Strut? But Can I?

"Lynne, I'm a writer.... I'm not a model"- Carrie protests before she agrees to be a "model-non-model" in an episode of Sex and the City. I'm kind of feeling the same way right now.

Macon's Own Sabrina Sikora

Macon has had many talented people come out of her fine boundaries – Otis Redding, Little Richard, The Allman Brothers, the list goes on – and we all know who they are. But none are quite the same as Ms. Sabrina Sikora. To be very honest, I was a little star struck myself the first time I met her and still star struck again when she actually responded to my email request for an interview. That may seem a little odd to some of you – because, frankly, she is a year younger than me and she and I have many mutual friends. Perhaps it is like that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie says “being beautiful is like having a rent controlled apartment overlooking the park – completely unfair and usually bestowed to those who deserve it the least.” If anyone I know is close to that analogy, it would be Sabrina Sikora – except for the part about not deserving it.
