Crazy and fun

What an insane week.  They happen.  Too much to do, too
much to think about and complete.  I am eternally grateful
to my friends, both artists, collectors, and family who pull
 me through these busy spates with boundless
enthusiasm, kindness, fascinating discussions, their own
 beautiful work,novels to read and even --- dinner.  Warm
 food on a plate at the end of the day can seem like a divine
experience when the day has been especially long, and demanding.

Thank you to all.  I think the benediction of dinner, or
salad, or breakfast in the case of my big painting, is worth
all the fuss in restaurants, all the foodies having infinite
discussions about the absolute best of the best of something
like a Veggie burger, and every special and ordinary meal
prepared around the world.  Last night we celebrated
a friend's birthday, at a very low key, Vietnamese restaurant.
The food was inexpensive, and delicious, and a wonderful way
to end the week.  Tonight Steven made a wonderful dinner of
salmon, roasted baby potatoes, steamed green beans, salad
and pumpkin tarts for dessert.  Yum.

Hey, Barbara, crazy and insane are going around! Seems to be endemic to the entire North American Continent!

Always lovely drawings, my dear. You're a trooper. I would've loved to have tasted Steven's delicious dinner. Wow!

Hope things are settling down a bit for you.

Warm hugs!

Hi Melinda,

Thank you. I'd love it if you came for one of Steven's amazing dinners. But if you make it all the way to Toronto, you'll have to have more than one. Woo Hoo!!! That will be fun.

Hi Liza,

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday. I'm sure things were very busy for you right up until Christmas Eve as they were for me. I miss you already.

Happy New Year.
