The Most Beautiful Ruined Moment

I Love this story and I love that the man in the Jedi Master role found out about this blog and responded. Seems every time I need to be reminded there is good in the world I come across something like this :).


"Write!" she says.


Dear Master Jedi,
       This is an open letter of deep appreciation to you. I hope that somehow it finds its way to your computer screen.

     You are an actor, and a damn funny one to boot. You’re really skilled at working with the unpredictably of kids and turning it into entertainment. I really hope that when you auditioned for and won this gig, that you’ve been as pleased with your job as your audiences have been with your performance. I also hope that this leads to bigger and better things, if that’s what you choose. You’re a supremely decent man and I’m ever in your debt for how you helped me out Tuesday, June 4th at the end of the last show of the day.

You see, during the months of planning for our Disneyworld trip, I found out about the Jedi Training Academy in Hollywood Studios…

The Yearning!


Do you yearn to run?  It has been a crazy couple of weeks culminating in a 22-hour work day Sunday into Monday and three very long days since.  With all of this work I have only run one time this week for about 30-minutes.

On my way to work today one of the songs I have on my running play list came on the radio, and then I passed someone who was running; and the yearning began, hard and deep.  I sincerely wanted to pull my car over, get out and just start running.  Had I not been in dress pants and a pair of loafers, and 10-minutes late for a meeting, it might have happened.

I have also noticed myself waving to and cheering on runners this week as I drive by them.  I have done that before, but this past week it is every runner that I see.  I am throwing thumbs up, fist pumps, waves, you name it, if it is a positive reinforcement sign, I have thrown it this week.

A little over a year ago if someone would have shared with me his/her desire to run and how much they enjoyed it and needed it, I probably would have scoffed and made a comment.  Something like “I only run if I am being chased.” or “I only run to get the phone”.  NOW, I understand that yearning that comes when your routine has been sidelined.  How you can feel that desire to run and how you can think about it to the point of distraction.

Tonight when I get home, loafers and dress pants off , running shoes and shorts on; I will satisfy this yearning tonight!
