A THANK YOU!!! And... announcing 1st season show!

WOW! I am soooooo grateful to you guys for that warm outpouring of support in response to my last post! I was feeling quite low and a bit vulnerable for a while in the period around that post (it's been a rougher-than-normal winter... not entirely sure of ALL the reasons but, regardless, it has).

So the warmth and support so many of you gave so generously really meant a lot and I thank you... heartily.

And now, I'm *very* happy to share that it appears spring is officially, really officially here!! Flowers in bloom, birds singing, WARM temps (and for more than one day)... it appears that the long gray period that was last winter is past! It is officially SPRING!!!


The vibrant life and energy, the new growth, the sweetly scented air, and warm sunshine are waking all my senses at once and overwhelming them in a most pleasant way. And, the way things seem to warm up around here, that means that next week it will be Summer and Hot! HaHa!

As for now, I'm trying to cherish what I may of the gift that these days are every little chance I get.

And... I'm in the middle of getting ready for my 1st show of the new season! I'm very grateful and excited to have been selected as one of the lucky participants of an IndieSacramento show that is part of the Women's History Month Events hosted by Maria Shriver and Governor Schwarzenegger. The show will be this Saturday at the California Museum (in Sacramento) from 10am- 3pm. As part of the event, FREE Admission to the California Museum is included! So this is a chance not only to get to see work of several of the talented artisans that IndieSacramento has come to be so well known for around the Capitol City, but also a chance to visit the California Museum for free! All in all, this should be a great event to add to a beautiful spring Saturday! I'll also have some new works that have not yet been seen so if you're in the region, swing by and say Hi. :)

I would also like to send a very sincere thank you to the lovely ladies at IndieSacramento for the spotlight/feature on the IndieSacramento Blog.

For now, I'm sending warm, sunny wishes your way as I get back to preparations for the show... as well as ALL the work of recovering files, re-installing programs, settings, links, everything after my computer hard drive died and had to be replaced yesterday! But that's a story for another post...

Kenna--Sorry you were feeling low. I think winter can do that sometimes...Until two weeks ago I was enjoying our snowcover (November until a week ago), but the novely wore off and I needed some spring. We headed south for a few days and it helped. They have daffodils in full bloom south of Saint Louis. :)

Congrats on your show. Have fun!

Kenna, what wonderful news to be part of a show! And no wonder ... your work is so very moving ... your lens detected what many would not otherwise see. You love of nature is revealed and evidenced in every shot. So nice to hear from you and that you have emerged from the long winter triumphant and inspired!

Thank you both! Will do a more in-depth personal catch up with you (and comment-leavers ;) of last post too), but now dealing with show prep, computer re-building, etc...

But I will catch up with you all one of these days when you least expect it... you know how I go. ; )
