Whenever I'm feeling afraid of doing something, fearful of taking a chance, I think of the "George Gray" entry from the "Spoon River Anthology" by Edgar Lee Masters.

I first heard of on an episode of "Once and Again" in the late 1990s.

Now I keep that particular poem on my desk, and frequently re-read it.

Thank you so much for sharing the quotes! And who would have thought that Patrick Dempsey would be that insightful? I guess he really is McDreamy :)


I Loooooooooove Quotes, too!!!! I collect the goodies,too. Some just simply inspire!!


Hi. I've been so busy getting settled here into Fla. ourselves that I haven't checked your blog as often as I should, but you've been in my thoughts and prayers. I'm glad to hear that you're slowly getting better. I'm sure Colter will be better soon, too.

I love the new blog design, by the way. It's clean and simple, focusing on what's essential. I expect that's much like your life these days.


I'm sorta the same way. But my favorite quote is:

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. - Albert Einstein

What inspires me most are my children. They've done pretty damn good with the train wreck my ex-husband and I gave them. Each and every day I'm reminded at how lucky I am.
