Late night and early start

I can't talk for long now because it is super late, and the
morning comes early tomorrow.  It's been an ideal day
today in Montreal.  I haven't had a chance to paint,
but I am feeling better, and couldn't be happier about
that.  I finished a Moleskine notebook today that I started
exactly a month ago. Tonight I'll share a couple of recent pictures.

(People think that living on the road
is a glamorous life.  Hotel food, eating out
at restaurants.  Wow -- we homebodies
think.  But the drawing above
details the standard fare of people
away from home -- fries -- not so good.)

(We spent some time today in the lobby, because
we were waiting to get into the room.
I couldn't resist trying to draw the place,
an odd collection of palm trees, strangely shaped
chairs and lamps.)

Thank you to everyone who has been wishing me well.  Your kind
thoughts are having a great effect.  I feel almost normal.

Have a loving-your-friends day.
