A great mail day...
And I wasn't even here!
While I was out of town I received a couple of wonderful packages, the first one from my friend Dot in Australia. The originator of the Dotee Doll - how cool is that?
This was a trade - one of my beaded dolls for a large and small Dotee doll, I couldn't be more pleased. To have this waiting for me when I got home - after the week I had - was such a joy and a blessing.
Just look at those faces! Could they be any more precious?
Thank you so much Dot for creating these for me - they will both have a place of honor in my home, I absolutely love them!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
