Recollecting a Serendipitous Art Moment

I was just working on cleaning up my computer, and I found this photo:

I was having lunch with a group of Italians at il Monazeno Ristorante a couple of years ago.  While dishing some spaghetti out for myself from the first course, I accidently dropped a couple of tomatoey noodles on the table cloth...  

...violĂ ! The Latina Spaghetti Dancer was fortuitously born!

Cheap Thrills

"Things that Amuse Me" or "My Tribute to a Pre-Halloween Abbotsford Psycho-Type Moment"

Filmmaker/Videographer I'm not... but I can only imagine if I had iMovie (and of course some skill) ... then I might really astound my mammoth audience.

[If you believe that, then I'm sorry to disillusion you.]

My Sister Cracks Me Up

My sister and I exist in extreme polar lives... She as wife, at home with husband and 5 kids, me as artist, roaming about the planet, child-free.

I sent her the following article in jest:

Actual 1955 Good Housekeeping article.

to which she responded in semi-jest (lol):


What is so funny about this? I do this every day for my sweet endearing darling. When he comes home I am so gay (third bullet point) that he just feels gay himself. I am just quiet and let him tell me all about his travels and exquisite 5 star restaurant gourmet dishes while I have been happily feeding 5 children frozen dinners and gaily, continually tidying the house so that I can make a nice trail to walk through.

I minimize all noise by taping my children’s mouths shut as I comb through their knotted hair and wash their faces before he arrives. Oh, but the bliss continues as I cater to him by propping up his favourite pillow behind his tired, weary head and offer to take off his shoes from a long trip. I smile as I get a cold beer from the fridge for him.

Lastly, I make sure I have put deodorant on and touch up my hair and make-up from a long day of children pulling, screaming, and joyful demands that never cease. My husband looks to me to satisfy every personal need and I am there to provide it. I am woman, joyful friend, cook, and confidant.

I do not have any needs and have been programmed by society to be a robot with no emotions or feelings. It is so wonderful and I love life as I am cheerfully wound up for a new glorious day that awaits!


And so another day begins for us both, each on our different planets...
(Love ya 'Cheez'! xo)
