Actually, it isn’t far from the truth! I so look forward to these issues and when I finally have them in my hands, I find myself reading little bits at a time. There is so much to take in and I find that I can only handle a little before I come down with a full-fledged case of ‘Beauty Overload.’ I suspect I also want to take my time so that I don’t get to that final page too soon.
I’ve started reading Where Women Create – some of my favorite bloggers are featured, including Karen Valentine and Elizabeth Maxon. I’m so happy for them both! I know that Beverly and Pink Saturday are featured in Artful Blogging – a well deserved recognition of all the work Beverly does every week in her role as hostess of this event.
Back to rehearsals today. Last night I attended a lovely tribute to Raul Moncada, friend and colleage of many years when I worked here full-time. He was just 64 when he died. But what a lesson he taught us – grab life by the horns and live it fully. He had such an amazing life; born in Cuba, eventually making a life in the United States. He was an actor, a translator, a playwright, a stage manager. He traveled the world. He was loved by many, including Don and me.
New tulips from Trader Joe’s. I always love flowers around my home, of course, but especially so here in this temporary lodging. They add life and beauty to the apartment. They make me smile. And you can’t beat that morning light, can you?
Have a wonderful day.
