April 17 Birthday time

Dance as though no one is watching you,
Love as though you have never been hurt before,
Sing as though no one can hear you,
Live as though heaven is on earth.

Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

Just when the caterpillar thought life was over, It became a butterfly.

We left St Simons Island today and made it as far as Charleston SC. We hope to arrive NYC by Saturday night.

We celebrated my birthday starting Wednesday night with dinner on Jekyl Island, delicious breakfast this morning, delightful dinner at Hanks in Charleston, and a load of gifts from my beloved including the Bible on CD by Johnny Cash, a brass wall clock, a floating turtle and a wall hanging.

I have been blessed today. I'm too blessed to be stressed!
