While walking in the woods on Bald Head Island, I nearly stepped on this woman.
Even though her mouth is just a small speck of leaf, she has an upbeat expression, a confidence.
She looks happy in her own skin and her dress made of bark.
I just auditioned for Arsenic and Old Lace. I was dying to play one of the crazy aunts.
No go. No part for me.
But my Woman in the Woods whispered, “Plug on.Confidence! You’ve got other roles to play.”
Grandma. Writer. Blogger. Traveler. Friend. Teacher. Decorator. Wife. Cookie Cake Baker.
(Note I put Grandma first. Maze is coming next week, and I’m going to bake him a giant cookie cake. I just have to figure out how to get Yoda or Batman in frosting on the top.)
What about you? What would my Woman in the Woods whisper to you right now?
