It's amazing, I've noticed, being in college, that all the older people have good grades (often 4.0's) because they actually CARE.

Great article! I loved the descriptions. You might want to use the spellcheck, but otherwise very interesting article.
This a wonderful story about taking chances.

I noticed a few typos face instead of faces and collage instead of college. Sometimes if you let a piece set overnight, those errors will jump right out at you. Better yet, have someone proof your piece.

Your story made me reflect on my own life. it really pulled me in and made me a part of your story. I could definitely relate.
Great use of details to create the setting. I really could identify with this lady. I especially liked the ending.

This is thought provoking and I enjoyed it. It rings of truth.
Good article. Love your dialogue. She sounds very country. A small town girl maybe. Just a thought. Keep writing.

Wisdom from age. What fun, following her back to the classroom! ...and I recognize many of the "older generation" singing groups and other things you mention. :) Love your title!
