    And a dancer once said, I believe it was Martha Graham… “You do what you can when you can.”

    I’m thinking…what would Donald O’Connor do?

    All in sweet time. All in sweet time.

    Carol King sings this mantra well with Sweet Seasons.

    Were you ever really terrified of the changes that seasons in our lives brings? Or the hunger? Do we all go through this as part of the growth, through that “fire”…
    and get fed up with people thinking that they were the ones that ought to put you through it?

    By the way. Good Morning to you.
    Do I make an ounce of sense?
