“I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart.”— Alice Walker
The lights grew dim as wristbands began to illuminate the arena. A voice low, yet robust filled the atmosphere. Women excitedly cheered on as they recognized the familiar voice speaking. I could barely hear what she was reciting over the roaring applause. And then, like a vision of a burning sun, she rose from within the stage. We all lost our minds! It took me a second to realize that I was watching Oprah Gail Winfrey walk on the stage. Tears began to well in my eyes as it hit me: I was seeing Oprah in the flesh.
So are you sick of me telling you who’s coming to town yet?! I hope not. Because….
The Dr. Oz Show is making Atlanta’s WSB-TV its new home!
Starting Monday, September 8th, The Dr. Oz Show will air at 3pm on WSB-TV channel 2. We were first introduced to this charming man through Oprah Winfrey (because she just knows all the best people). And since then, his syndicated daytime show has been making great strides on the airwaves.
Oh but wait, there’s more. If you’re in the Atlanta area, you don’t want to miss the “Bringing Healthy Back with Dr. Oz” health expo, presented by USANA on September 13th at the Downtown Hilton.
I’m always trying to find ways to challenge myself as a writer. It’s rare for me to call myself that as I don’t see it in me often. Doing challenges, reading the thoughts of others or just jotting random ideas down all help my writing efforts.
Writing is an important activity I think we all have to do. It can be exhausting trying to keep up with all the thoughts running through your mind. Get it all out.
Here’s a writing challenge on the blog From a Wild Flower that looks fun.
By the end of the challenge (or throughout the challenge, if you like), come back to this post and let me know how it’s coming along!
We interrupted your amazing Saturday plans to bring you a special message….
OPRAH IS COMING TO ATLANTA NEXT FRIDAAAAAAAAY!!!!
