Looking back on the decade, and forward to the future

Pisa, Italy in December, 2009
Today we had another (the third) family party for the season.
Today it was brunch with frighteningly good pastries, cheeses,
champagne and orange juice, and of course coffee.  And
presents!  How wonderful!  I so love my family.  They are
kind, and generous, and over the top funny.  So it was great.

Thinking back on the past 10 years, they have been the best
years of my life in many ways.  I've traveled internationally
for art shows, met wonderful new friends, been interviewed
on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and on several other TV
shows.  Plus I've painted what attracted me, been in good
health most of the time, and best of all have enjoyed and
do enjoy a loving marriage.

So... this is a view of the Cathedral in Pisa, Italy. And of course
the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  Ten years ago in December,
nine days before Christmas I visited this lovely city, on a
side trip from exhibiting paintings in the Florence Biennale in
Florence, Italy. The whole trip was mind blowing, exciting, and
deeply rewarding.

Have a looking forward to the next decade day.
