Hi beautiful women,
It's soon approaching Father's Day, (I know it's a bit early for this blog but it's important to me) one of my favorite days, as I spent the first thirty three years of my life with my very special father on this day. My father, Preston, was not interested in material things and not tethered to this world. In fact, when you gave him a gift, he would give it away. He was the most beautiful and generous human I have known. - Especially for someone who owned only art supplies and books (not even a car). He often would give "all" the money in his pocket to a homeless person saying to me, "Robin, wouldn't you rather your last twenty dollars make a big impact in the world today? That money will not change your life much today, but it will immensely change the life of someone who has nothing." He only knew love!
On the day that my father passed, his sketch book was lying open next to his bed turned to a page with a quote written by his hand that changed my life-
"A poor man shames us all... Do you like my song? I will sing it for you."

At that moment, I realized that all of us have something to give no matter how big or small and we should always start our day with "how may I serve?"
I was blessed with such an amazing spirit filled guru I called "Dad" and he left me full of love and light.
Happy Father's Day Dad and "Thank You". May you run and never tire!
- Love, Pearl
Happy Father's Day Thovas (my brother). You are an awesome Dad too and you have the greatest son ever!
- Love, Your sister Robin.
"Man gets tired, spirit don't.
Man surrenders, spirit won't.
Man crawls, spirit flies.
Spirit lives when man dies.
Man seems, spirit is.
Man dreams, spirit lives.
Man is tethered, spirit is free.
What spirit is, man can be.
What spirit is the man can be...."

"Your beauty is familiar your voice is like a key. It opens up my soul and torches up a fire inside of me. Your coat is made of magic and around your table angels play. I will cry when you go away."
