“What a time to be alive!
There are no ideas that are totally tapped down,
no ideology is adequate to the task of this time.
So it is a time for really alive, innovative people.
I have my oar in the water with everyone else.
I am rowing in the direction I can….
It is great to be alive!”
– Fran Peavey
Auntie Faye’s 4″ x 6″ Postcard – Without the Sock Monkey
The sock monkey is actually a little town marketing thing we got wrapped up in. I don’t begrudge the folks at Auntie Faye’s for their decision to take it out for the postcard. I’m just happy that I know how! Yay Photoshop and Tara Reed’s tutorial that I purchased a couple years ago.
I love today’s quote! It came from Ruth Fishel’s little book Wrinkles Don’t Hurt – Daily Meditations on the Joy of Aging Mindfully. I love that book!!
