Someone's in The Kitchen With Dinah...

...and they are NOT "Strummin' on the ol' banjo"!!!
This is my 4 page spread in Juli's Moly
"In the Kitchen"
for the 2012 Illustrated ATC G8 Moleskine exchange.
Sometime in late summer
"she" will make her way home to Juli
 in Canada...:)

get out of the kitchen."

I Have Been "Chromed" Under Protest...

...and I am absolutely hating every minute of it!!!
It has taken me over an hour this afternoon to upload
this new blog page today.
Why, you might ask???
I just have come find out that,
during my latest blog world absence,
Blogger has changed.
Let me tell my current "blog slug" persona
this is not being accepted as a
positive change.
I was first required to install to "Google Chrome"
to add this page.
This was it not easy on my sporadic and unreliable
internet connection.
after a call to Cox cable...and a modem reboot...
I was soon halfway to success.
Next, was to tackle the newness of Blogger format.
(Which may actually not be all that bad...)
Get this...
I spent the morning getting all zen like...
by the sweet strains and haunting melodies
R. Carlos Nakai"s flute
William Eaton's harp guitar
enchantingly playing
in the background.
Life was mellow....the pen just flowed.
Then came those unstoppable changes to the norm.
Glad to be over the hump.
no surprises next upload...fingers and toes crossed.

"Breaking Free..."

from sadness,
preconceived notions,
the blurring of time,
I have no other choice...I must do this!

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

"In Loving Memory..."

Susan V. Krahenbuhl
November 26,1960...March 23, 2012
After Glow
"I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after glow
of smiles when the day is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and
sunny days.
I'd like the hearts, of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done."

~Helen Lowrie Marshall
(From her book of poetry, Close to the Heart)
