Here's to Hearts

Song - My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion cover by Karolina Protsenko



Yesterday I took a lovely walk with my buddy Jill. Now most of you know I haven't been out much in the last 7 months due to respiratory issues.  But taking a stroll around the neighborhood sounded perfect.  We were walking over a bridge and I saw these colorful little hearts.




 This one looks like a bird flying to its nest filled with eggs and love.






The hearts were on both sides of the bridge.  Most of them were giving thanks to doctors and nurses.



But most were a reminder about love and caring for our community.  I was delighted to stumble upon them!

Paris Painting Returns to Paris (Kind of)

Song - Little French Song by Carla Bruni



I had a happy surprise several months ago when a woman named Isabelle contacted me through my painting website.  She was wondering about purchasing a painting that I did a number of years ago.  Unfortunately that specific painting had sold several years ago so besides making sure she was legit and not some hacker, I did my research and put on my thinking cap.  Isabelle has a French language business in Paris and she is a tutor.  She wanted my painting for her website. 

Here was my solution.....anything sent to Paris would be incredibly expensive to send and since she only needed an image of this painting (which I still own the copyright on) I offered to send her a high resolution copy for a nominal fee while the money transaction would go through PayPal.  She was very happy with that idea and the most charming thing is that we still email each other every few weeks wondering how each of us is dealing in this time of craziness!

If you would like to take a French language class in Paris or on Skype her contact is here:

Checking In

Song - Everlasting Arms by Playing for Change - Song Around the World




Hello there little beauty!  I do mean you.....

Just wanted to check in to see how you are coping with all that is happening in our world right now.  Are you able to find something to do at home that fills you up?  Or are you bouncing from one project to the next due to lack of focus?  Are all of your closets and drawers clean and orderly? Have you been cooking up a storm or baking?

I am a little of all of the above.

Hang in there...we will get through this together!

Living Alone

Song - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry by James Taylor & Keb' Mo'





There are times during this SIP when it can be pretty lonely especially if you live alone.  Think about connecting with a neighbor, friend or loved one during this time.  Write a note, send a card, bring by some flowers in a Mason jar, call them or better yet FaceTime with them as it is great fun to see and hear the other person.  Hopefully share a laugh!
