Zachariah ... 64 years old and on a plane for the first time in his life. He's saved up and is going to visit his first grandchild who lives in San Diego... he's also excited to see the ocean for the first time.
San Francisco woman
She walked down the street like there was no one else there. Here attitude and presence was something to admire. The way she walked and the way she held (I'm assuming) her daughters hand... I could of followed them for blocks...
Sylvie - worked all day at her law firm filing motions, meeting with clients, and drawing up documents and now she is looking forward to a hot bath and an hour of Netflix. Maybe she’ll pour a glass of wine and nibble on chocolate tonight, too.
Bernice realizes that getting through the next four years is going to require all hands on deck, and she’s ready for the challenge. But first, a little hula hooping.
Yvette made a big presentation at work today. She was pretty nervous and her voice was shaking, but after the standing ovation, she knew she must have done something right. She’ll tuck that memory away for a day when she could use some extra cheering.
Idella - people often tell her she’s too quiet, she needs to speak up, but the minute she steps into that courtroom she is as fierce and fiery as a mama bear. The funniest thing is, no one knows she’s headed to Albuquerque this weekend to try out for The Voice.
Tru (short for Trudy) has been feeling burned out lately, but this latest case has her fired up again. She knows she can win it and the anticipation of the trial and her chance to fight for her client’s rights is just what she needed to turn things around. She can feel her father’s voice in her head telling her to “just do her best and everything will be alright.”
Pamela loves jigsaw puzzles and tries to think of life as a series of odd-shaped pieces that eventually will fit together. This metaphor has helped her through many a tight spot!
Bronwen knows if she can help even one person get access to better healthcare then she will have changed the world because she is sure that great things are done by linking a series of small things together. Ever since she was a kid she has imagined the world is a cobweb with a zillion silvery strands linking everything
Iris loves the fact that her name is also a part of her body. When she was little, she would announce this to her parents’ friends whenever they came over for dinner. Even now, she prides herself on the strength of her intuition.
Plymouth used to run track in college - the 800 meter. Now, she’s taking things a little slower, but her competitive spirit is still alive and kicking!
Doreen has had enough of the way things are in her life but she needs the strength to push through the overwhelming weight on her shoulders and get to the other side. Her weekly piano lesson and meeting her best friend for dinner on Friday will go a long way toward lightening her load.
Jessamine was a horrible math student, and so it is pretty ironic that she pursued a career in finance. She kept all of her old report cards and looks at them once in awhile just to remind herself that anything is possible.
Lydia has fond memories of her years in ballet school and tries to pirouette somewhere in public at least once daily. Her personal motto is “Don’t forget to dance” and she says this to herself whenever she gets into a tight spot.
Viv once worked on a farm in Vermont. She lives in the city now, and though the waiting list was 4 years long, she finally got a plot in the community garden. She can’t wait to sink her hands into the dirt and grow her own tomatoes again.
Jocelyn loves old movies and has memorized the lines to dozens of them. It’s what got her into acting school, which led her, eventually into teaching. Last semester, she was the highest rated professor at the university.
