Safe Journey, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 5"x7"
April 1 is no joke (April Fools Day) on Marco Island. April 1 signals a slowly growing peace as the frenetic activity of season comes to a close and our snowbirds begin their yearly migration north.
Traffic, activities and attendance will begin to slow as the heat of our sub-tropical climate increases and about two-thirds of our population begin to leave the island. Today's daily painting is symbolic of starting out on a new journey.
When I was sailing I always superstitiously tossed any change in my pocket into the sea to appease the Sea Gods. I've done that this morning for you. To those who may be making a journey, I wish you light winds and calm waters until your return.
