Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
Is it a nun? A sailor? Or a man with a prayer cap in an archway?

Finally! I have landed! I’ve been traveling back & forth from Lenox, Ma to DC area all Spring & Summer…
living out of a suitcase! I’m pooped!
Happy to settle in for awhile…I’ll be hitting MAIN STREET wearing my wings & doing cartoons for people,
for donations & selling my art as THE ART ANGEL!
I hope to raise money for my documentary “Message-We’re All Writing This Story”…where I’ll be dancing across country wearing my wings for PEACE! AND doing art with strangers!
I’m back doing “CANVAS DANCE” ™, Paintings For Peace workshops! YEAH!
I’ve actually started another blog dedicated to this workshop: http://www.canvasdance.wordpress.com
I have several newspaper articles about CANVAS DANCE but only found this one so far:
Check it out…it is great fun & close to my heart as a way to peace on this planet.
So, I’m here…Northampton, MA.!
I’ll be leading a CANVAS DANCE ™ Friday November 14 at Hay Market Cafe…
www.commonwealthcenter.org for details…hope to see you!
Below is a 2 person Canvas Dance…
I LOVE this town!
I’m still in boxes, so, I can’t share any photos from my adventures in the last 4 months…but soon!
I just wanted to say I’m back & hope to write regularly soon!
LOTS of LOVE people!
The bottom line is LOVE…
You want to know how to make God Laugh?
Tell him your plans!
Old joke…I know… but it still rings so very true! I know, personally, I made a whole bunch of plans in my life…but GOD, (The Universe, whatever the name!), had other plans for me…so, as usual, I surrender to this path and continue to trust this process & remain grateful & and think positively, even through difficult times…
through difficult times.

Hi! I’m back from the DC area, where I was able to take care of some business, see some friends and family AND run around wearing my angel wings! I got some photos & film to add to my documentary, which once I get some technical help, I’ll post some pics of my adventure with wings!
I LOVE wearing my wings in public! People are 98% of the time grinning severely! This time I carried paper hearts with me & handed them out to people who smiled at me or stopped to talk.
At one point I was at Union Station in DC and had to kill 7 hours! I walked around a lot, so, many people saw me. At one point I sat down & started drawing …when I turned around I found 4 children staring at me. They started asking me questions…5 minutes later, I had 8 children sitting with me…all drawing with me! It was so cute!
I’m kind of a kid magnet…with or without the wings!
People were very kind and gave me FREE things! I was at Port Authority, Union Station & on the MARC train. Sometimes on this trip the world seemed magical.
I’m now back in The Berkshires and putting all I got into feeling healthy & happy! Updating my ETSY.com shops & Cafepress.com.
Unfortunately, I’m still dealing with my legal issue of my business flooding…almost 5 years ago! It’s so stressful to carry the financial burden I was left with! Hopefully, it won’t go on another year!
In the meantime, I just want to be POSITIVE and live my life in health & love!
I send BIG Wishes & Big Kisses to all in this NEW YEAR!
