Adventures Ahead!

Hello everyone!

I apologize for being out of touch but I’ve been extremely busy these past few weeks. Not to mention I took a mini get-away to one of my favorite places—Solvang, California—to celebrate my birthday. While I was there I left a couple more “Laura and the Leprechauns” books for the Bookcrossing site because I thought it would be a neat place for a book to begin its journey. The books were literally gone within minutes! It was great! I also picked up a princess dress at… Continue

Interview with Leonard Jacobs, author of Historic Photos of Broadway: NY Theatre 1850-1970

A Q&A with Leonard Jacobs, author of the new title, the Historic Photos of Broadway: New York Theatre 1850-1970:

When did you get involved in theatre?

The theatre bug bit me early. I did plays in school, but as far as professional theatre, I did internships with Off Broadway companies, and even at one point being a “Stage Door Johnny,” waiting at the back by the door trying to get autographs.

But my break came in 1990 when I got an internship with Theater Week, a… Continue

Up and down, up and down

It’s the pull of gravity isn’t it?

You’re down longer than you’re up

Isaac said it best

It’s easier going up

Slow, steady

But coming down is frightful

Fast, quick

No time to prepare

Up and down, up and down

The unsteadiness is making you sick

You’re screaming

It’s uncomfortable

You wanna get… Continue

It’s like reaching for something far away. If you keep on reaching and running without stopping, you will obtain what you are reaching for. Persevering, not quitting, but going after it with all your might, as though you have to have it; that’s the driving force. Don’t look at time

as a barrier. Look at it this way, the years are going to pass anyway, so why not accomplish what you wish.

The battle starts in your mind, that’s where it is. It is a… Continue

Have you ever felt like a hypocrite at church?

Here's a sobering truth from my friend Cheri. Check it out.

Doubting Faithful

Have you ever felt like a hypocrite at church? I have. People see me as this super spiritual person, but I'm just like everyone else. I have days when doubt overtakes me. The mountains seem bigger than my faith, the road is filled with more obstacles than I can imagine, and I feel so small. I'm tired.

That is when the voices of doubt are louder than my voice of faith. I hear the voices say… Continue
