“this is my mom.”
“art is the elimination of the unnecessary.”
a little girl
who was once my student
and still a friend of mine
opened up a treasure chest
to show me
one piece of clothing after another
that she created all on her own
after teaching herself to sew
and I couldn’t be more proud.
what began as post #1 in may of 2012
has led to post #2001 today.
thank you to all who
view, read, comment, chat, post, and share.
i appreciate each and every one of you
even in those far away countries
where i may have only 1 loyal reader
you have all offered me
much food for thought
and most of all
wonderful human connections.
here’s to the next 2001.

this crew has built their own airplane.
they are flying to australia.
it will take them “70 miles long” to get there.
i have no doubt they will arrive safely and on time.
“to invent an airplane is nothing. to build one is something. but to fly is everything.
when you combine
dots, pencils, whales, glitter, markers, acorn caps. and glue
and make them into a good day.

Finally! Your color-on-the-wall childhood dreams just became a reality.
All you need is this black-and-white floral wallpaper and some washable markers.

if you want to make your life a masterpiece.”
