In my post last night I wrote about the work of Thea Alvin.
I figured since I was talking about her and linking some of her videos that I should drop her an email. Turns out she either has a email enabled phone or was near a computer because she got right back to me.
Turns out it was her birthday. I felt bad for taking her away from whatever she was doing, but I was glad she was ok with the post I made. I told her I hoped she was surrounded by good people and good food. Given what I have seen of her videos I imagine she has a number of friends who are very much salt of the earth folks. I could be wrong, but it takes a certain person to stomp in mud barefoot in the cold rainy weather we have been having in new england recently. And in my limited experience with this type of person....I imagine them to be great folks.
This makes the second Thea I know and both live unconventional lives doing the things they love to do. Maybe its in the name?
