Back before I sold my soul to the world of advertising, I aspired to be a real writer. While I was laboring away on short stories and reading small-print literary journals, I came across a short story by a new writer names Rick Bass.

After I found figured out that “real writer” means “real poor” for most people who make their living with a pen, I moved on to commercial work. But I always kept up with Rick’s work, and I’ve always admired it. This short piece from the recent issue of Garden & Gun magazine is the reason why. It’s about dogs, a dream, and a whole lot more. It’s worth checking out and I hope you enjoy it.

    Going full-time like Rick did is a leap of faith. There are times in your life when the risk is minimal, times when it is outright foolish (or selfish), and times when you really have nothing to lose. We’re fortunate it worked out for Rick and a few others. If I came home with 2 more dogs I’d probably find myself in the nothing to lose category.

    I like what I’ve seen at Garden & Gun. They certainly have attracted some marquis contributors.

    Yeah – I’m glad Rick did it. I love reading his stuff.

    Thanks for the response, and nice blog.
