One of my favorite quotes is from Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist:
"It is the possibility of having a dream come true
that makes life interesting."So, cheers to Matt Clair, who is following his heart and going after his dream of becoming a writer. He's starting a blog called 365, in which he'll write a 365-word story every day for a year.
Like a proud parent (or older sister), I look at my old Dunster students and feel so lucky to have spent time with such incredible people. Thanks for sharing your lives with me.
And in case you need a little inspiration to pursue your dream, here's an old piece by Nicholas Kristof. (Thanks, Yeimy, for the reminder!)
