To My Friends,

When I sold books door-to-door, they told us to surround ourselves by the people we want to be. So, if you wanted to be a high school drop out, hang out with other high school drop-outs. If you wanted to be successful, hang out with successful people. I want to be a successful, compassionate, caring person that people know they can count on. I’m not sure where I am in that goal, but I try to stick with those I admire. So, this is a tribute to those whom I call friend.

You’re my friend because:

  • You make me laugh,
  • You are intelligent,
  • You are compassionate,
  • You listen, really well,
  • You juggle various roles,
  • You are humble about your accomplishments,
  • You have a colorful, beautiful story,
  • You are thoughtful, and
  • You make me want to be a better person.

Thank you for being my friend.

Me

Either way, right now, there is no move for us.

In 2007, we looked at where we were and where we wanted to be, and we decided in 10 years, we’d move. My husband moved...

All the World’s a Stage

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.”
