IMAGINE MY SURPRISE WHEN--IN 1996-- MY HOMETOWN PAPER RAN A LONG-AGO PHOTO OF ME--MISS ARKANSAS, 1958-- SITTING ON A FANCY FLOAT, TITLED "CINDERELLA"---AND SPONSORED BY A LOCAL BANK---IN ITS "PAST AND PRESENT" SECTION. I WASN'T SURPRISED TO BE A MEMORY FROM THE PAST BUT---I'D NEVER-EVER SEEN THIS PARTICULAR PHOTO. I HAVE A GREAT MEMORY BUT---I DON'T REMEMBER THIS FLOAT---LET-ALONE-- RIDING ON IT!

YES, I ACKNOWLEDGE IT'S ME---WEARING MY OFFICIAL CROWN AND MY MISS AMERICA COMPETITION GOWN BUT---THE HOW-WHEN-WHY QUESTIONS HAD NO ANSWERS IN 1996---AND NO ANSWERS HAVE MATERIALIZED--- ALL THESE YEARS LATER !

AH! SWEET MYSTERIES OF LIFE. SIMPLY MORE-FORGOTTEN MEMORIES--- FROM A COMPLICATED PAST THAT WILL FOREVER GO---UNANSWERED.

FORGIVE ME FOR BEING SOOOOOO-LATE IN POSTING MY REGRETS BUT---I AM NOT FEELING WELL AND MUST GO TO BED EARLY TONIGHT. EARLY THIS AFTERNOON, I REALIZED I HAD A TEMP. AND NEEDED TO TAKE A TYLENOL. NOW, I KNOW IT'S TIME TO
CLOSE DOWN, GET UNDER THE WARM COVERS, AND LET SLEEP WORK ITS MAGIC. HOPEFULLY, I'LL BE BACK TOMORROW EVENING--- WITH MORE TO SHARE.

PLEASE STAY WELL, STAY POSITIVE, AND STAY CLOSE. I SINCERELY- LOVE HAVING YOU IN MY LIFE.

I LOVED THE BOOK AND I LOVED THE MOVIE! I'VE LOST COUNT HOW MANY TIMES I SAT THROUGH THE MOVIE AND READ THE BOOK SO---WHEN I WAS ASKED TO BE A JUDGE FOR THE "MISS SCARLETT" PAGEANT---I DIDN'T HESITATE TO SAY "YES."

READ "SIMPLY, SALLY" ---LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE. OVER THE YEARS, I'VE JUDGED ALL-KINDS OF PAGEANTS BUT THIS PAGEANT WILL BE REMEMBERED AS: THE- MOST-UNFORGETTABLE---EVER.

PLEASE STAY CLOSE,

SALLY

These words have become my guide.

Let's focus on living our lives in such a way--the melody of our life stories will end-- on the HIGHEST NOTE.

Please Stay Close,

WHAT YOU'LL FIND IN MY "NEXT" BOOK:

BEFORE LONG---I WILL COMPLETE THE EDITING AND PRINTING OF MY BOOK CALLED:  ALL THE WALL.    THIS FIRST-EVER PICTURE BOOK WITH A "RUNNING" NARRATIVE---WILL DOCUMENT MY MONTHS-LONG JOURNEY OF THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA. 

THE GREAT WALL WAS MY OBSESSION FROM THE AGE OF NINE YEARS---WHEN I SAW A PHOTO OF CHINA'S GREAT WALL---IN MY FOURTH GRADE GEOGRAPHY BOOK.  FORTY YEARS LATER-- CHINA GRANTED ME PERMISSION TO TRAVEL THE LENGTH OF THE GREAT WALL AND UNEARTH ITS MANY SECRETS. 

I  WAS FIFTY YEARS OLD WHEN I OFFICIALLY BEGAN MY GREAT WALL JOURNEY BUT INSIDE----I WAS THE NINE YEAR OLD GIRL WHO'D PATIENTLY-WAITED MORE THAN FORTY YEARS TO MEET HER LONGTIME FRIEND---THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA.

FROM TIME TO TIME, I'LL BE SHARING MY ONE-OF-A-KIND GREAT WALL PHOTOS AND REVEALING A FEW OF ITS SECRETS ON "SIMPLY, SALLY"...LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE.

YES--AS SOON AS POSSIBLE---I'LL BE TAKING YOU TO THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA WITH MY SECOND BOOK.  

STAY CLOSE.

MY REALITY.

 

In my life, there are no guarantees. Life keeps changing and before long.... it's time to pack-up my memories----and start a new life--all-over-again.

The little-girl-in-me keeps hoping our endless rides on life's Merry-Go-Round are over but, apparently, my Mother "gifted" me with a lifetime ticket.

Evil never dies.

THE DAY I LOST EVERYONE, I LONGED FOR DEATH. INSTEAD---I WAS BLESSED WITH A NEW LIFE.

I WAS UNABLE TO IGNORE THE WORDS THAT WERE WHISPERED IN MY EAR---WORDS THAT SAID: "YOU AREN'T FINISHED. GOD HAS MUCH-MORE FOR YOU TO DO."
