Listening to My Heart

"Health is the greatest gift, contentment is the greatest wealth, a trusted friend is the best relative,
a liberated mind is the greatest bliss."   - Buddha

I love sharing a truth with you all......and I think that quote is a truth.  It has been an amazing day, we didn't get much sleep last night because of the gig.  We had to get up early, because Rick had an author's event......honestly, I could have stayed home, and my body so needed the rest......but for some reason I felt compelled to go.  Many good things happened today, including seeing old friends.....but the best thing that happened.......I  got to spend time with Judge Helen Shores Lee.

Her father was a trailblazer in the Civil Rights movement. She and her sister, Barbara have written a book about him, and their lives growing up in Birmingham during the sixties.  Honestly, there should be a book written about the Judge.

She was an absolute delight, I was so glad that I listened to my heart and went with Rick to the event.
The book is available on Amazon, the title  The Gentle Giant of Dynamite Hill.  I urge you to pick up a copy and read it.

Wishing you all a peaceful Saturday night, a restful Sunday.


  1. Great quote by Buddha, it's true...

    I'm glad that you listened to your heart and that you felt good about going to the gig.

    That judge sounds like a remarkable lady.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Love the Buddha quote and I also love how listening to that small voice in our hearts has us going in directions we didn't even imagine. Wait, now I sound like Buddha! Ha! Glad you were able to go and enjoy a fun evening!

  3. After reading about the Judge on your husband's blog and now yours, I've written down her book to add to my list. And to think, I might never have heard of her book if not for blogs!
