Are you still wondering what’s on the other side of this big camera? They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, I think a few words can create thousands of pictures. I worked with a pretty cool film director Randy Young of TAP Productions to pull together this short segment for TT Patton. He started with only a few words…
Have you made a difference
Spread some joy
Had a thought
Have you cared enough for someone to say
I love you
Have you written lately?

I’m playing Motown music in the shop this week. Why? My husband Jesse and I spent a couple of days in Saugatuck, MI. We ate breakfast in a cool spot that was playing the sounds of Motown. Jesse never stopped moving his shoulders to the beat. I’ve noticed when people walk in the shop they immediately begin to sing or move their shoulders. Yesterday a guy walked in and I was singing I Heard it Through the Grapevine by Gladys Knight and the Pips and he joined in as a Pip. It was fun, but we’re not going on the road anytime time soon.

I decided this morning that I really don’t like the game Words With Friends on smart devices. It became an addiction when I started to play with multiple people at once. I couldn’t eat dinner without thinking about what word to play to get the most points. But something always seemed a bit odd to me. Even though I was playing this intense word game with someone online, when they walked into the room with me there was no mention of it. And even more annoying, I never heard them use the words they played. So either I forfeited my games for “untimely” play, or I simply got beaten. Regardless of how it ended, my days of playing are over.
I believe that REAL words with friends are shared over dinner, or walking in a park or even on the telephone. But the best way to share words with friends is to write the words down on paper and mail it to them. Personalize the cards with your name or initials and they will never forget who wrote such a personal note. Even when they lose their smart devices, they’ll be left with lasting words….that are always timely.
