Quote of the Day: Be brave enough to live creatively. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can only get there by hard work, by risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful: Yourself.
Alan Alda (1936 – ) Quoted in The Educators Book of Quotes, ed John Blaydes, Corwin Press, 2003, p208 found on The Adventure of Life blog.
Millie and Willie Cottonpoly sharing an anniversary muffin and chocolates
Millie and Willie Cottonpoly, my sock puppet creations, did so well inspiring and sharing their story through the April Blogging From A to Z Challenge, 2013, that I felt it was time for them to celebrate their anniversary. The Cottonpoly’s became a pair May 20, 1968, a little less than a year after they met in July 1967. They have become tightly woven into the fabric of each other’s lives ever since.
Willie: July 5, 1967, was the best day of my life.
Millie: (smiling) I didn’t know what to make of you.
Willie: I got so nervous, I could barely remember my own name.
Millie: You did seem like a man with two left feet.
Willie: All I could think about is how much I wanted to do the two-step with you, Millie.
Millie: Oh, Willie. You add a spark to my life, that’s for sure.
Willie: Let’s dive into this muffin while it’s still hot.
Millie: (blushes) It’s still hot with you, Willie.
(Willie kisses Millie’s head and wishes her a Happy Anniversary.)
Much is happening in the creative world of the Cottonpoly’s and their creator. Spring is finally here in Minnesota. Another school year is ending. Summer beckons with many new adventures. I finally got out on the bike with the Biker Chef, read about it at Ride off the Page!
Go. Create. Inspire!
