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!

Rumors Are Rumors... ArtHop Is Still Rockin!
I was shoulder to shoulder in the crowds at Gallery 833, owned and operated by Dennis Halkides, located on Misteltoe! It was a lively bunch, with a couple of the Artists on hand fielding questions and talking about their work! I was delighted to see Barbara Enochian there, awesome collage work presented, I did get to see her for just a moment before she was swept away! One of my friends was absolutely delighted to meet and talk with the Artist responsible for the Cool Steel Fish along the new stretch of 44, John Streeby and talked his ear of for about 1/2 an Hour! It was very exciting and as my new official Arthop Kickoff point, since the Infinite Designs is now history, I did not have a hard time choosing, as I am a sucker for good Wine & Cheese of which Dennis and his Family have been providing since their opening! I was partial to Jeanette and Ann though... miss them much...
Anyhoo... so off to a Hopping good time, we ran through as many as we could, Vintner's, NVAL, Carnegies (which apparently does not have a web), and Vintage, meeting and greeting heavily along the way! There were plenty of crowds and a lot of people having a great time, no fizzle here! :) I am not sure where the After Party wound up, but we ended the Evening at the ever wonderful Tapas, sharing a piece of Delectable Delightful Cod and a final glass of Red! Owner, Brad graciously patient as we hung on endlessly... :) Thank you & Ohh-LaLa, here is to the next Hop! :)
