Happy Blog Anniversary! Yes, 6 years! Wow, I can’t believe that much time has elapsed since February 20, 2009. I still remember the first post I wrote about: a walk I took around the park with the old dogs, noting the first signs of spring and the return of the vultures. I wondered, to myself, how long a blogging exercise of writing and art would last? Who would be interested in what I have to share? Some days I feel life has dealt an over abundance of experience in the last 6 years. It’s always easy to pick out the negatives, because there have been plenty, but what about the positive side? I certainly feel lucky to have grown my circle of friends and art buddies. I’ve been fortunate to have some amazing four legged critters share my home (with exception of the furry critters the cats bring in). I’ve learned that I really do have an “arts support crew” out there in the world, people who actually are interested in my crazy studio creations. I can even say that my work does bring about smiles and positive thoughts from those who take it into their home. It makes life better.
Today I baked a batch of GF oatmeal cookies. It was part of a belated holiday gift from Tim & Lois. Yummmmm! Good cookies make my life much better! I wonder how long I can keep them a secret from my spouse….
Thanks to all of you! May the next 6 years be filled with more good things to come!
