Joseph’s Coat Rose In our house, we speak fluent Sophia. Our daughter is graduating from high school next Friday.  She has really bloomed into a lovely young lady.  She’s quiet, yet funny; sweet, yet sassy; gentle in spirit, fierce in conviction.  If she were a rose, I would…

“You Are My Sonshine”: The Gift of My Son’s Dyslexia

“Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I may remember.  Involve me and I learn.” -Benjamin Franklin Our oldest is graduating from high school this year.  And yes, this wee post may get a little sentimental, but stay with me. He’s taught me a thing or two about flexible thinking. Our son is challenged…

A Yearbook: My Ten Minute Reflection

I tossed my high school yearbook out. I had been wanting to do it for a very long time. Good grief, I graduated from high school 30 years ago. In fact, it hadn’t been on my mind or in my possession until several years back. When I went away to college, I left it behind…

A Birthday Surprise Featuring… Mi Esposo

Today is June 21st. The first day of summer. The longest day of the year…. Happy Birthday!  I would’ve hired a sky-writer and have him fly over our house to declare birthday wishes for you and for all to see, but you’re pretty hard to pin down.  I figured the only way to make sure…

Art Full Moment 6.13.14

Tony Abeyta http://tonyabeyta.com I have been a fan of Tony’s for years.  His art is steeped in his rich culture.  His work contains contemporary expressions of Navajo culture and legends, as well as the landscapes of the southwest.   Although I’m more familiar with his older pieces that contain more traditional imagery, his newer work…

The Background Music Of My Memories

  I was perusing photo blog last evening.  In it, I came across a gallery of images of the city where I grew up.  The images stirred a certain vestigial energy of childhood memories. What struck me was the particular way these beautiful images connected to my own memories of those familiar places. I heard…

Art Full Moment 5.22.14

  Jean-Claude Gaugy My husband and I were mesmerized when we stepped into a San Fransisco, Ca. art gallery and saw this artist’s work.  The piece we were drawn to was an 8ft or 10ft triptych ( 3 piece panels) of Picassoesque images moving and flowing from one panel into another. The images were carved…

I’m a Social Media Stick-In-The-Mud

Here’s an interesting statistic.  There are on average about 1,310,000,000 active Facebook users. Here’s a rather, uninteresting, factoid about moi —-I don’t have a Facebook account. (Gasp). I know, unbelievable.  (Except to those who actually know me).  Call me shy, private, anti-social.    All these years later, I’m still not comfortable with the idea of…

Art Full Moment

I ❤️ art.  I love sharing artful inspiration and images.  I love art museums and art galleries.  I love art history. I may just post Art Full moments…more often.  So much art, so little time! The paintings in this post are original oils by Donna Young.  My husband and I discovered her work in a…

In our house, we speak fluent Sophia. Our daughter is graduating from high school next Friday.  She has really bloomed into a lovely young lady.  She’s quiet, yet funny; sweet, yet sassy; gentle in spirit, fierce in conviction.  If she were a rose, I would describe her like a Joseph’s Coat climbing rose.  A fast-growing,…
