A Piece Of Me...
I was born in the second half of the 1900’s, possibly descended of "Scottish Tinkers" (still finding this), Tetched with Megalomania, Decidedly Hetro and an emerging Crone!
Winter, Blue, Spiritual, Empathic, Artist, Artisan, Wordist, Herbalist and a Stone Caster!
Most of my time, these days, is spent dealing with a semi-bizarre condition, "Arachnoiditis w/Myoclonic Dystonia"! Such is life after a fairly severe (ACDF C4-7) spinal incident. I am so grateful to no longer be paralyzed after successful surgery, that I try not to whine about the “Chump Change”! I’m sure any Quadriplegic out there would gladly accept the sacrifice for the freedom of Mobility!

Cultural Cruise Clips
We hit Turtle Bay, and even though the Geckos were fantastic, there was not too much art, I'm not sure why though? There was only a couple of pieces but from Bay area artists? No local artists could supply anything for them?
We headed straight over to the North Valley Art League to watch the Awards for the 25th Annual National Art Show! Wow, what a great idea to combine the two events! Unfortunately, I think they may have been ill prepared for just how great of an idea it was! Maybe next year someone could come up with a microphone? The HUGE crowd was totally unable to hear anything and there was even some angry people at the back of the crowd. I have to say though... THE ART! WOW,wow,wow! More on that later!
The one place I was totally stoked about was going out to the Shasta College Art Center, I thought they had a show by the instructors going on. I was wrong, way wrong! So wrong I will not even go on about it other than to say.."Who Was IN CHARGE of that?" OMG, I'll probably never go back there again, it was VERY disappointing is the nicest thing I can say! Is there only one artist out at that place? Did they not have enough time to prepare something, someone, anything else?
I do not want to end on a bad note so I will say that we had a great time overall and it brings me to a new level of appreciation for the level of effort that people do put into making these events happen for us!
