The Road Less Traveled


The Road Less Traveled

Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.



Elementary School Teacher or County Music Star

When did I say “No” to becoming a star?

Was there a moment in time, that if I sit and reminisce enough, I could find that my irrepressible urge to sing was suddenly overtaken by the immense pleasures found in teaching…  eclipsing the doldrums of the day?

Suddenly, the writing of lesson plans, in the hopes of unleashing ‘light bulb moments’ in innocuous children’s minds, completed a victory lap in the race for my future.

When was that day?

Total victory has never been complete…

Just ask my next-door neighbor’s when they are playing horseshoes in their backyard as I am taking a shower????
