I worked in the studio and we were able to get another two car loads packed and delivered. Then I attended my dentist appointment to receive my new crown...thrilling yes and I did it without medication. I hate when the medicine takes hours to wear off...and I feel as if everyone is looking at me drooling!! I came home and checked my routine emails and paper work. Then I went out for a much needed "Ladies Evening" dinner at the Indian restaurant ...Bombay on 30 Th street. Mary and Priscilla and I spent the next couple of hours catching up each others latest art endeavors. Mary is preparing for a commission and has received a grant that allowed her to purchase some specific wood working tools for her latest commissions. She is teaching drawing classes at the library on Tuesdays and getting ready for classes at COTC. She is also planning on graduate school...keep your eyes on the prize. Mary also works three days a week for the Health Department...a very busy lady!!!!
Priscilla is setting up portrait sessions at her Walgreen's store by appointment only. She has plans for her Paper Moon vintage sessions at Pigeon Roost Pumpkin farm this fall plus she is photographing several weddings this summer. Priscilla is one of the most talented artists in watercolor so I do hope some of her photos will inspire some new painting sessions on her days off from the lab. If you need restoration ...or special photo developments contact her ...she is the best. (But I am a bit prejudiced :0) )
..the Bombay garden is a delight if you are willing to try something different and delicious....
I had a very reassuring visitor from a strong Cancer survivor today...Jill's gentle hugs and positive words filled my heart with courage. The doctors told Jill she had about four months to live a year ago....a positive attitude...good nutrition...the very best doctors and treatments and the undeniable courage to LIVE each moment. Jill and her husband Paul have walked together each day...and she is a shining light of healing wisdom and Faith. Thank you dear Jill...my words are totally inadequate when I try to express my admiration and appreciation.
all of the answers
are within my heart...
with my thoughts
in solitude and stillness
serenity and peace are my prayers.
Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
Happy Summer...enjoy each and every day................
