Sing. Floss. Travel.

  • Do one thing every day that scares you.
  • Sing.
  • Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
  • Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements.
  • Accept certain inalienable truths: Prices will rise. Politicians will philander. You, too, will get old. And when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble, and children respected their elders.

If I sing, it kills two birds.
It is certainly scary, not only to me but anyone within earshot.
Sigh.....I'm still searching for
my "gifts".

Ha! A good point. If you paint badly or write bad poetry (my occasional indulgence), no one has to know. But if you sing badly...yes, it could have a "ripple effect."

Still, that shouldn't stop you. Just belt out the occasional show tune in the shower.
