Renewed belief in goodness and grace

Today was a tough day. I got confirmation that the company that I shed blood for has "eliminated my position" while I am on medical leave. Many people that I believed in and swore by their integrity and loyalty have sold their souls to the devil. Lives are torn apart, incomes stolen and friendships thrown away. Aware that the betrayals would affect me, we have spruced up the house and put it on the market--complete with fresh camellias from the yard to make it look perfect. How wonderful it was to go to the mailbox right after the call from a emotionless HR person and have a painting from my SWAP (Sharing with Artist Partner). It looks as if an angel stopped by and painted the very flowers I had just placed around my house. It could not have come at a better time.

Please enjoy the GRACE in both the photo and the painting. I am filled with gratitude for both.

Two of my favorite things

Martha and I sipped champagne, nibbled on Tapas, chatted, sketched and finished off with unbelievable bread pudding and this cappuccino at Cesar's in Berkeley. This is my newest favorite thing--my little sketch box that Martha helped me concoct. It doesn't get alot better than this combo!
