As We Speak

Mr. Aspen is being whisked away to his new desert paradise. I shall miss him
g r e a t l y! I did offer to cat sit should his new owner ever need and it
seems that may be a not-too-distant possibility.
Until then; I leave you with these!

Getting Ready



For a calligraphy workshop I'm teaching this Saturday. I think I'll use this piece as what NOT to do. There are elements I like; but it all blends together too much for my taste. I really like the quote by the late Danny Kaye. Wish me luck!
