Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
-- Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5

WE DREAMED IT TOO
OFF SHE GOES!
Our granddaughter Beth had a dream. She has vowed to audition for the American Idol show since it came on the air years ago. You have to be 16 to audition. Beth turned 16 in May and her family kept a promise to her to to help make this dream come true.
Friday the drawn out process began to get all the paperwork in order and receive the table assignments. Beth was assigned her table of four in a huge gymnasium. These tables were in a circle and Beth was happy to see the table next to her got to go first. This meant her tryouts would go quickly. Wrong! It started next to her then went the opposite way which made her table last.
She is a delightful songbird. When her time did come, she went for it. She has courage and confidence unknown to many teenagers. I could never have done such at thing at her age.
No one from her table was selected. While she knew that would most likely be the outcome with so many competing, she still had dared to dream and follow through on that dream.
Beth has accomplished just another stage of the many roads to triumph in her life. She has proven once again that she can do it. I could not be more proud of this talented child who is out to take on the world.
