“You should always know when you’re shifting gears in life. You should leave your era; it should never leave you.” The legendary African American opera singer, Leontyne Price, is quoted making this statement. It’s funny how reading a quote can trigger a thought. This made me think of when my husband attempted to teach me how to drive a stick shift. Before he actually took me for my first driving lesson, he taught me about the difference between an automatic and stick shift.
