Highwire Acts & Sky-High Heels: Day Three

(Sometimes it’s tough to feel at home in your own city.  Which is why I’ve given myself a challenge:  each day, for forty days, I’m going to find *one* thing I love about this place.  And then I’m going to tell you about it.  If you want to follow my journey, start here.  Today is Day Three.) 

Last night, I craned my neck, leaned back in my seat and watched the magic of Cirque du Soleil whirling and sparkling above me.

Right here in Roanoke’s civic center.

Compliments of one of my bosses.

With a handful of kind, welcoming coworkers I didn’t have a year ago.

Wearing these shoes:


(I’m feeling like Roanoke gave me a whole lot more than just one thing to be grateful for yesterday.)

Maybe you didn’t notice, but I’ve been having a bit of a Bootstraps Moment lately.  And sometimes, pulling yourself up by your bootstraps means wearing stilettos … even if no one around you is wearing them.

So, hey — if you’re having your own Bootstraps Moment, or wanting to, or just struggling to see beauty in a place that doesn’t look so beautiful right now,  I thought I’d dedicate a little tune to you.  It’s my theme song of the moment, even if it *is* two years old already.

Enjoy. 🙂
