Well, that escalated quickly.

Cory and I were watching an episode of Star Trek: TNG and Captain Picard said “Make now the most important time.” Cory took that as a variation of “Don’t leave tomorrow what you can do today,” but I’ve been thinking about it in a different way. More that now IS the most important time, and now is the moment I’m meant to live, and is the best time for me to exist.
I’ve known people that felt they were born in the wrong time, but today I had this sudden wave of gratitude that I exist in this time. There are so few places in history where a person like me would fit. A woman? Learning science? Owning a business? And property? GOOD LORD, SHE’S READING TOO! Not only that, but the technology and freedom of the internet makes so many things possible. The fact that I can connect to you, my reader, is a miracle all on its own. How incredible is that? There’s no editor, producer, marketer, or other gate-keeper between you and me. The only barrier between us communicating is the click of a button. Even twenty years ago, that was impossible.
It just seems like now is the perfect time. The exact time where it is within my grasp, if I’m dedicated and determined, to one day support myself on stories alone. I’m not there yet, and probably won’t be for years to come, but just the fact that it is possible is remarkable.
How about you? Are you in the right time period, or were you born in the wrong time?
