IT’S A GOOD SIGN THAT I HAVEN’T POSTED…HAVE A LOT WAITING, BUT IT’S DIFFICULT 2 FIND THE TIME—I HAVEN’T MASTERED THE NEW BALANCE (I’M SLOWER & NEED MORE TYPING TIME, BUT ENJOY FAMILY TIME MORE–ESP. SINCE I CAN TALK 2 EVERY1, NOW).

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the
end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow”.
— Mary Anne Radmacher

“Every great endeavor starts small, sometimes as little more than a dream… But even small beginnings, after all of the roadblocks and the dead ends, can lead to great things when they ride on the wheels of a dream.”
“Music and the Spoken Word,” from “Big Dreams on a Small Island”: (http://www.musicandthespokenword.com/messages/):
I gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which I must stop and look fear in the face…I say to myself, I’ve lived through this and can take the next thing that comes along.
