February 14 
This is the first time in a long time since I didn't have a boyfriend or a date to spend Valentine's Day with. I actually can't quite remember when...maybe since I was about 15-17 years old. Wow! Maybe I even had a boy to smooch then. Huh. Well, there is always a first time for everything. Nice thing is that I am feeling alright about it. I am concentrating on some things and discovering new people and ways of being. I am on a path of rediscovery.
My Valentine this year was my good friend Erica. We shared a bottle of red wine and a few laughs. It's all good.

My Birthday!! 
My birthday came and went earlier this week on Monday and I had a great time with my friends. Some of my lovely SF and LA peeps took me out to a couple of super yummy dinners. I also drove up to see my good friend who lives in Boulder Creek which is near Santa Cruz. Sometimes a long drive into the mountains is just the thing one needs.
It is still my birthday week so I'm gonna put my Amazon wish list out there. Hell, It is still my birthday MONTH!! I'm gonna celebrate!! :-)
So if you feel like sending a prezzie my way (there is nothing wrong with asking right?), just visit my wish list here.

Destroy everything you touch today
Destroy me this way
Anything that may desert you
So it cannot hurt you

You only have to look behind you
At who’s undermined you
Destroy everything you touch today
Destroy me this way

Everything you touch you don’t feel
Do not know what you steal
Shakes your hand
Takes your gun
Walks you out of the sun

I am still struggling with a painting. I don't do well with themed shows. It's like being given a homework assignment. I want to keep it in the style I've been developing, but it's hard because I wouldn't have picked the size and format I am forced to use. I like to work on pieces that come from my own inspiration and heart. I don't need a homework assignment.
