Gifts of the Spirit Boat

When we were out West not too long ago (although now it seems like a dream), one of our closest friends gave us a gift.  Our friend is Jennifer Ewing, an artist in mixed media as well as the fine arts.  She and her husband Leo Germano are a dynamic duo in the Art world with their mural and fine art business that they started in 1989 as Ewing & Germano.  Currently, Leo is developing his already awesome skills as a photographer, and Jennifer has branched out in workshops and events around her “Spirit Boat” series.  Jennifer started this series soon after her father died in 2004.  I remember visiting her studio and seeing early paintings where notes from her father were pasted on the canvas.  Fast forward several years and the motif of boats, of journeys, of spiritual quests continues.  To commemorate our 25th wedding anniversary, Jennifer offered us a boat from several that she had been working on.

Magnolia Flowers for Belinda

Just because it’s been awhile since I’ve posted any photos for my friend Belinda at www.busymindthinking.com.  The blossoms are now gone, but this  post helps me relive their beauty, a beauty that reminds me of Belinda. (more…)

Unlucky Day: Friday the 13th

Usually, Friday the 13th is a lucky day for me.  At least, it’s a day I don’t dread.  I love black cats and I make it a point to walk under ladders, so celebrating Friday the 13th is just another way to thumb my nose at superstition.  Except for this Friday the 13th.  Today is my bureau chief’s last work day before retirement, and now Friday the 13th indeed feels unlucky.  I love this woman.  She is the nicest person I’ve ever met:  she smiles easily, has a warm and welcoming demeanor, and rarely speaks ill of anyone.  She is very organized and dedicated to her work.  She has been my buffer between the work I need to do and the bureaucracy that often tries to trip me up.  She knits.

I have many gifts to remember her by.  Here are a few that I can share. (more…)
