Quotes by Judy Keeslar Santamaria  (?)

“She loaded 'Gypsy', her favorite Fleetwood Mac song, into the CD player and remembered dancing to the magical rhythms and harmonizing with her mother so long ago, virtually levitating as though the song lifted them, weightless as roof angels, above the living room floor.”
Judy Keeslar Santamaria, Jetty Cat Palace Café

“Sometimes we don’t understand certain things, and all we can do is give life our best and keep moving forward. Maybe someday we’ll look back, and it’ll all make sense.”
Judy Keeslar Santamaria, Jetty Cat Palace Café

“Where does music go when it fades away?”
Judy Keeslar Santamaria, Jetty Cat Palace Café

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver

“Writing is a long process of introspection; it is a voyage toward the darkest caverns of consciousness, a long, slow meditation. I write feeling my way in silence, and along the way discover particles of truth, small crystals that fit in the palm of one hand and justify my passage through this world.”
Isabel Allende, Paula
