I got a wake up call

I logged on to one of the newspapers I read online, and my eyes immediately caught sight of an article. At first I couldn't really figure out why I needed to click on the link and read it, but a faint bell started to ring. It was a book review, and the book that was being reviewed was written by... and old acquaintance of mine!
It made me very happy and very proud of him. He had a dream, and he did it. He lived it, he wrote about it and now he's sharing it with us (and he's got a second book in the works, too). You can't but respect a person who has followed his or her dreams, whether it's a big one or a small one.
But this was also a wake up call for me, to put it nicely (my original line of thinking was more towards a kick in the behind).
