It’s been two and a half years of varied schedules, most of which involved a 4am wake up. Now, it’s over. And, for the next 6 months, my wake up time will be later and my husband will be arriving home much later. That’s right, the tools have found their place. My husband has graduated and is a certified journeyman mechanic.

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
