautiful but dark lake. I reached the end and realized I couldn’t cross without jumping in. Not wanting to get wet I turned back but by now the water was rising and now I was wading through it. I panicked and raced back to the place I started and climbed out. Why was I afraid of getting into the water?

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
