15 Days of Sand....

Dear Folks,

Hearing from several of you that the blog site has not been updated has definitely renewed my interest in keeping up.

Ahhh...the lovely Blue Moon night..I waited so long and patiently for the baby to be born...but she had other plans and waited until late on that Sunday night to join this lovely colorful world.

I was here on the Island by then and sharing in the music and storytelling of the festival as Kristin and Abe spent the day in the hospital waiting for her birth.

I believe the moment of her birth we were singing 'Let the Circle Be Unbroken,' which will always make me think of her. So Miss Holly Erika Homan is here to share our lives. We all welcome her with open arms and hearts.

Since the first of June it has been a whirlwind of getting settled once again here with Philip...unpacking, reconnecting, visting, working...

The schedule is wonderful for the summmer...I work three days a week in the shop and those same evenings we have ghost and history walks as well as the Opry. Philip and I are taking turns sharing stories this year. We have beach walks and late night strolls...I have had bread baking class, weddings, and just simply peacefulness.

I'll try to keep you all well informed...dont' forget about Sunday passage...soon to be posted on the web site as well!
