Hello darlings! I hope all of you had a good week. I wasn’t sure what I was going to post about tonight, but it was provided for me. :)
Thursday I drove to St Augustine to pick up a piece from a show that ended. I stopped at my friend Michelle’s house for a cup of tea and a chat. I wrote a post about her in the past. if you didn’t read it and care to do so here is the link: Cutting edge. She is a wonderful artist and her cottage is magical. If I remember right it is a long post, so if you are in a hurry skip it.
Do you remember the recent post about the painting I entered in a tactile show. Here is the link to it: The Journey..the story of a painting. In case you forgot it was the story about the tactile show and the students from the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind.
Anyway, in conversation I told Michelle about “the energy” of that painting and what is happening with the image of it from here and the art site. When I returned home I emailed her the link to the post about The Journey. Apparently, she forwarded it to one of the ladies involved with the show…the one I talked about in the post that told me about the children and the painting and we both ended up getting teary eyed. Her name is Patty and she emailed Michelle the photos from the show, and Michelle forwarded them to me. Now I want to share them with all of you because from all of your comments on the post..you were just as touched as I!
First…I am putting a thumbnail of the painting (in case you forgot), but most importantly two pictures that Patty sent of the blind students feeling / “seeing” the painting at the show. Be prepared to get teary eyed because I sure did! If you wish to enlarge just click on the images.

One can only wonder what the children were imagining! I will say if you have not read the post about the journey you probably will not truly understand how beautiful these pictures were to me. Needless to say, I cried again. I am still looking forward to meeting the family that “adopted” the painting. That may happen soon… I’ll keep you updated. :)
That is all from me tonight. I am on Drayton Island and as I told you it is a challenge to do anything on the computer here…slow, slow, slow! I can’t wait to tell you about the fireflies and other things we saw here on this full moon night!! A night of moon shadow magic!
I will be around to see everyone soon…I haven’t even had time to respond to all of your comments, but I promise I will! I keep all of you tucked in a special place in my heart!!
Ta Ta for now dear hearts..may we all forward a loving kindness, even if only a needed smile!
Love and light to all of you,
Post Note: I’ve had several ask if the work here is mine. ‘Tis all mine, good and bad…which I understand is totally subjective . :) I guess I need to note that on my home page.
