THANKS TO ALL MY FRIENDS FOR HELPING ME BATTLE MY OWN VERMICIOUS KNIDS.

While it is exciting to take on new endeavors, it can also be a bit overwhelming and frightening.

At 56, I have gotten pretty good at a lot of things within my comfort zone. Expanding into new challenges often means not being the expert or having all the answers. It means a fair amount of fumbling in the dark and making missteps.

Putting together this new concert has been a bit terrifying for me. Part of me is tempted to stay within the peace and safety of what I already know away from all the Wangdoodles, and Hornswogglers, and Snozzwangers, and rotten, Vermicious Knids.

And another part feels like the only way to deal with my own fears and uncertainties is face them and move through those Wangdooodles.

I am blessed to have great friends to help me when I feel scared and overwhelmed. They help put the Snozzwangers in perspective and remind me that those rotten Vermicious Knids don’t exist outside of my own mind. They are just another thing to be brought into the light and dealt with.

I appreciate so many of my friends who see things with great clarity and have helped me so often.
