i am a writer.

one of the most wonderful moments happened to me yesterday. i attended the first screening of the santa cruz surf film festival. i was given tickets to cover the festival for collective lifestyle. i had been corresponding with the the head of the film fest through email. she also happened to be the ticket taker at the movie. when she saw my name she said “oh, you’re the writer.” i will remember that feeling forever. at first, i almost went into a long winded explanation that i just write on the side, i’m just starting out, i don’t get paid… but, then i just went with it because, yes, i am a writer. i write. i don’t know if it’s any good. i don’t make a living out of it. but, i am a writer. it’s one of the many things that i am. it’s a stitch in the fabric of my being. but, it did take an outsider to call me a writer to let myself start believing it, too.

    I wish I could have seen your face in real time, but I pictured you in the moment.
