  • Often, I hear the phrase that Life does not provide second chances.

    Meanwhile, Terri-Ann is preparing for the staring role in her third act.

    You see, to understand Terri-Ann, is to know the first two acts. And what connects these two acts are a teaspoon of doubt, two tablespoons of naysayers, a pinch of being risk-adverse, and three cups of determination (gently sifted).

    The third act, stirred with the love of a wooden spoon, combines the above elements with a cup of clarity, one broken dream (but toss away the shell), a dash of the zest of eagerness, and a quart of hope.

    Marinate until satisfied with the result. But be sure to check with her to confirm she's ready.

    (Trust me, she'll know by simply flashing a smile.)
