Hi! To all my great IMA family! I feel close to all you folks as I hear from you and about you. And I know by now the wheels are turning and the Steam Shows are all planned and many of you are packing your 'duds' and anxious to get on the road to enjoy another summer of great events, wonderful people; and don't forget when you get back and settle down a bit, get that pen out and let me hear from you. Now, mind I'm counting on it. We've got to keep IMA going.

I came across the following inspirational writing and I know you will profit from it. It is called:

A New Day

This is the beginning of a new day. I have been given this day to use as I will. I can waste it - or use it for good!
When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever
Leaving in its place whatever I have traded for it.
I pledge to myself that it shall be GAIN. NOT LOSS; GOOD, NOT EVIL; SUCCESS, NO
FAILURE In order that I shall not regret the price I paid for this day!!!

I think this is great and I'm going to try and read it each morning. Maybe you should too, we'll all be better for it.

I have been taking art lessons for years and paint a lot of pictures for my family and friends. Not only do I profit in art from my wonderful teacher, Jeanie Moyer. but she gives much more than the proper way to do this work or hobby. She has an Indian ancestry background, and I just love her philosophy on many subjects. She not only can do any medium of the arts, but she gives much of her wisdom and caring to each of us. She, to me, is a great Blessing. I value her talents, philosophy and friendship. I got the above writing, A New Day, from her and wanted to share it with you. Hope you enjoy it and are inspired.

The following letter comes from JAMES BYRD, 1310 Via De Luna, Pensacola Beach, Florida 32561. 'We have good friends in Richmond, Texas, whom we have known for years, E. D. Lander and his wife. We became good friends the best way, in church, when we all lived in Houston, Texas. E. D. is a mechanical engineer by degree from Texas A & M.
