Choosing An Epic Path

David pointed at me. “Purple leotard – what’s your name?”

I felt a bit timid around new people at the ripe age of thirteen. “Me? I’m Heather.”

“Heather, come up to the front, stage left. That’s where you’ll be for this piece.”

I waddled on up and took my spot.

“You love to dance, correct?”

I smiled and nodded, “Yes.”

“Okay then. Next time, leap with joy and enthusiasm to your spot.”

Even at age thirteen, I got the message. If I was going to do something, do it with vigor. 

In collaboration with VoyageATL + David Norwood, here is our story of being epic.
