Stage Fright – Take 2

This post turned out to be very different than I had originally intended. I was going to tell you how I faced one of my worst fears head-on; that is, how I took on public speaking. The details of my speech are of little importance to this post. Suffice it to say, I had been offered to [...]

That day, I was running a few errands in a little town about 20 miles away from home.On the way back, I found that the road I would usually take home was blocked.Roadworks.“I can handle that!” I thought to myself, “I’ll just turn around and take the highway.” Which I did.Well, almost.As I was about [...]
