“Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.”

Oprah Winfry

“Equality is what does not exist among mortals.”

e. e. cummings


I couldn’t choose which quote to share this morning so I offer you both and you do what you like with either of them.

The first, “Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.” feels so very present in my life at these moments this summer. All my life I have wanted to be a writer. I am being told I am a writer. I bless the gods and goddesses, and I bless my persistence. I had a lot to do with getting me where I am today: the good places and the not so good places. Blessed be!

Much as I would like to believe we are all created equal I know it is not true. There are those who have way more to fight against and way more to understand and work with than I have ever had to do. My love and patience and hope, for anyone who has a dream and is in the middle of trusting it could come true, vibrates with the urgency for you to push through and stick to your journey.

Baby steps count.


  • I am grateful for the billions of baby steps, the starts and the fall backs, the encouragement and the love that have all contributed to my life as it is today.
  • I am grateful for my own tenacity
  • I am grateful for love.
  • I am exceedingly grateful for air conditioning. It is hot!
  • I am grateful for some holiday time coming up in July.

Stay cool. Nancy
