“Another school year has begun.” I’ve noticed that over the years, the meaning of that simple sentence has gone through some dramatic changes – at least for me. Whether those changes are good, is, well, open to interpretation.
As some may know, I was in a Forrest City Little Theatre production over the weekend. I sang, I acted a little bit. I did not dance.
I hope I’m not jinxing myself by mentioning this. And I don’t want to get my hopes too high, but something seems to be developing.
There was this wedding over the weekend that I had to attend. This was the second of two young women. I consider them the daughters I never had. Man, did I work hard to get them grown and married.
