The Miracle of the Call is glimpsing, for a brief moment in youth, the future outcome of the person’s life.
We walked out of the small conference room where my interview for a technical writer position just concluded. The interviewer lead me back past several cubicles. He pointed to one that was empty and said that would be mine, if I was hired for the job.
Not exactly sure of how the interview had gone, I was surprised at his casual remark. Glancing toward that cubicle, what I saw was even more surprising. On the overhead shelf I caught the briefest glimpse of my own thesaurus, dictionary and English Simplified standing upright.
Knowing at that moment the job would be mine, little did I realize that the vision was guiding me to a career in technical writing that would last for over 20 years.
