Day 264 – New Friends

Art Apple - Day Two Hundred Sixty FourI am constantly amazed at the new friends I meet through twitter, facebook, and my blog.

I love meeting and connecting with new people. Yesterday I met a fellow artist and blogger who has created an amazing book using his art and his thoughts about dealing with life with AS – talk about a fellow traveler of life.

Recently I’ve been working with a new friend named Arish in efforts to raise awareness and funds for a new project we are working on with another friend Abdul who I met at the beginning of my Apples for AS project. More on this tomorrow! Please stay tuned – I’m so excited to share it with you all!

As a kid I spent a month each summer at Chimney Corners summer camp – as did my brothers and my mother before us. We sang camp songs and one of my favorites was:

“make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold”

It is sung in a round – like row, row your boat. I believe I am made rich by both – my old friends and my new…

Until tomorrow.


Day 264 was created in mixed media.

*** I asked Doug if he knew the song “Make New Friends” and he did not. However – I insisted he sing it with me in rounds. Beware – this is not something anyone would wish to witness – neither of us can carry a tune 🙂 – well maybe Doug can when he concentrates!
