    Please give me Peace tonight
    So much to be grateful for
    God you've opened every door
    So let me lay down and just breath
    The future is miles away and I can just Dream
    So let me Close my eyes and just pray
    Yesterday Gone and tomorrows too far away
    Let all the doubt be gone from me
    Earthly worries I no longer see
    So let me lay down and just breath
    The Future is miles away and I can just dream
    So let me close my eyes and just pray
    Yesterday's gone and tomorrow is too far away.

    I'm so glad we don't have to "tend" to be friends - we just ARE! Cool, isn't it? Thanks for your reply!

  • Wow! The things you can learn from a child! When we left for a walk a couple of days ago, I never thought I'd learn one of the most valuable lessons of my life - from my 3-year-old granddaughter!

    We ended up in the playground at the elementary school. First I pushed her on the swings, then she climbed on the monkey bars and slid down the slide - the typical playground stuff.

    When we were just about to leave, we walked past a rather large circular, yellow plastic contraption. I asked her what she thought it was. Without hesitation she said, "A space ship, Nana" as if it was completely obvious. She climbed inside and starting giving orders. "Start the engines, Nana - Let's go to the moon"!

    It was at that moment I let my "inner child" come out to play. I said, "Aye Captain! Starting engines! Prepare for warp speed!"

    For about 40 minutes I WAS a member of this crew of two and we had wonderful adventures! When we had the treats we had packed earlier, they weren't just string cheese, water and Fruit Loops. No, we flew to Mars for cheese (which we decided was blue), to Saturn for space rings and drank Alturian Ale from our thermos. I fought off space monsters and she "covered" me from the ship.

    We were in a state of TOTAL pretend and it was truly wonderful! When I work with VO students I encourage them to let go and use their imaginations - but I have to tell you that until this lovely autumn day in Scottsbluff, Nebraska I had forgotten what it really feels like to play. It was a blast. Who knew that at 58 years old (well, next week .....) I could recapture my ability to imagine a whole new world with my granddaughter at the helm.

    If you feel like you've lost some creative spark or you just need a re-charge, I suggest a day at the park with the child of your choice. If you'll try to forget you're an adult, you'll have the time of your life.

    Well he had sense of humor!
  • This year has been a real test when it comes to thinking positively on a consistant basis. This group is really helping with lots of new ideas and inspiration. There's so many great storys to read here, I've barely scratched the surface! Thanks so much for the invite Penny! Look forward to meeting you in Hartford.
  • I've sent a comedic song out to Don and I'll ask everyone at my church to pray for him this Sunday. I hope his alveoli and all rest start to function for him again.

    I hope it doesn't hurt to laugh....It always sucks when it hurts to laugh
  • This is great, Michelle! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. What wonderful words of wisdom!

    Are you feeling any less "stuck?" Can I help?

    Hugs,

    Penny
  • WOW, Penny! I saw "CAJO" written throughout your story. I am right where you were 10 years ago. I am an extremely creative person but many times, I feel like a caged bird. Although I perform stand up comedy, I am still engaged in corporate America. I am a comedienne who happens to work for --&-. I am ready to flap my wings and fly! I just need direction. I have a passion for life and it is time for me to live! I refuse to accept mediocrity. I am fairly new to Tampa. Could you recommend a voice coach for me or a class? If I need to fly to another city, I can make arrangements. I wished that I had heard of Voiceover Universe before you held your conference. I would have love to been in attendance. Penny, I appreciate any information you may provide. God bless you and your business.
