Ok, so I'm messing with a famous quote there. The original is here. Events of the past couple of weeks have made my thoughts return again and again to this fragment and meditate on it. And a reggae song has been going through my head too, "Don't worry about a thing. Say every little thing's gonna be all right." So I wanted to quick shout out to some folks that have been making it look like I'm just doing the backstroke off the shores of my island – while they've been paddling like mad on the mainland on my behalf.
and Michelle Jackson
Thanks girls!!!! And smooches.
Oh, and in keeping with the island theme… the photo above illustrates what happens when Marianne has nothing to do and lots of paper scraps laying on the table in front of her. I give you, "Prima Island" by Marianne Walker.
Not that I'm on an island – nope Connecticut, though small, is definitely NOT an island. It just feels good to know I've got people. 🙂
And I'll be back on the road this week…see you at Art & Soul in Hampton, VA!!!
P.S. MIL (and SIL!) are doing just fine.
