The 16th thing I learned in 2022 -- wonderful things happen when you least expect them

Looking on the bright side -- inspired by this cheery
image of my street -- Cheerywood -- no -- kidding --
Cherrywood -- a lot of wonderful things have happened
in 2022.

The fact that it wasn't safe to be in public gatherings
inspired me to join art shows in California put on 
virtually by the San Fernando Valley Arts and Cultural

The shows were beautiful. I met new artists and 
curators virtually, and won first place in one show
and a $500 American prize for one of my pieces.  
So lovely.

Plus I also got to show in the Louvre in the Carousel
du Louvre Art Shopping show for the third time.  That
inspired us to travel to Paris, which was certainly one of
the highlights of the year.

Back home, we are beginning to think about the holidays,
and time spent with family -- who have lots of big news --
a new baby, my son's wedding. Happy times.
And this image came up when I did a search for the holidays,
which somehow seems just right.

Have a loving your life day.
