Gail was kind enough to snap a pic of us, but not before I snapped

“If it costs you your peace, it’s too expensive.” ~ Unknown     Annie Bassoni cracks me up. Let her light up your day like she lights up mine and so many others in her sphere of influence.

“Don’t be too quick to interpret the moment. Just keep quiet. My encouragement would always be: never think anything is against you, everything is blessing. Why should it be different? Just be quiet. Let it all work itself out.” ~ Mooji     Stacy recently discovered the Japanese good fortune figurine Maneki-neko, translated as ‘beckoning cat.’ She was so enamored with hers that she gave me one, too. He’s solar

“You will never look into the eyes of someone God does not love. Always be kind.” ~ Unknown     And you thought you were hot today! It’s still August in Kentucky, and it’s still hot and beautiful. Now, go enjoy the Sturgeon moon, and my your pony never froth.

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” ~ Mark Twain     I didn’t hear a thing until Mama Heis said, “There’s someone calling your name,” as she pointed toward the wall.

“Do small things with great love.” ~ Unknown     I offer this photo not because it’s excellent, but because I’m still riding the high that was Friday night’s music extravaganza.

Adjust accordingly.” ~ Unknown     I got home so late last night that I just didn’t have the energy to talk about the incredible evening I’d had. I posted my brief photo of Marlon Hurst at his stereo and a couple of folks speculated that I had been

“Don’t worry. Be happy.” ~ Bobby McFerrin     I’m too tired to go into what an incredible evening I’ve had. I’ll save it for tomorrow. For now, let this photo tease you a bit. It involves the Brothers Hurst, a lot of music, a lot of laughter, and more love than words  can express. Squeeeeeeee.

“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.” ~ Hans Selye     Well, our tiny heroine was back at the track this evening for the weenie dog race redux. I got sick yesterday and wasn’t sure I’d be there, but daggone it, I was determined. I should have maybe shared some of that determination with ‘Lil Bit. In her defense, this was her first

“Here’s what I thought when I went out tonight to visit with the stars. I thought, I feel sad for those humans who live in a binary world, everything is either good or bad, right or wrong. Tonight, my outside world was misty, shaded and magical. As others have said before me, there is a great cloud of unknowing. I’m comfortable with that. That’s what I thought.” ~ Ken Bailey
