Three Little Birds

Thanks to everyone who left such wonderful words of encouragement concerning my sinus surgery. It went sooooo well, and I felt your healing hands! Michael, my neighbor-surgeon, had scheduled my case for two hours, but he said that I was so 'gunked up' (my term, not his!) that it took 3 hours! YIKES!!!!! No wonder I sounded so horrible and felt pretty yucky most of the time too! C has been a most indulgent and caring nursemaid, and I know I'm going to owe him big time! Boy I hate being in debt to that guy! LOL Anyway, I was a bit wobbly and not feeling 100% when I first got home, so I opted for bed, but soon was asking for my cell and my laptop. But we have no wifi in the bedroom (my bad!). He also brought me my ipod, so I cranked up Solitaire and some Bob Marley. The first tune that I heard was "Three Little Birds"..........and oh so appropriate:

Rise up this mornin’

Smile with the risin’ sun

Three little birds

Sits by my door step

Singin’ sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true

Sayin’ ‘this is my message to you:

Don’t worry about a thing

Cuz Every little thing’s gonna be alright

Don’t worry

About a thing

Cuz every little thing’s

Gonna be alright'

You can hear Bob here and you can see a really funny video here. If you read down further, you will know that the voice belongs to Gilberto Gil, a Brazilian. I highly recommend you listen to the first Youtube first and then go to the second, as it will surely make you laugh....and that is good!

Oh, and one last thing, if you spend any time at all in my studio, you know that I'm very partial to the voices of Bob Marley and Leonard Cohen, the great sermonist Barbara Brown Taylor, and surface designer Jane Dunnewold for her wisdom and design pointers but most of all for the calming nature of her voice!

so, Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright!

Missed your comment from the 9th. Sorry =(
Please give Kristin my best regards. She's so intelligent that girl, and she looks gorgeous.
Hope you are feeling better today, and that the surgery also will give the result that you are hoping for.
I agree with Carol: Let C look after you as long as it will be needed!

I'm so glad the surgery went well, know you have been wanting to get that done for a long time now.

But also glad to see your big tour of Missouri (my home state) looks like you hit the high points along with my favorite, the Arch!
