Just listen..

“"There Is A Voice Inside Of You
That Whispers All Day Long,
"I Feel That This Is Right For Me,
I Know That This Is Wrong."
No Teacher, Preacher, Parent, Friend
Or Wise Man Can Decide
What's Right For You- Just Listen To
The Voice That Speaks Inside."”

Shel Silverstein

Good morning sweet sunshine! Shel Silverstein is right here....who else can tell us such truth but the voice from within...and what an appropriate image...listening to the shells from the ocean deep. I am with you all the way about milking the month of August for ALL that it is worth....before I dig into my responsibilities for school, I am taking each day and doing something FUN!!! I know that you are as well....I am also counting the days until the new little fairy arrives...you will be dancing as skillfully as Tea Rat is dancing to "UNCLE RAT"!!!! He is practicing for the big BIRTHDAY PARTY!

Thank you for visiting my little whim on discovering how to animate my scribbles!!!

Bisous, Anita
