It's one of my goals, dreams...to write down as much of my life's journeys as possible. Because one day I'll be gone, and so will they. I remember that shortly after my father died (way too young), I longed for his stories about WWII. I wished I had sat a little longer, talked a little less and listened a little closer....because where some of the stories remained in my memory...the very essence of what made them so extremely important to me....the storyteller....was gone. I personally don't...

One of the worst things I've ever done for my self-esteem was to underestimate myself or my abilities. Interesting way to start a thought, huh? Two short weeks ago, I took on a lead role for a play that opens this Thursday. All of the other actors have had their script and have been learning their lines for MONTHS. I just got the script.
