HEIDI'S POV:
Shall We Dance?

 

Two steps forward and one step backward. It’s like a dance, but not as graceful. And not fun. If I were naming this particular dance right now, it would be called The Frustration.

This is totally how I’m feeling about the recovery of live meetings and events at the moment. Frustrated: one hundred percent.

It was only a few months ago that I was raving about my new quarantine wardrobe purchases and all of the new shoes I’d be kicking up my heels in this fall at live trade events..

While my knowledge of classics extends only marginally beyond the name of the fraternity I belonged to in school (Delta Chi, in case you want to know!), out of curiosity, I decided to investigate the Latin origins of the word.

HEIDI'S POV:
But That’s The Fork I Knew

 

Have you ever seen the movie, Pretty Woman?  I don’t know exactly how many times I’ve seen it, but let’s just say, that I’ve streamed it enough times in 2020 alone to generate enough royalties for Julia Roberts to be born, live, retire and die on.
