I've been working with my new camera---boy do I like it. Look at the photos of my Fortuny pillows.......

Crisp and clear with all of the detail. And the software does all of the focusing.

Over the past few weeks I've been on a quest to become more open and accepting of what is offered, perhaps it is simply to be more aware of the abundance that surrounds me. This is not some new quest--but this time something clicked. And things have indeed been opening up. I WON ONE OF "LITTLE AUGURY'S" GIVE AWAYS OF HOWARD SLATKIN'S NEW BOOK...Thank you Gaye and Howard!!! Plus the $700 camera for $200 and Amazon double shipped my order of water filters for my coffee maker!! (They do not want the extra shipment back)
My college room mate called me after many, many, many years of silence (not of my making). But all is not just peachy. I've also been given MANY opportunities to revisit decisions from the past. I would classify them as very counterproductive negative decision or ways in which I dealt with various circumstances. It's as if some one were checking to see if I were able to make more fruitful positive choices....I definitely am, finally, making some progress. Life is such a crazy journey.
I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings, as I have been dealing with the absolutely most difficult client of my 25 years in business. I'm just waiting for the breakthrough. We'll see. This one difficult transaction has made me so grateful for all of the many, many wonderful people I have met in this business and the ease with which most sales have been completed.

Jones can't wait to get to work tomorrow either.......
Be well.

  1. Dear Mary,

    I am so happy that you won Howard's book from Gaye. He sent me a signed copy and I was thrilled beyond! here is my interview with him if you want to take a look.

    Your words really resonated with me today. I talked with a long time friend who now lives in Florida today. Interesting, that we discussed some of the very same issues you mentioned!
