Today was the graduation brunch for the 2019 Escapists. It was so much fun, such a wonderful celebration! I feel like I’ve been smiling all day, also visiting with some of my favorite people, eating good food, and doing some of my favorite things, such as lighting candles on the steps that lead to John’s studio – something that always makes me happy, part of the ritual of preparing for the epic parties my mentors throw.
The weather has also been absolutely beautiful. My lucky lizard, after two nights of hiding from the cold, has returned to sleeping in the lemon tree. Holly and I walked the Tranquility Trail in the early evening, something we haven’t done for a long time. As to painting, I felt like doing another abstract piece, one that’s colorful and exuberant like my mood today.
