Marmee Medicine

For some reason it was a really tough day.

Then Marmee hopped up onto her stool just as I was closing up the studio for the day.


It’s one of her favorite perches, and she’s always on the lookout for birds…


I grabbed the camera, which always draws me closer to her. It’s almost as if I can experience the world through her as I peer through the lens…


Through her I can see all the beautiful flowers, hear the twittering of the baby robins under the deck, smell the sea on the breeze…


And after just ten minutes there with Marmee do you want to know something?


I began to relax. Everything really is going to be OK after all. Thanks to my daily dose of Marmee…


‘Til next time,
