Exciting events!

My dear friends. I continue to be dazzled by the
story of this year. Even in my own head, running
it over it sounds fantastic -- the stuff of fairy tales,
but it isn't.

On Friday November 27, my painting of Tobias at the zoo
will make an appearance. City TV's Breakfast Television
But that's not all, the painting of that sweet boy is also
going to visit Real Life CTS TV on Wednesday December 2.

This is a big week. I'm trying to finish up all my
marking, and the commission I'm showing you
today, which is moving forward slowly given my
other commitments. Plus I'm giving a talk about
this superb year at the Don Valley Art Club
in Toronto on Friday night. So...

Time for bed again. It's another eight o'clock morning.
I've made a bit of progress on this commission piece,
and hope to advance quite a bit further tomorrow.
Meanwhile -- do the happy dance for me, and
imagine me doing it big time in my little corner
of the universe.

Have a hey!-life-is-great day.

Oh man and all I did was go to the dentist this morning.


Barbara you never cease to amaze and impress me. So glad to hear of these wonderful successes. You have even more to be thankful for now--if that could even be possible.

Congratulations !

Hi Melinda,

That's funny, I keep your beautiful face in mind, and immediately feel happy. Then I think about your gorgeous art and writing, and the world seems like a better place.

Thank you.

Hi Marcia,

I would love to go to dancing lessons.
Or as Lemon on 30 Rock says, "I want to go to there." Love that show.

Hi LeSan,

I just keep feeling over the moon excited, but I do need to get some sleep so I can handle the sustained level of joy. I think you made it happen, you and all my blog friends, and my friends and family here got me in the right space. Thanks to the universe.

Take care,

That is great! Enjoy, enjoy, Barbara! I danced for you yesterday, when I read this post but didn't have time to comment.
I am thrilled that I might be able to watch all this on the internet - aren't we lucky these days?!
