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!

Now then, for good measure I’ll throw in ADD, Bi-Polar, OCD and a bit plain ole NUTZ….. J I refer to this as having numerous "Cats In My Attic", which means I still have control...otherwise they would just be "Bats In My Belfry"! : )

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!

City Hall Show Reception Was A Fantastical Whirlwind!!

 First off, I have to say how blown away I was at how many of my FaceBook Friends came!  Whoop-Whoop!  Wow*Wow*Wow!  I cannot even begin to name all the names because I know for a fact that I missed a few as I looked up and just caught a glimpse of someone in the fray without getting a chance to take heed of them!  I feel really bad about that, so, if you are reading this and I was unable to acknowledge you, please accept my apologies! I was just a little overwhelmed a couple of times, I was not able to keep up!  I am not complaining by any means, I was having a blast, but I did not mean to shirk anyone!

I had several highlights of the evening, friends from afar, (Humbolt), old friends, new friends and even my personal Super Hero Nuero Surgeon Dr. Page!  YAY!  It just so happens that the picture they chose to put in the brochure"Herky-Jerky", was the sister painting to the one that I painted for and gave to her when I left her care, called "Fiet De Exis"!  I actually liked the painting I had done for her, so I decided I wanted to do one for myself using the same ideas!  Then when I finished it, I decided that it perfectly brought to visionary life the feeling (Herky-Jerky) of my unusual condition of Myoclonic Dystonia! 

I was even given gifts!  How could I go wrong!  Blessings from far away, lots of local friends and My Favorite Local Folk singers Craig and Erin Friedman are "Still Married", with Erin bringing me some lovely goodies and belting out a few wonderful tunes! Of course, from my perch up on the 3rd floor I could really barely hear anything, but I caught wind a few times!  I did get to hear the "Pine Dogz", Steve and Diana Willis, when I managed to get away for a few minutes to catch some of those great nibbles they had out for the refreshments!! 

My 'BGB' Guy Haley, a notoriously famous local muralist and fellow FB fiend, I mean friend, came by to harass me and snap a few shots!  At least he didn't show up in full on body paint!  Cause I was half scared he might!  We should do a publicity shot of that huh?!!  ")  I had such a wonderful time, saw so many great people, got to talk about my art for hours, to people that LISTENED and handed out almost 200 Gallery Cards!  I felt like I was famous or something! :)
