Periwinkle August 17 2005 p.jpg

Good Karma day!

Last two nights came home to do editing of manuscript.
So getting up at 4:30 to walk Java, I was so tired.
So tired, that I left the keys in the house...

So what to do... continue the dog walk and call the lock smith.
Half way through the walk, ran into Kim - my wonderful dog walker
who had a spare key. Amen.. a terrible day with an expensive bill
now has turned into a good karma day. THANKS KIM!

To quote, Mary Chapin Carpenter - "I feel Lucky today!"

Well I woke up this morning stumbled out of my rack
I opened up the paper to the page in the back
It only took a minute for my finger to find
My daily dose of destiny, under my sign
My eyes just about popped out of my head
It said "the stars are stacked against you girl, get back in bed"

I feel lucky, I feel lucky, yeah
No Professor Doom gonna stand in my way
Mmmmm, I feel lucky today

Well I strolled down to the corner, gave my numbers to the clerk
The pot's eleven million so I called in sick to work
I bought a pack of Camels, a burrito and a Barq's
Crossed against the light, made a beeline for the park
The sky began to thunder, wind began to moan
I heard a voice above me saying, "girl, you better get back home"

But I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah
No tropical depression gonna steal my sun away
Mmmmm, I feel lucky today

Now eleven million later, I was sitting at the bar
I'd bought the house a double, and the waitress a new car
Dwight Yoakam's in the corner, trying to catch my eye
Lyle Lovett's right beside me with his hand upon my thigh
The moral of this story, it's simple but it's true
Hey the stars might lie, but the numbers never do

I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah
Hey Dwight, hey Lyle, boys, you don't have to fight
Hot dog, I'm feeling lucky tonight


Perwinkle, is one of my favorite boats. Also, my favorite picture
of the summer was of this boat.

Really beautiful image. The sun, the reflection - all of it.
