Girl On Top Part l

Strong women inspire me.  Especially those who know how to reinvent themselves following a traumatic event.  Women who are able to dive deep into their core to find their inner strength to take a difficult situation and transform into a better, stronger woman from what happened are those who keep me on my path...no matter what the difficulty. Being resilient; knowing that nothing can knock you down, even if you've been knocked down...well, that is the answer.  So many women have been knocked down, knocked out, knocked off their rocker from life and I am no different. Sometimes you've just to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again!

I decided to face one of my fears of performing in public by becoming a licensed NYC tour guide and working on-top of the double-decker buses.  This has given me great confidence in working with a microphone and improvising in front of customers.  To do this, I created characters  for my mic (Brenda Boroughs) and tip-jar (PoPo).

One of the best things about riding on the buses is when you don't have any passengers and you are left to ride throughout the city on top going down streets not on tours.  It is exhilarating, especially when the weather is nice.

Here's a picture of me on my last day of work
I'm not smiling but that doesn't mean I'm not having fun!

Here's a picture of PoPo riding the bus:
He always smiles riding through the city!

People are funny and I have some stories to share...finally...about being the Girl On Top.

So much love,
All the way
