There once was a time, not so long ago, when I had a great desire to become an archeologist.
Of course, I didn’t pursue this path, but sometimes I wonder where I would be now if I did. I’ve always had a passion for history, especially ancient history, and I’m easily drawn in to the documentaries on ancient cultures on the History Channel or Discovery Channel (or I was…I don’t even have cable any more and I miss those shows dearly). I think history has been as much of a passion of mine as writing, and it’s probably the main reason why I write historical fiction.
Another dream of mine is the desire to travel. I would love to go to different places all over the world, or even the country for that matter. Of course, being a world traveller takes a great deal of money, which I don’t have, and my hubby doesn’t seem to share the same passion for it that I do. He has shared the desire to go to Japan someday, but honestly I doubt that will happen anytime in the next ten years, especially if kids come into the picture (which I can say now, is not a desire I have in life 😛 I think the mother gene is recessive in me or at least not as strong as it is in many women).
It’s interesting how life can take you down paths that you never expected or planned for yourself.
I’m still young though, so there’s a lot left to do in life (assuming I’m supposed to live to old age). Perhaps I’ll become a novelist like I’ve dreamed about for so many years. Who knows what all will change in the coming years and where I’ll be.
Anyway, my question is this: are there any dreams of yours that are unfulfilled?
