I'm in Toronto. Steve drove me here today as he has a doctor's appointment at the Rehabilitation Hospital. I'm surrounded by people in wheelchairs and I'm definitely a minority here. I am sure this place is comforting for him as he is not the odd man out here, the ONE in the chair. There are many young men his age wheeling through the corridors. I have to admit, I am slightly uncomfortable as I type this, remembering a very painful time in my life... remembering a time where all I did was wait and look at the people as they walked and wheeled by. I have to stop myself from looking up every time I see wheels go by thinking it's him. Focus Danielle, focus.
On another note, I have been TOTALLY obsessed with the Royal Wedding. I have been watching all of the pre-shows, documentaries and lifetime specials. I LOVE the artistry and pageantry of it all. The history, the tradition, the tiaras. I just can't help myself. I'm having Steve PVR it while I'm away. I hope to watch some of it in Hampton Virginia.
Steve and I are going to spend some time together in Toronto before I fly out tomorrow morning for ART and SOUL . I'm taking two of Misty Mawn's classes: Cover to cover (how to make an art book) and the two day mixed media class. I have butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it.
I will post about it when I get back. I have a newsletter going out later today (I can't believe it's the end of the month already). I have two more new paintings to show you there! Hint*** It's a NEW Mother and Daughter painting and my FIRST Mother and Son painting. I hope to all have these new paintings and prints in the shop by tonight!
I hope you are happy wherever you are. I left the rain back home and traded it in for the strong winds. Let them take me safely to Hampton and back. Take care my dear friends. xox
