Hard work and perserverance bring reward

When I was in first grade, I was a Reading Rainbow junkie. I've always been a reader. And when LeVar Burton said that the moral of the tortoise and the hare fable was not the classic "Slow and steady wins the race" but "Hard work and perserverance bring reward", he was *right*. It was official. It was on TV, after all!

Some weeks later, the same Aesop's fable showed up in music class with Miss Margie. And when she asked for the moral of the story, I gave her Levar's moral. And as petite as I am now, I was trop petite when I was six.  Small kid, big vocabulary.

Well, Optimista, your persistance in prodding has yielded a blog. Let's see where things go from here.


  1. Your blog is beautiful!!! I love it and can't wait to see where it goes. And how cute is six-year-old you! I just want to huuuuuug her!
