My book is I, hopefully at my best and worst.  The real boring stuff is somewhere in the middle.  

For nearly a year now, I have been focusing on being awake --- seeing all the wonderful (and horrible) from this little corner of the world I live in.

I have attempted to share my "awakeness" with others so together we can savor every micro-second of our lives amidst its thrills and pains, ups and downs, the fat and thin, the noise and the silence.

I remember one day my book was rejected by a small printer.  But yet the publisher was kind enough to send me a hand-written page-long letter of what I could do to get the book from my heart published.

So in my disappointment I found hope because someone took a few minutes to say some good things, to open new vistas and develop a rapport.

Maybe this book will never be anything more than an heirloom to hand down to my family.  But it is a journey in hope and awareness that brought me to a new life.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
