Happy New Year to you and everyone!
Yes. I am back. Hopefully nobody is hearing the creepy Jaws music right now. I wish I could say I am bouncing off the walls with zany energy.
I would love to tell you that I am blowing up balloons, rubbing each against my head and attaching them to the walls at odd angles.
If only I could announce how I am playing a noisemaker like the sax, although with much less finesse and sex appeal.
None of that would be true, however. I decided not to fake it. I will say hello to your kind souls and stay clear of my mild depression.
In honor of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King, on his 86th birthday today, let me share one of his quotes.
This is important to me because it is giving me courage right now. I hope it does so for all oppressed groups who are being denigrated every single moment these days. This includes all women involved in the #metoo movement and #timesupnow.
“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
