In Others’ Words: A Single Regret

In Others’ Words: A Single Regret

When I was in high school, I was involved in drama, both acting and directing plays. It was always challenging to decide whether to try out for a lead part or a secondary role. And directing? That was a whole other kind of fun. Once I decided which role I wanted, I had to prep, audition, and then wait for the director to post the list announcing who earned what role. I celebrated when I got the role I wanted. Adapted when I didn’t... Read More »

But there’s no getting around rainy days … and there’s no getting around puddles in our paths, either. We hav... Read More »

In Others’ Words: What Would You Wish For?

In Others’ Words: What Would You Wish For?

Today’s quote has just a touch of whimsy to it, don’t you think? Haven’t we all dreamed of a wish or two coming true? Maybe paused a moment or two longer before we blew out the candles on our birthday cake and wished extra hard for a certain something? Tossed a few coins in a wishing well? Or wondered when our fairy godmother was going to show up and announce she had our longed-for dream all taken care of? Making a wis... Read More »
