I’m revving the engine of my roadster, in preparation for a day trip to the hinterlands. It’ll be fun, but also arduous, so I’m glad my gal pal Stace (aka “Bess”) is riding shotgun.
I’ve done a great deal of legwork already. Hoo boy, that was quite an adventure! Long story made short (and illustrated metaphorically), it goes something like this:
Matter of fact, some will do everything within their power to shout you down or shut you out.
But you know Nancy: She’s nothing, if not persistent. And lucky girl, she’s surrounded by loving friends who help clear away the underbrush…who steer her back to center whenever she loses her bearings.
I admit that I’m a wee bit apprehensive. But also? Very excited. It’s not been easy, and I’m not there yet. But I’m beginning to think it’s possible to trace this tangled web back to the original knot.
