At first dreams seem impossible,
One word expresses the pathway to greatness: voice.
Those on this path find their voice
and inspire others to find theirs.
-Stephen R. Covey
You can achieve anything you want in life
if you have the courage to dream it,
the intelligence to make a realistic plan,
and the will to see that plan through to the end.
-Sydney A Friedman
There will come a time
when you believe everything is finished.
That will be the beginning.
I received several concerned emails this morning, to the general effect of, where the heck have you been? Are you all right? And for that I thank you, I didn’t expect anyone to notice if I went quiet for a bit.
The truth of the matter is, I have been holding my breath; hoping against hope for a better tomorrow, daring to dream, but not wanting to jinx anything.
Today I voted and I feel a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders, but I am still waiting to exhale. When all is said and done, I will be able to breathe again, and reassert my voice. Until then, like so many others, I’m glued to my TV set. Fingers crossed. Waiting to exhale.
And yet, it is only the beginning.
As my pal David Letterman says, I wouldn’t have his troubles for a monkey on a rock. What a job to take on. What a mess to fix. I can only hope and pray that eveyone’s enthusiasm and dedication and support bravely soldiers on into the rough times ahead.
That’s all for now. See you tomorrow, bright and early.
