"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing." - Benjamin Franklin. I've learned that once an idea takes hold, it's best to tackle it with "minimum thought and maximum action." Success takes time, and success also comes in many different forms.
Also, successful people don't claim to be geniuses, but they are geniuses at working hard. And through their experiences, they learn and get smart.
I like writing and the ability to claim my voice and seat in the world. Sometimes some of the writing is readable. And if you are willing to read mine, I offer my thanks to you. Life is short and time is fleeting, and if you are spending some of it on my Medium platform, I am truly honored.
P.S. Rae Perry has been my pen name for a while, but it's not made up; it's reincarnation from a previous life.
