Our lives move at such pace that yesterday’s accomplishments quickly disappear from our memory. A recent move prompted an enlightening trip down memory lane that ended in a box filled with problems solved, challenges met, and hurdles overcome. On the lid I wrote “Victory Box”. I’m keeping it around for those long days when things haven’t gone so well. If no one else tells me I’m smart and competent, I’ll tell it to myself…and then open that box and prove it.

In a scene straight out of a Hollywood movie, an unknown vocal instructor gets plucked from the audience at the Hollywood Bowl and creates magic on stage with Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth. The performance of Sarah Horn has, in the blink of an eye, changed the trajectory of her life, and taught the rest of us an important life-lesson.
