“The self is a calm stable center surrounded by a continuous changing sea. Merge with yourself and be ready for any emergent sea.“

Play It Forward Bookmark for Dorcille – 2″ x 5.5″ Watercolor & Black Staedtler Fine Art Pen
Learn more about the “Play it Forward” game on my post here. Dorcille and her husband own Belle Starr Marina, here on Lake Eufaula. That’s where the fish comes from. Dorcille misunderstood the post and is not able to play it forward, but she has been my friend for 20 years and I’m sending the bookmark anyway. (Even though she tried to refuse it.)
Coretta Scott King – Pioneer of Civil Rights
April 27, 1927 – January 30, 2006 – Coretta Scott was born in Heiberger, Alabama and raised on the farm of her parents, Bernice and Obadiah Scott, in Perry County, Alabama. She was exposed at an early age to the injustices of life in a segregated society. She walked five miles a day to attend the one-room Crossroad School in Marion, Alabama, while the white students rode buses to an all-white school closer by. Young Coretta excelled at her studies, particularly music, and was valedictorian of her graduating class at Lincoln High School. She graduated in 1945 and received a scholarship to Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. More here.
