From the Corner of

Greetings from my corner of the world.
I'm hoping you are all experiencing joy and harmony
in all that you celebrate this time of year.



Snowmen everywhere are rejoicing 
hoping for more snow!


"Go and open the door 
Maybe outside there's 
a tree, or a wood, a garden
or a magic city.

from The Door, by Miroslav Holub


Go and take a walk outside
and enter your local library
and see what you can uncover inside!

Singers!



"We have all been placed on this earth
to discover our own path
and we will never be happy
if we live someone else's idea of life."
James Van Praagh

Dance Lightly With Life
Today is your day to
dance lightly with life,
invite rainbows and butterflies out to play
sing wild songs of adventure
soar your spirit
and unfurl your joys.
Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Especially remembering lost loved ones. 



My parents, watching from above.
Don't forget to celebrate your loved ones 
you never know how long they'll still be with us.

A wonderful gift might not be wrapped as you'd expect.



Joy blooms where minds and hearts are open.

Hello from


My Guard Dogs!

Another special feature at the Weisman Museum and I'm hoping it's found a permanent place there.


Frank Gehry's Standing Glass Fish

I was ecstatic to see this fish that used to be
 at the Walker Art Sculpture Garden
before their renewal.








There is nothing more magical than family and friends to
brighten up your life.



We wish you all a merry Christmas 
and joyful gatherings to all.
