Every Halloween friends of ours have a Halloween party. Sandy always has some kind of great invitation. This year was so unexpected.  This is what I got in the mail.

Feels Like Home

Journal Page

I am a firm believer that home doesn't just have to be were you hang your hat or live It

Feels like home when I see my friend Pat, even when I don't see her for a few months.
No matter how long we are apart it always feels like home to me. Like we have never been a part.  We just pick up were we left off.  Feels like home...

Feels like home when I go to Port Townsend WA to Artfest even though I am thousands of miles away from home it feels so familiar to me with all my friendships I created through that journey. Feels like home.....

Feels like home when I go to Ocean City Md to our condo on the beach. And I hear the Ocean waves. Feels like home.....

Feels like home when I go to a Wilson High School Football game. Feels like home...

Feels like home when I go to Panera's and have dinner with my sisters, daughter and grandson. Feels like home....

Feels like home wherever I am with Steve. Feels like home.....

Say Happy Birthday to Steve! It will be his 51st Birthday week!!
We celebrate Birthday weeks in this household.
(Use to be month but we had to cut down)

Don't forget to visit everyone at PPF!

This week I am reading 2nd book of the Hunger Games.
 and listening to Ryan Adams new album Ashes and Fire
Favorite songs are Rocks and Do I Wait.

Have a fantastic week!!!

New Paintings, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Oprah

Such a busy week! I have not been able to visit very many Paint Party Friday Members please forgive me!!
I started 2 new paintings.  I started a very large one. I love working large! (Above peek)
and a smaller one. (below)

Working full time, going to football games, painting and taking Oprah's Lifework Class. So many Bing Bings and Aha's. Wow have I grown in the past week. Do yourself a favor if any of you are seekers like I am go to and sign up for the after the show webcast.  All I can say is fantastic. I have learned so much about myself.
I had taken the Oprah "New Earth" with Eckhart Tolle class a while ago and it changed my life. I don't think I would have gotten out of my "I am afraid to show anyone my art" funk if it where not for that class.  So powerful! It was funny when I started that book I read the first 2 chapters and thought "what is this s***".  But as soon as I started reading that 3rd chapter I had such a shift that it totally changed my life.  POWWW!!! Just like that! I could not get enough of it!! It really helped that my sister and daughter where doing the class also.  We had so many discussions.  Heidi and I went to the beach and we took our books and discussed everything we had highlighted. What a revalation!! One of my dreams is to one day see Eckhart in person.

Also again I wanted to remind everyone that this is Breat Cancer Awareness Month.
Don't forget to give your Donations to Breast Cancer Society

I am donating my painting to the Berks County Breast Cancer Society. She will be auctioned off at a silent auction at a fundraiser.

Also this week I am reading The Creative Habit by Twyla Twarp. And I am listening to
Laura Marling. Can't get enough of this song!

Have a great week everyone!!!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I think it is a really important thing to discuss.

And because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 Early detection is the key to Breast Cancer. 

Give your donations to the Cancer Society

I lost my sister-in-law Darylanne to cancer. She was 42 with a 8 year old little boy. 

That was 12 years ago.

She was the bravest and most courageous  person I have ever known.

Unfortunately she was not a miracle but you can be!

Get your mammogram!!!

I care about all of you!!
