Today is my 5th year wedding anniversary.  I’ve actually been with my husband for 12 years now.  We took our sweet time getting married.  Our family had given up hope after 7 years.  Then I decided that it would be great to have a big party just for ourselves, it didn’t hurt that if we got married, I would be entitled to his free health care.  We did the whole thing ourselves.  We got married...

My Grandma died this past week.  She lived a very full and vibrant life.  This is her on the left with her three sisters.  Exactly one week before she died; my sister, niece and I went to Bend to visit with her.  I hadn’t seen her since she moved into assisted living.  So the Grandma I saw in the hospital was a mere shadow of her former self.  We visited with my mom and uncle who had been with her...

I love Peonies.  I don’t know why, but I’m so drawn to them.  At one time I even contemplated getting a tattoo of a Peony.  They are far superior to the rose.  Which I believe is totally over rated.  I’m not into things that can hurt me.  It’s a little ironic since I live in the ‘City of Roses’.  I guess I’ve never been known for being main stream.  If...

I was cruising around the web jumping from one link to the next and I happened upon this piece.  The artist is Chris Buzelli and his work is just amazing.  I love when you find something that instantly connects with you.  Art can be so powerful and passionate.  It’s easy to see how it feeds the soul.  It’s why I have this crazy desire to be an artist.  It so...
