Lover Boy, True Love, Be Mine

I can't believe that somehow I didn’t realize that today is Valentine’s Day until I happened to move the cursor over the time and date info. I thought today was the 13th. I’ve been scattered in too many directions.

Oddly enough, I’ve met several people over the years that had birthdays on this day (Happy Birthday Carl if you happen to run across this!). I always thought that if one had to have a birthday fall upon a holiday, that Valentine’s Day would be the one to choose. At least, if we are able to choose, and who knows – perhaps we are.

In any event, there are several projects that I must add to my “to do” list for the day now that I’ve made the connection. These would involve purchasing flowers, a touching card and perhaps candy, though both my partner and I are trying to lay off such treats. I wonder, can raw baby spinach ever be considered romantic?

Monday and the snow

So, I've had coffee and now I will literally dig my car out of the 20 inches of snow so that I can begin my trip back to the beach. I'm only going because I have rehearsal this evening, Act III of "Earnest". Here is one last pic of this storm that I want to post. I took this as we were leaving the house last night around sunset on our way to a friend's for dinner. This was taken from my front porch.

And here is the cast pic from "The Importance Of Being Earnest".

That is I in the lower left corner. We are all gathered about a print of my painting "Wilde" which I will autograph and which will then be auctioned off as a fund raiser for the Theatre.

Shameful absence and Winter Storm

I have to admit, loathe though I am to do so, that it has been a shamefully long time since I have updated this blog. I had every intention of documenting my month long journey back to the state where I was raised for my exhibit at the Capitol Arts Center in my hometown. This didn’t occur however because my laptop ( which I now refer to as my crap-top), just stopped allowing my access to the web just as my journey began.
I will state that the trip was wonderful and successful for me on may levels both professionally as an artist and interpersonally as a human. I am quite sure that I will be peppering this blog with tales and images from the experience because there are many of both.
However, at this moment it’s Sunday afternoon and there are 20 inches of snow on the ground. I awoke this morning to the sound of thunder and a flash of lightening which caused me to glance to the window with bleary eyes to behold a massive snow storm swirling through the air.

I grabbed for the digital camera and took the above pic through my window around 5:30 AM. Here are a few more that I took as the coffee was brewing...

And here are some I took while I was shovleing the 20 inches of snow from our walk...

That one is the snow piled in front of our house...

There are other images, but you get the picture. If all goes well, I will be able to dig my Beetle Bug out of this mess and make it back to the beach in time for rehearsal tomorrow afternoon for "The Importance Of Being Earnest" - my latest theatrical endeavor for the Milton Theatre Group for which I am co-producing as well as for which I have been cast in the lead role. Act III tomorrow.
