I gave a 20 minute speech this evening to my beloved Magic Wand Collective sisters. I’ve never delivered a speech like that before, unless my high school Valedictorian address counts. I don’t think it was as long, nor nearly as heartfelt.
I didn’t have it memorized, so I had to read (with my “now that I’m over 40” reading glasses.) But I read with emotion. Perhaps one day I’ll deliver a memorized speech. Never say never, as Justin Bieber would say. (And I concur.)

P.S. All you proofreader/editor/writer types…remember that this was written to be read, not for publication. I’d have to do some more work if it was going to be put into print for general consumption.
