Words, words, words ~Shakespeare
Egads. It’s Monday and my turn to blog. How I wish I had something pithy, witty, and interesting to say, but I just don’t. I long to be insightful. I’d settle for being mildly amusing, but nothing’s coming through...
My brain is tired and is taking a much needed break.
So, instead of sharing any of my own words, I decided to share others’ words with you. Some words that resonated in me enough to cause me to write them down and pin them to the corkboard above my desk.
Do one thing every day that scares you. ~Eleanor Roosevelt
Act as if it were impossible to fail. ~ Dorothea Brand
I am in the world to change the world. ~Muriel Rukeyser

Feel free to share your favorites…maybe one of yours will spur my brain back into action.
