The Road Ahead, 2010:

Sometimes, it seems full of promise.
Sometimes, it is hard to see ahead, past the dark clouds.
Sometimes, the road’s too rough, and you don’t have enough gas in the tank.
Sometimes, the signs don’t really seem likely to get you where you want at all.
Sometimes, it seems futile.

And sometimes, all you need is a wrinkled and spotted hand, reaching out over the seat for your wrinkled and spotted hand, wordlessly letting you know you are not alone…

Hard times. Recession, 2009. Hard times.
And the road ahead in 2010? Hard times or good times, or some combination of both…
There’s an outstretched hand; you are not alone.
Remember the outstretched hand. And remember to look ahead.

  3. Hi Marnie,

    Is this the Marnie Potash I went to high school with, who was so smart, funny, and original? It must be, and it’s great to see that you are still the same. As I just read in one of your blogs, character doesn’t change much, and yours certainly hasn’t. When did the last forty years go flying by? I hope you are happy and healthy. I have many fond memories of you. Warm wishes, Lou
