• This Performance’s Cast:

    As a freelancer who works from home, my support system is of tantamount importance.

    My editors: Such great support and encouragement. One actually told me yesterday that being an editor requires that “you can see through all kinds of bullsh–.” I found that hilarious.

    My true friends: The real ones make themselves well known and obvious.

    My husband: Also my accountant, business partner, and sometimes-work-from-home buddy- is on the lookout for me all the time. I call him the Enforcer. What I say “I’m going to make xx dollars this month,” he makes sure it’s so. When I say “I’m not going to waste time doing xx,” he makes it so I don’t have to. I love this man.

    My kids: Provide incredible material! Where else can you hear that “men have a penis and women have a China”? I mean, I can’t MAKE this stuff UP!

    My family: One side spans two nations and two languages, the other side spans over 30 years of history.

    I couldn’t do this job so well without a supporting cast like this.

    No man is an island, entire of itself
    every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main
    if a clod be washed away by the sea,
    Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were,
    as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were
    any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind
    and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls
    it tolls for thee.

    — John Donne

    Sharon you are AWESOME! I love that.

    We had to dissect that poem my very first day of my very first English class and I thought I was in heaven.
