"… imagine! imagine!
the wild and wondrous journeys
still to be ours." ~ Mary Olive


Hello to you, my friend...

How can it be February already? This year is whizzing along. My mom just turned 87 and we have fun every day. She is a world champion cart pusher and keeps me company. I've also been studying Spanish grammar, something that I would have found dull when I was younger but now is a facinating puzzle. Here is a page from my notes. I feel like a turtle sometimes but I find that drawing helps me remember new things.


Wishing you all good things,

"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.




"I’m beginning to recognize that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead,

but something small, numerous and already here.

The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset.

Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row ~ Beau Taplin


Candy Kiss Box

"Love is, above all, the gift of oneself."  ~ Jean Anouilh

These tiny little boxes are just the right size to hold a kiss or two.

My Oil Paintings

I've also been oil painting as much as I can. If you would like to see more here is a link to my painting website.




Donations are most welcome.



"In fairy tales, power is rarely the right tool for survival anyway.

Rather the powerless thrive on alliances, often in the form of reciprocated acts of kindness —

from beehives that were not raided, birds that were not killed but set free or fed, old women who were saluted with respect.

Kindness sown among the meek is harvested in  crisis." ~ Rebecca Solnit
