Here goes nothing ……

Fear ……. I welcomed the challenge to dive into the Caribbean Sea and snorkel with sea turtles, sharks, jellyfish, and other sea creatures. With no hesitation I boarded a six seat plane with a bush pilot from Alaska whose runway was the flat grassy area behind his house to view the snowy peaks of Mt McKinley. The roller coasters on top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas are intimidating but I only felt excitement as I was strapped into the seat. Last week I was asked to join the Slice of Life writing challenge with my peers most of which I call friends and I had a mild panic attack and then the FEAR settled in……Can I do this ? Everyday ? Will I embarrass myself? What if I struggle? Am I a good enough writer? I guess there is only one way to find out……challenge accepted

Memories are something I treasure, and I want to capture them in writing here so I can keep them forever. Whether in the past or present, these are important to my heart.
