I’m officially 53, as of yesterday — and as you are reading this I’m probably walking the beach at Nags Head, picking up seashells and taking pictures.
Twenty years ago today, I was 10 days away from my 33rd birthday. I was working as the Lifestyles Editor in the newsroom of The Daily Herald. Hard news wasn’t on my plate.
Last year, the world kind of stopped and many festivals, events, theater, etc., were put on hold. I’m so happy the Littleton Downtown Turnaround festival is coming back this year.
I know she will be mad when she reads this, because she hates attention, but I couldn’t let my news editor and very good friend, Carolyn Harmon, get away without saying something.
For the last year, I have longed for ways to escape from the reality of life. COVID-19 was a big part of that, and there was no escaping since everything was closed and I had to work from home.
I have loved to sing since I was a small child — with the radio, a tape, along with an album, on family trips driving my family crazy — any chance I have, I sing.
