INSPIRATION: Refuse To Fall Down...

Keep going. Keep moving. Keep trying, no matter what. There are those moments when we have to cry out for help, when we need to summon the spirit from within us to rise above our circumstances and fears. We are here to be better and to pass it on. Sometimes it's not always easy, but that's ok because most things are truly possible. Stand up.

"Action is the normal completion of the act of will which begins as prayer. That action is not always external, but it is always some kind of effective energy."

Elizabeth Catlett: Singing Their Songs, 1992, Lithograph on paper, 15 ¾ x 13 ¾, Purchased with funds donated in memory of Florence Davis by her family, friends, and the Women’s Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts

Dreams of A Shrimp Po' Boy: Simple Pleasures From The Local Waters

Wishing for a Shrimp Po' Boy but ended up with a Shrimp Sandwich. Still delicious and just as reminiscent. Dreams can come true. We throughly enjoyed local Mayport shrimp fried to perfection on a fresh French roll with lettuce, tomatoes and a special sauce. Eyes closed, smiling faces; a good day for homestyle love.
