Copyright 2010. An escapee in the bushes.
*Life changes. You get it all lined up just the way you like it and then something beyond your control comes along and bumps you off center. How nice it would be if you could get everything just the way you want it and say, 'Okay, now stay.'
But nothing stays the same. You grow up, make friends, lots of friends, go to college, lose track of people, meet new ones, and sometimes you ask yourself why. But all I can tell you is that every single experience you go through like this changed you in some way. Every new person wo comes into your life changes you. Every moral dilemma or emotional experience you come up against changes you. It's your job. You decide how.
That's how character is developed.*
