My favorite older member of the camp was this elderly man. His humility and sweet smile drew me to his side of the factory as soon as I saw him. His job was to fix the spinning wheels when they broke. He got so much joy out of showing us how the wheels work and how he is able to fix them from common problems. All of this was done without a single word spoken, just a smile. I wanted nothing more than to give him a great big hug, but a simple bow is probably more appropriate in his culture.

The thing that drew me to the topic of reading was the recent reading material I have been absorbed by. It’s the book “Think Like a Rock Star: How to Create Social Media and Marketing Strategies that Turn Customers into Fans” by Mack Collier, founder of #Blogchat. Yes, that’s the same Mack Collier who I have celebrated as a social media hero for creating the community of bloggers who provide each other encouragement, information, opinions and laughs each Sunday night.http://janiceperson.com/agriculture/ag-awareness/agricultural-magazines-farm-books/
This first picture you see here? That’s me going all fan-girl on Clay Walker – the Country Musician who is responsible for my love of country music. His songs first drew me in 20 years ago…
This weekend I had the pleasure of seeing Silje Nes at a cafe here in Santa Cruz. Silje Nes, from Norway but based in Berlin, plays beautiful and eccentric folk music, making use of a xylophone, marimba, flute and guitar. She also plays with a violinist and percussionist. Her music, a kind of makeshift symphony, drew me in, and I ended up perhaps a little too close to the stage trying to capture the moment.
