joy, joy, joy ....

happy, happy, happy .... 

my groovy mail man knocked on my door today .... the dog and i bounded to the door to greet him .... he had a box for me that i'd been waiting, waiting, waiting for ...... you see, there's a book ... life is a verb  ...... that isn't actually due out til early september ....but it is already in some bookstores ... i know it is SOMEWHERE ...... but the last five book stores i've been in? i've asked for it .... cause other people have it in their stores ... but no ... not in durham, not in hilton head, not in atlanta (3 different book stores!!!) .... but they all offered to order it ....including the b and n i went to after lunch TODAY..... no, i don't want to order it .... i want touch it, hold it, feel it, love it ..... 

girl.beck.artist was with me at b and n ....  when i said, do you have life is a verb? .... girl.beck.artist said, isn't life a noun? ...... so, when not much later, back home, i danced into the family room touching, holding, feeling, and loving my new book, girl.beck.artist was stunned that i had made such a thing seemingly appear from thin air .... magical qualities in this book, i told her..... 

so ..... all that said ... please, please, please, do yourself a HUGE favor ... and go order this book .... it is so, so, so lovely ... this brilliant, funny, groovy chick, patti digh, wrote it .... it will make you think and feel and dream and hope and remember and live .....it is about living life intentionally .... if you are a regular on my blog, you've been directed to her blog before .... it is called 37 days .... and well worth bookmarking and visiting every day .....

but before you go there, go to amazon here ..... and order the book ..... it is the perfect gift to give yourself ..... the nicest bit for me? my book was a gift .... a gift from patti digh, the author .... she digs me, you see .... she even put one of my most favorite pieces of MY art on page 23 .... 23 is almost as nice a number as 37 ....

happy, happy, happy .....
