Striving and Thriving

Susan Boyle, Unexpected Champion Of Dreams

For all of us who feel frowsy and frumpy…

For all of us who think people are rooting against us because we’re not cool, or fashionable, or beautiful…

For all of us with dreams that will not die…

Susan Boyle dreamed a dream.

She appeared on the stage of Britain’s Got Talent as the epitome of the middle aged, quirky housewife neighbor lampooned so often on the BBC. By the end of the opening line of her song, she had Simon Cowell swept away.

Yes, that Simon Cowell. Mr. Testy from American Idol.

He is transported by the angelic voice of this stunning hero; and all the audience is transported, too, as their cynical chuckling is squelched by their awe.

Listening to her sent a shiver up my spine and gave me goose bumps.

Enjoy your elation.
