You are…

I remember reading once that you are what you see, what you feel, what you think, what you do, what you experience, what you read. This morning I am reading life is a verb by Patti Digh. The one line that speaks to me this moment is…write to remember.

I started this book a couple of weeks ago and then left it at random arts in Saluda, NC for the author to sign during a book tour. Yesterday, my friend Jean Ross brought the book to me after visiting her mountain retreat in Columbus, NC. I was elated to read the inscription that she wrote. It reads,
for doni-
may your days be filled with love, laughter, and meaning!
love, Patti Digh

During my trip to Saluda, NC with Janette Grassi and Jean Ross, we attended a woven book workshop at random arts in Saluda, NC. We love the creative spirit that owner and artist Jane Powell exudes. We all had a great time weaving fabrics and stories and learning new techniques.
