Once again, THANK YOU, MICHELLE FABIO @http://www.facebook.com/GoatBerries for posting a link and a “plug” to my “giving voice to what lives in a garden” project! As most of my readers know, Michelle Fabio is a supporter of TLLG’s endeavors and vice-versa!
The image above today’s tumblr posting features a goatie figurine that “lives” on a book shelf above my desk. As some of you may remember, I initially got the figurine to put on my book shelf to remind me of the inspiration that I’ve received from Michelle Fabio, whom I initially ”met” in cyberspace when I discovered her blog, Goat Berries, whilst I was doing research for the origins of the expression, “get your goat,” for a blog post I was writing about Ardith Mae in April of 2011.
In any event, I subsequently ”became acquainted” with Michelle Fabio in cyber-space because of her great content and her reaching out to help others, which I’ve discussed on Blogger, including posts that you may refer to by clicking here as well as here.
I mention Michelle Fabio again today, because, like Shirley Bovshow, a garden designer, television host, and speaker (and is someone I’ve only met via a garden writers’ discussion group, as well as “on” occasional exchanges via twitter), who completely took me by (pleasant) surprise, on August 13th 2012, when she posted a link to my Campaign on her Facebook Page and stated, “Please watch Patricia’s videos. She is a gifted artist and poet, ” Michelle Fabio also put up a posting with a link to my indiegogo project on her Facebook Page for Goat Berries.
Why post this now? Well, tomorrow August 21st is National Senior Citizens Day, and since my “giving voice to what lives in a garden project’s,” mission is to recognize the senior population, it seems apropos to share my information here on TLLG’s tumblr!
SO, thanks for listening, and I hope, even if you don’t support TLLG’s indie project, that you will support the seniors in your community and remember, ”The very old, they are miracles like the just born; close to the end is precious like close to the beginning.”
