"Luck of the Draw #2..."

This was the exact view we were to have this morning
October 28, 2008
as we looked out of our hotel balcony window...
but
due to the need to replace 2 highly sensitive computer sensors
on our
German built American car...
(why are mechanical things so complicated these days?)
our plans to get away to
Sedona, Arizona have been put on hold.

This journal page was drawn in May of 2006
from the very room
we were to have this week.
I find that comfortingly funny.
I had to find something funny, now didn't I? LOL:)

"Laughter is the corrective force
which
prevents us from becoming cranks."
~Henri Bergson

Glad you can smile, but am praying that your trip can be back on track soon. Wonderful page, though.

That's life, isn't it? Your sketch is great and the colors are so vivid! SEDONA is sooo incredible. I haven't been there since I started sketching. I can't wait to see what you do there. Have fun with your sensors!

A beautiful scene for sure Margaret. So sad you are missing it in the flesh. Cars are a necessary evil.

You have such a great outlook on paper as well as in life! Hope you on the road soon. Can't wait to see the sketches.

So you are there by revisiting your journal today eh? Hopefully your car will be repaired soon. Hope you aren't stuck paying for rooms you couldn't use. Humor sometimes comes late in a situation but at least you have found it.
