We arrived safely at THO at about 1:00 and shortly after, I had a visit from someone who played a more than significant role in my life. Kiki is the sort of person that we need in our life, who believe in you when you not exactly the greatest human inspiration. Who know how to inspire you to be better, even if it is a little kick in the ass that is required. She opened doors for me in a time of my life when it seemed that I only faced closed ones. It was just awesome to see her!
As a way of paying forward the kindnesses that I experienced all those years ago I made a fast stop to do a small pay forward. Getting through is not always easy for brilliant and creative people. It is sad – at least it is for me – our talented artists should be able to make a living from their talent! Do you agree?
After Kiki’s visit, I had to skip to Kingston after to pick up a few things and also stop to see Leo who is coming this morning to put up the eves trough.
We had a bite to eat and after dinner Tiny House Ontario was just starting to warm up so Hj and I took turns playing the McNally Strumstick (G). This is such a great little instrument! We are both not musicians and yet just like McNally promises you can’t hit a wrong note and right away you feel like you might be able to do it. The guitar I have only wishes I could play it as well!
What can I say, today at THO there was music of the heart.
Thanks for the lovely comments, Laura. It’s wonderful to see you so happy, and writing because you WANT to. Hope to make it back to the tiny house sometime in 2013. I met the chicken lady… Kiki
