Binding the Book

Just the other day, I was staring at the horizon, listening to the waves slap the hulls.

“I like your aura,” she says, “what do you do?”

“Lately, I’ve been calling myself a writer.” I reply.

We are out on a big cat, doing the booze cruise and picnic on the beach thing; about 25 women and 15 men. I felt like Custer before we even left the dock.

“I dreamt about you, you know. Well, maybe not exactly you, but I dreamt that I was going to meet a writer who would write my story.”

“What do you do then, that needs telling?”

She smiles and says, “Well, it’s just that my path is a miracle. I mean, my life is such a mysterious thing with the most amazing signs along the way.”

“How did you end up here?” I ask. “I came down on a mission and then stayed because I got a job,” she answers.

“Mission?” I ask.

“Yes, well, that’s one of the signs I got. I was just finishing up at the seminary and one of my teachers asked if I felt called to do missionary work. So, I gave away everything I owned, then my house burnt down and now I am here. I just followed the signs.”

“I see.” I say. “What’s the job?”

“Oh, construction management,” she says. “Steel beams and girders and things like that.”

“Raising high the roof beam?” I ask.

“What’s that?” she frowns.

“Oh, just a writer’s joke. What else do you do?”

“Well, I’m a Reiki Master Practitioner and a massage therapist.”

“That would explain the aura comment then. Why don’t you write your own story?”

“Can’t write a letter, let alone a book. What kind of writing do you do?”

“The kind with words.”

“Funny. I mean what genre?”

“Probably metaphysical is the most apt description.”

“You don’t do biographies then?”

“Nope, never have. I am, however, working on my own story.”

“It must be interesting too.” she says.

“Yes,” I reply, “it must be. If not, no one will read it, will they?”
