Some of my Favorite Things...And Leaving on a Jet Plane


(I could find no name to credit this photo with, but here is the link to where I got it:
Go Here).
Most of you probably don't know that I am a HUGE Jimmy Buffett fan. I met him after a show when I was a teenager and he was darling. His songs cheered me up when I was young though many dark days, he saved me, really from being a very depressed person, and I would say he started me on my spiritual journey, though he may laugh if he heard me say that. It is the joy and humor in his songs that spoke to me and his deep love of the sea. I was at a client's house today and happened upon a concert he was giving for free on the Gulf Coast, I have not listened to Jimmy for years, but this show reminded me why I love him so. I just read his profile on his MySpace page and it is simple words like this from Jimmy:"You have to take the best from whatever the situation is and go on. That's the whole point of the music to me." Read more: http://www.myspace.com/jimmybuffett#ixzz0tRL8YyOx, that helped me so much when I was young. I love you Jimmy and I always will. I was a parrothead before there were parrotheads :-).
I am leaving for Portland Oregon, and this is my last post for a while. I will possibly post a few times while there, and I will visit your blogs if I can, but my time there will be spent helping my mom, so if I don't visit you for a while, know that I am thinking of you. Peace and Love.
Prayers and happy thoughts appreciated. XOXO

Been a Buffet fan since '72, lucky enough to see him in '79.

I hope things go well with your mother.

Thinking of you in PDX, hoping you get a chance to enjoy the art there,see the bridges lit up at night and know you are in the right place right now. Oh, I bought ...The Money Game, you intrigued me by what it's done for you and your well-being...

Hey, I understand about JB completely. Believe it or not Kenny Loggins jumpstarted mine..."Leap of Faith." (LOL) and I did get to meet him and spend some time with him. Long, great story...

Anyway, I hope you are having a good visit. I sent your package out yesterday (22nd) so hope it arrives safely. Enjoy. Hugs and love and all good things. J
