Love is in the Air

Well it has been sometime since I posted, which to me is a good sign......that means I have been busy!!! which I have. I am working on so many projects at the same time. I have done many small encaustic works and I have been working on a self portrait series, PLUS getting proposals out for shows with & with-out lectures or presentations on the Because of Wichita series. I have also been looking for a part time job as well. I really hope that my open studio on June 21st goes very well ( financially and attendance ).

Olympia is blooming more everyday. I have cut several types of very colorful flowers, their smell reminds me of all the years I lived in New Orleans.............SIGH

It seems that most people I know are finding partners or they are getting married....LOVE IS IN THE AIR.

till next time......

False Spring

Today I have A False Spring, from Ernest Hemingway's A Movable Feast. brewing in my head. The first paragraph is fitting for this moment in time, for me, since I would like to pack away woolen sweaters and socks, but, given the weather here Mother Nature would surely laugh in my face. My favorite sentence is the last in the paragraph " People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.";
I also have a news brief from San Fran. About a dead whale under the pier The news reporter, to me, came across as rather cold about it. Question......Could the whale have gotten stuck because the pier was there in the first place???? another humankind contribution to the demise of harmless and fascinating creatures.
