no bands

we didn't see any bands last week. he wasn't feeling very well. he did manage to take some stunning photos from our backyard though, didn't he?

i said to him. do you notice the sky more here? he says yes. i wonder if it's cause before we were looking at the mountains. here all there is,
is sky.

book club

had book club at the coffee shop. i ate a reese's peanut butter cup & drank an orange creamsicle. my favorite quote from the book is:

"Ever morning, until you dead in the ground, you gone have to make this decision."..."You gone have to ask yourself. Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today?"...I realized I actually had a choice in what I could believe.


went out to lunch with my friend. the food was excellent. dark leafy greek salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, delish vinaigrette & feta. i had this amazing alfredo vegetable lasagna. my dessert was even better. the best lemon bar i have eaten. it had blueberries inside and was topped with grated white chocolate and a cream cheese mixture. it was like lemon meringue blueberry cheesecake pie.

we spoke about life philosophies. she told me how she lived all those years in kenya before she moved to texas. she is from england. i love listening to her speak. it reminds me of my friend who is from scotland, that i haven't seen in ages. that was one of the things i liked about working with women from all over the world all those years ago. hearing stories about places i have never been.

her art on show

this is my friend R. she had a piece in an art show. we met S there & talked about all the art on display. can't believe we met in class a whole year and a half ago. i love talking art with others who understand it.
it's great getting others points of view. the best thing about it was not just noticing colors, shapes, and textures, but really studying what attracted us to certain pieces. what pieces we didn't like, and what they meant or how they made us feel.
