Uplifting Thought

 "Whether you've seen angels floating 
around your bedroom or
just found a ray of hope at a lonely
moment, choosing to believe that
something unseen is caring for you
can be a life shifting exercise." -Martha Beck

Rainy Day

"The rain began again. It fell heavily,
easily, with no meaning or intention
but the fulfillment of its own nature
which was to fall and fall..." -Helen Garner

Possible, Yes

"Pretend impossibilities
are possible.
They are." -Sandi Hemmerlein

"As  I watched my mom decorate her tree last night,
I was thinking that "home" is
never a specific town or house or room
where the tree resides.
It's instead a series of moments we gather--
like snapshots on a string,
of the times spent with people we love most.
The quietest moments that pause the longest
and echo the loudest in a quickly turning world.
If you could collect one crucial think in this life,
let it be the moments, the snapshots,
the collection of still points that make up "home",
and hold them close in spaces
that remain open when you need to return." -Victoria Erickson "Edge of Wonder"

Those Were The Days My Friend

So I made a list of about five guys that I thought were either cute, cool, funny, or had crushes on. In other words these are the guys I hoped would ask me to dance with them at the Friday night high school dances. I sent this list to my best friend whom I've known since the 3rd grade. We went through grammar school, Jr. High and High school together. I said: " Brings back so many memories, feelings. What would I tell my 14 year old self now? took me a long long time to grow up but I'm glad I had you by my side.  It's so great to have a wise friend.  you were and are the best!   PS If those guys had to make a list of girls they remembered or liked in high school I wonder who would be on it? I was so clueless."

She responded:  "To tell you the truth there isn't much I would change, I'm glad we were pretty clueless...memories from then are pretty happy.  It isn't filled with anxiety or regret or even wishful thinking. And I can bet we are not on anyone's list of memorable people, haha....I am so glad to have you in my life. Our shared memories are priceless."

Same Same does Dumb and Dumber

Several weeks ago my sister Jocelyn and I were visiting the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas.
As we approached the entrance I noted a very large brown sculpture.  

It was familiar and I said, "I think this artist is Serra".  At the base of the sculpture there was  signage titling the piece "Vortex" and crediting the artist I had named.  " I said oh yes, it is Richard Serra."  My sister said "As in Father Junipero Serra, I wonder if he was named after the planet?"  

(After a planet????)  
  "RICHARD?????"  I said.

  "NO!!!!!" she said, "JUNIPER !"

(Juniper???) "It's NOT Juniper it's JUPITER "  I said.

Just another day in the life of the same-same sisters! We make each other laugh hysterically.

We celebrated my friend Marion's birthday with a full day of fun.

Lots of great contemporary art to view beginning with Yayoi's Kusama's Infinity mirrors on the 3rd floor.

Then a late lunch next door at Vespaio

 Cheers to you Marion!

Then we drove back to Long Beach for a dessert, coffee and tea
