MAKE IT COUNT will be my Mantra for 2018

I will have a lot of “performance” related moments this year, and before each, I will be telling myself to “make it count”! Some of these moments will be very small, like playing through a piano piece without mistake during practice at home, or on a public piano. However, some will be big and important, like the higher than annual average number of big consequence decisions I expect to make this year.

I picked MAKE IT COUNT over IT’S SHOW TIME because some of these bigger moments will be serious in a rational way to finalize something, rather than an emotional perk up before a “performance” to come. However, I imagine there’ll be lots of moments where I’ll start out with IT’S SHOW TIME, followed by MAKE IT COUNT, as a double mantra.

Penelope LePrevost in Darth Vader Costume for Equestrian

Have you geeks and nerds seen this? I’m sure the really hardcore ones have. Others probably not unless you paid attention to equestrian charity events.

On December 5th in Villepinte, France, world class equestrian show jumper Penelope LePrevost rode as Darth Vader in full costume! She was in the Darth horse role, if you will. 🙂

Now that’s a picture!

Furthermore, her daughter Erin also rode as Princess Leia.

Yes, the horse is strong in this one! 😉

I can’t find any video of the event online, but I wondered if the French went crazy as North Americans would have. They should do that in North America. It would bring down the house!

May the horse be with you, Penelope!

No, seriously! Cause if it weren’t, you’d be falling off the thing! lol
