It's the Stories

Ah. Now I remember. It's the stories. 

These people are my much shinier, much richer, much more sophisticated story-teller cousins. Their lives are dedicated to story. Their lives tonight became stories in themselves. The stories that all started, every single one, with someone's writing. Stories that reveal truth, inspire love, and open doors to unasked and often unanswerable questions.

Tonight is about dreams coming true. Dreams that can come true for all of us. Maybe not so dramatically. Maybe not so publicly. Maybe not honored by Sophia Loren or Robert DeNiro. But so very possible.

Only three hundred sixty five days until the next Academy Awards. I can hardly wait. Only a few hours until tomorrow when I continue my own journey to a dream fulfilled. I can hardly wait for that, too.

I can hardly wait until your dream is fulfilled...and your story is shared. And you receive your well deserved rewards.

I'm loving you

Whoop! I so agree. It IS the stories! That is what it is all about. Why I love it, too.
