The day started with thunder, lightning, and rain. Yet I knew that Mary Star of the Sea had successfully protected the Island once more and that the hurricane in the Gulf was not coming here. In fact, by noon the sun was out and it was perfect walking around weather. But before that, I got to finish listening to the recorded version of Storms of Malhado while drinking tea and drawing. I loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to release it next month!
After that, my friend and I walked around both with and without the dog. We saw the pelicans and a very big red ship, saw beautiful historic houses, and even, in alleys that seemed too far away for this to be possible, saw Mary shining in the distance like a beacon.
