Those who did not know her might have said she was understudy for a bit part in life. Those who knew her saw it was only because she shunned her role as playwright. To both, it was obvious she shirked her role as lead.

If you saw her you might have thought she was doomed to sit behind the curtain and whisper cues to the stage. And if you did think that, it is because you have lost your faith in the spirit of fairytale come from behind underdog endings - the latent spirit that welcomes the prodigal son. Or daughter. It is a spirit that calls for transformation, and it was the voice of that spirit whispering in her ear in an unexpected moment that changed her life on that day…

The Bard was asked why he wrote. He replied that he wanted to make worthy thoughts famous. He did not seek fame for himself, but he imagined that those thoughts, out of gratitude and with their spiritual prowess, might provide for him through material world manifestations of moderate wealth and a little admiration. How that was to be accomplished was not his business. It was out of his hands, he said, but that is why he often praised the worthy thoughts for their gift giving generosity, much as one might propitiate a deity.
