Write what you know and share your knowledge - write what you feel and share your heart and soul.
Never quit. Never give up.
But, learn to recognize when the game is over so you can move forward.
Every person you come into contact with, every day of your life, will in some way be affected by you, however minimally it might be. Try to make it positive.
Blanche was right. After witnessing (and experiencing, real or viscerally) 9/11/2001, hurricanes, earth quakes, tornadoes, etc. I believe in, and have relied on the kindness of strangers.
I hope that random acts of kindness become a way of life. Not just a fad.
There is more good than evil.
There is more right than wrong.
There is more love than hate.
I believe God gave certain people incredibly beautiful smiles as a gift to the rest of us.
We are called to serve, not judge.
