For a second I considered letting the answering machine get it, but instead I answered. It was my neighbor and friend, Jim telling me his wife was in labor and needed me.

New beginnings can be both terrifying and exhilirating, alot depends on the type of beginning we face. This past January, 2015, I returned to school after 32 years away.
