I picked up my E-Mail this morning and found that Akiko Watanabe (who, incidentally posted an exquisite piece on WTTW/Artwork) had blessed me with an Art Blog Award. I turned tickled pink and did handstands. I am to list seven things I love. Now, after tending to the injuries caused by the handstands, here is my list of 7 THINGS THAT I LOVE....... (1) I love my Creator. I am a Christian and He is my Father, My Friend and my Guidance to live my life and love my life. (2) I love my family and I love people....including a few ornery sons of a booger. (3) I love to love and be loved. (4) I love my dogs...Pokey and Taco Belle (5) I love the wonders of nature...from beautiful sunrises/sunsets to hummingbirds visiting flowers, to the symphony of raindrops in the forest to this big spider crawling up my....WHOOOOA! (6) I love music...Moody Blues, Enigma, Yanni, Coldplay, Tangerine Dream and so much More. But Rap?...only when I'm constipated. (7) I love the gifts of whatever talents I have, whether it's art or writing or cooking or drinking coffee. That's seven, but if I could name more, the list would be endless.
