My book “The First Half” will be serialized here on my blog one chapter at a time throughout my life. It will reflect on the first half of my life, my search of an identity, and the journeys of a wandering soul. In search of who knows what. I’ve always envisioned myself writing a book some day, but I never knew what it would be about. I thought once I get into my 40’s, I would have a better idea. Then one day, I was sitting outside a cafe on a beautiful Uruguayan summer night and I got the inspiration to start writing my book now. I decided I had enough stories and things to share to make a great first few chapters. And you never know, I may never make it to see my 40’s. This book is called “The First Half” and from the first chapter you will know exactly why. I am not writing this book in hopes of it becoming a NY times bestseller or appear on Oprah. I’m writing it so that people I know can get to know me a little better. So other people who have similar dreams, struggling with similar things will know that they are not alone. That dreams do come true. Though life isn’t always a fairytale. Maybe I just love writing and just want another excuse to write. Regardless, whoever reads this book will know my story. Everybody has a unique story. This one is mine.
