On April 1st it will be Easter and the famous Fool’s day. On April Fool’s day in Ireland, a common practical joke was to send someone to deliver a note by way of several people who kept him going on to someone new until the last person opened the note that read “send the fool further.” In many places, these ‘fool’s errands’ would be accompanied by a verse for the recipient which said “don’t you laugh, and don’t you smile, send the gowk another mile.” A gowk is a Celtic word for cuckoo, a gullible or naive person. It was also a day of celebration in honor of Lod, the Celtic God of humor. The people took delight in anticipating spring with fun, frivolity and foolishness – usually at the expense of their friends. There was also dancing and merry making of all sorts.
I can promise you that the note in the April newsletter is no joke however there will be some fun involved. In the next installment of The Inner Circle I will reveal some amazing things. I hope you have signed up so that you do not miss it.

In We Will Get There one of the themes is a very real issue facing Perdido Key even today. The loss of land and change to the horizon. In the book, Krystal fights and wins but in reality the fight was lost years ago.
What we have to remember is that change is inevitable. It is how we react that counts. All we can do is fight when we can and accept the change when we can’t control it.
It breaks my heart to see the monstrous condos line the shore when I top the bridge headed out to Perdido. I have my memories. No one can change that. Home is a place but it is in our hearts as well.
Where is your home? Has it changed in significant ways?
