. A STORY NEAR & DEER When I finished writing my first book in 2010, I wanted to do something symbolic to commemorate the milestone A tattoo Yeah That was it But what to do? . I spent a long time thinking about it And the fact it had taken me decades to get to that place A late bloomer That’s me I thought about how I’d spent so many years as a kid Tapping out bad horse stories on that old IBM Selectric And devouring books in my room There was one book in particular Bambi Not the cheesy Walt Disney version, but the 1929 novel by Felix Salten— . A fat, wordy, gentle, heartbreaking book I must have read it fourteen times as a kid, and it brought me to tears every time It was the book that made me want to be a writer I began asking around for it in used bookstores Not many had heard of it, but I decided that if it was meant to show up, it would And then, two days after I learned my book was going to be published, I found myself in @russellbooksvictoria I asked a young clerk about the novel She shrugged Never heard of it, she said Another clerk walked by Hey John, she said, have you ever heard of Felix Salten’s, Bambi? . John froze And held up a book in his hand I don’t know why I’m even holding this, he said. I just found it the bottom of a dusty box in the staffroom Yes. You guessed right It was “my” book And the same rare hardcover edition I’d had as a kid Filled with the intricate black & white illustrations I remembered so well Ten dollars later, the book was mine Finding it this way, felt like a sign I was on the right path And I also knew exactly what to do for my tattoo *********************************** . (Still gives me chills every time I think about this story. Serendipity. It’s alive and well) . . . . . . . . . .
