Life Won't Wait (Trish Doller)

I don't have a post about my author photo because I don't have one. But I wanted to talk about a different picture--the one of my tattoo that I've been using as my "official" photo until I get my author pictures done.

I got the tattoo a few years ago to commemorate a favorite song from a favorite album from a favorite band. "Life Won't Wait" from Rancid is mostly a socio-political message, but there's a line in the song (which is sung by reggae superstar Buju Banton) that goes "Decide your fate, but life won't wait."

Exactly.

So many people tell me, "I've always had this idea for a book, but I don't have the time." Or, "Someday I'm going to write a book." Or, maybe you want to paint, learn a new language, lose weight, take up a new hobby. Whatever it is, life won't wait. You're never going to have enough time and someday will never happen unless you make it.

What are you waiting for?

    I also have a band related tattoo. The Pliedes from the Red Hot Chili Pepper song "Can't Stop."
