Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me.

Not bad for a woman in her mid- 60's. I know Cher has had some help from a scalpel to slow down the aging process. But I don't care. She's Sixty and Sexy. I love a woman who lives by her own rules and Cher does just that. Girl, you go.
