She Kicks Butt

My One and Only Alias: No problem too immense or obstacle too insurmountable.

I rocked out Sydney Bristow again this Halloween, perhaps my final appearance ever as the super-duper CIA operative who was brought to the small screen by the now-famous Jennifer Garner in the top show “Alias.”

Just like so many things in life, I learn vicariously through fictional characters.  It’s fun and in some ways safe, avoiding undesirable feelings that may throw a curve that I wouldn’t be able to handle.  But more often than not these past few years, I’ve had to deal with some unexpected and at times aggravating things, which are really par for the course.  Thanks to lessons learned, experience, family support, sound spiritual counseling and sheer  imagination, I was able to shirk them aside and move forward.

I still find myself channeling my inner Sydney Bristow, although “Alias” (which also starred little known at the time Bradley Cooper) has long ended,  when I require a big push out of a problem or a weird funk.  It is as if to say if I must confront some inconvenient truths, then she couldn’t have come at a more opportune hour.
