“I’d be unstoppable, if only I could get started.”

I once bought a poster with this statement on it for my father, not because of what it said, but because of the photo on it: a cute, little Shar Pei puppy — or, as I called it at the time, a “wrinkle puppy”.

You see, for as long as I can remember, my father had wrinkles on his forehead and I was fascinated by them. Whenever he raised his eyebrows, the skin would fold and the lines would become pronounced and I would look at him, fascinated. Sometimes I would trace his wrinkles with my fingers, and often I would compare him to a wrinkle puppy. He would just grin, perhaps a little bewildered as to why anyone would be fascinated with his forehead.

So when I saw that poster, I knew I had to buy it for him. It didn’t matter that it was pink. It didn’t matter that he was neither a collector of posters nor of puppy chachkies. All that mattered was that it was our thing, our habit, our joke. And he proudly displayed it … in the garage.

Writing this blog has been a goal of mine for a very long time, but I have put it off for a myriad of reasons. Today, however, I’m embracing the saying on that poster and, now that I’ve started, I hope to be unstoppable.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web
    will be a lot more useful than ever before.
