An exciting day -- filled with joyous stories about love

Steven with me inside the Love sculpture by 
6th Avenue in New York City 
Unknown photographer 2012

Today was a very happy day.  A friend came to visit (we were both
rapid tested) and we talked about so many things -- art, travel, teaching,
the great outdoors, -- so fun.  One of the things we shared was our love of travel.
Scrolling through my blogs from past years I found this photo that I love
of Steven and me in New York City, where I was showing my work with
the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery. Thank you to Ruthie Tucker, the gallery
art director.

This sculpture was close to our hotel, and like everyone else 
visiting New York, we had to get our photo taken with it. I've
found New Yorkers to be very warm, kind, funny, and passionate
about many subjects I care about -- like art. 

This photo came up tonight as I was looking at past years' posts.
And I think it's important for us to have positive conversations
about the great parts of our lives sometimes. That's certainly
what I want to do here, when I can. So I am grateful to my 
friend for our talks about travel, and to New York City for
all the super shows I've been in there.  I hope to go
back this year. 

Have a loving your life day!
