Thank you to everyone who purchased one of my books, passed on the link or even just popped into check it out. I'm feeling very grateful this morning. This little book of mine has been stirring around in my head for so long that when others understand and appreciate what I'm trying to do, I'm just full of emotion right now.
A busy weekend ahead for the Kilmer Family. I'm not teaching but I have lots on my To Do List. I'm trekking to Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale next week. My long time readers know how very much I love teaching at Debbie's store. I'm really looking forward to it! I'll be cutting boards and papers, printing handouts and gathering supplies this weekend.
Some quotes in honor of Dia de Los Muertos:
"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." -Groucho Marx
"From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity."- Edvard Munch
"Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them."-George Eliot
"While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die."-Leonardo daVinci
"As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death."-Leonardo daVinci
"There's a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out."- Lou Reed, "Magic and Loss"
