Attempt the impossible

This has always been a motto of mine: Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.

American actress, Bette Davis was born on this day in 1908 (died 1989).

I’ve been enjoying getting to know a little more about Bette Davis watching Feud on FX. How she and Joan Crawford survived filming that picture without killing each other I may never know. Or maybe that’s in the next episode.

I love getting caught up in the drama of the back stories of Hollywood’s golden years. Sure you can visit one of those click baits on Facebook that promises “things you didn’t know about All in the Family, or Lucille Ball, or…”

But it’s more fun to read and watch the “real” stories. Joan and Bette have been fun, but I’m ready for PBS and Netflix to take me back to Elizabeth and Victoria.

Spring break is upon us, if you’re one of those who gets spring break. Easter is just around the corner.

And for me, the flu has cleared up just in time for pollen season. It’s an exchange I’m willing to make.

It’s Wednesday. It’s spring. And we all have plenty of work to do.

But let’s not forget the walks in the park and visits to the amusement park to pay my salary.

Along the way, try something impossible. You’ll be better off for it.

Bette thought so.
