The Andrew Sisters – Near You 1947

Have you ever been asked to do something out of your comfort zone? Ever felt like you were unqualified, not talented enough, or simply not good enough?

Yeah, that happened to me. Only this time I didn’t have to stand alone.

My girlfriends, Mary, Deborah and I, accepted the challenge to participate at our church’s Sweetheart Banquet. Ah, the joys of friendship! We went all out in finding matching outfits and practiced for weeks. Our bonding during rehearsal, accompanied a good deal of missteps and loads of laughter, while lip-synching to “Near You”.

On the night of the event, when our turn came up, my motto was to zero in on my husband in the audience, sing to him, keep balanced wearing heels, and just have fun! We pulled it off and had a blast performing our skit. We received loads of compliments.

So when you think you can’t – you just might after all. Then again, you’ll never know if you never try.

Aren’t we purty?

MenilFest

MenilFest
On April 18th, I’ll be joining many authors, artists, and musicians at Houston’s annual MenilFest! The festival goes from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., so if you’re in town, be prepared for an ENTIRE day of entertainment.

MenilFest is an annual one-day festival of art, words and noise bringing together the visual, literary and performing arts organizations located on the Menil Collection campus.

Now in its 7th year, MenilFest! is a unique merger of literature, performance art and words–both spoken and written.

This family-oriented outdoor festival is brimming with live performances, films, artists, food trucks, and word-smiths and takes place on the beautifully austere 30 acre Menil campus.

Featuring nearly 100 independent authors, bookstores, magazines, presses and literary arts organizations!

Check back often or follow me on Twitter @MarysReflection for more details as the book fair grows closer.
