Now I feel pressure

I feel like a newly elected Congressman getting a "shout out" on the Senate floor from Ted Kennedy.
( I know he is.)
I feel like a part time wedding singer feeling the love from Beyonce, at the MTV music awards.
Imagine the Pope announcing to the crowd in St Peters Square, while pointing at the newly ordained Priest, "You gotta go hear this Priests sermon."
Imagine Bob Dylan walking up to a young guitar player after his set at the local pub, and saying, "You sound pretty good kid."
When Johnnie Carson would invite the first time comedian to come over and sit down, after his set, his career would instantly be on the rise.
Imagine having a story written about you, on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.
I can.
Beth just gave me a front page shout out, and my readership doubled in one day.
The power that woman has is scary.

Oh a little pressure is always good. Especially for a writer. Just had to check you out. She gave you such high praise. So far, I am not disappointed!

Hi there Mark, just read Beth's post about you and promised to check this beer drinking happy dude out. So here I am. And you have a way of writing that makes me laugh. So you are a happy chap.

And yea you're right about Beth, she's great, wonderful, powerful and so much more all at the same time. Luv her too. Still learning lots from her way of taking pics. And make ordinary things look special.

I'll stop by more to read your stories and look at the mistery you revealed from you Canon.
See you around, Dagmar
