Meet Harold… he’s my travel buddy. And he’s gonna be seeing Paris, London and Aix with me. He doesn’t take up much space, and doesn’t weigh much. He’s very excited about the trip, never having been abroad. I’ve shown him the travel photos from the last trip and he’s bursting at the seams to begin our journey, which starts on July 5th from San Francisco International.
Be sure to return here soon to see pictures of Harold and I traveling around Europe. (He’s a handsome devil, ain’t he? … very photogenic!)
My thoughts turn to Paris. It’s not hard to float into a daydream about traveling to “the city of light.” In fact, I’m thinking about it more and more as my trip to Europe is just under a month away!
I want to daydream about sipping a coffee in a little cafe in the Latin Quarter… or walking in a French garden… or contemplating an Impressionist painting in the D’Orsay. Instead, tugging at me are such tidbits as “what shoes will you bring? Your hip Converse tennies or your more comfortable ‘walkers’?”? Both I say. “Should I pack the watercolors with me on the plane or in the luggage? How many pairs of socks should I bring?”
It’s a new dawn… and the old blog is gone… This is the new and improved site. I broke the last one… something good. So this is a fresh start! I like fresh starts!
Sooo… To start things off:
First Friday Art Walk is upon us. It’s a bit cyclical, isn’t it?
June 4th, 2010, people. The weather will be lovely. The drinks will be chillin’ in the sink. And Judy’s famous “Oatmeal Everythings” will be waiting on a plate for you. AND…. if you whisper “Green Fairy” at the door, you’ll find something special in your drink.
5 E. Gabilan Street, Suite 205, Salinas, (If you’re not in California, you may want to skip this one).
Fun starts at 5pm and lingers until 8pm. The Cartoonery is upstairs above First Awakenings… the entrance is on Gabilan Street. Look for the sandwich board.
… expression is the conveyor belt of art… or is it the other way around?
