If anything was possible...

This week I came across a very cool concept: "paper mentors", the teachers you learn from via books. 
In my case I have cyber mentors: 

Just an example: I have taken to having Jamie´s podcasts on shuffle while I cook/iron/do general housework. Somehow I always get what I need to hear. From the Sister´s Summit I got the notion of  "constants". What is a constant in your life from an early age? Here´s my list: 
WRITING from even before than knowing how to write. Make it age 4/5.
PHOTOGRAPHING had my first camera at 6.
TEACHING I started teaching my own classmates at age 8.
SOUVENIRS / COLLECTIONS

Soooooo, what do they have in common?
Words, pictures and souvenirs: I´m a memories keeper (that goes well with my scrapbooking).
Words and teaching, I´m an Aquarius, a knowledge transmitter.
Words and pictures, creative expression.
This is the essence of "me".

Then it hit me, I´d been to my mom´s home yesterday and brought some old stuff home.
A pencil (words) sharpener and a filmcase (pictures) keychain, both were souvenirs I had collected!!!!
 I had also brought a writing pad (words) with the logo of my aunt´s English studio (teaching).
When I read Jamie´s prompt "If anything was possible, what would you wish for?" I had my answer.

I wish I could at some point work in collaboration with my cyber mentors. They are awesome women with powerful ideas and I´d love to help them spread them even wider. Not only around my usual tribes but also within the Spanish speaking communities.

Edited to add: after working and posting what´s within me I found Meg Boone´s Questations project. The first issue of the "Quotation + Question = Questation" is about what´s within you. Love that type of synchronicity so I´m adding a link for you to go and play too. :)

What a fabulous wish - may it be granted and give you the chance to work with all your mentors!
As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.

What a super post Paula and I hope your wish comes true.

Your post has certainly got me thinking about what constants there have been in my life.
