Life Drawing Show

It's been another wonderful day. Sometimes I worry that I say
that too often. But is that possible? I think it matters on the highest
level to recognize when we are enjoying our lives. There’s so much
sorrow, pain, and illness around us, and even in our own lives – that
each precious, happy day counts, and is  worth celebrating.

I know it gets dull reflecting on what life was like back before the pandemic.
But oh boy do I ever miss those days. I came upon this picture of Steven
and me at a show at the Heliconian in February 2020 featuring drawings.
And felt so happy thinking about that positive time just before we found out
about the pandemic. It was the best. Absolutely no worries. So I love this photo.
And I love the drawing I did on canvas of Steven my sweet husband. The drawing
hangs in our hallway now, and I feel both proud and delighted every time I see it.

Have a loving your life day.
