  • My husband and I are traveling once again. For 2 months through the US. We wanted to drive up from our little town in d
    the south of Mexico, but teachers block roads and worst things are happening in the north and so we flew to San Antonio and are now in Ely, MN, near the Canadian border. On the way meeting friends from 30 and more years ago, who later became my agents in the north and south of the US, selling my etchings and paintings and T - Shirts and for some years I felt somehat famous and getting THERE, whatever THERE means. Then that went down and they changed dirctions and so did I, but those were exciting years and meeting them again was wonderful, because we sat chatting away for hours as we did when we were young and that made me feel young again and grateful for this journey of my life and all the part that developped because and with them.

    We never drive more than 4 or 5 hours. From the car I still see enough landscape with my failing eyes so that I can enjoy. My husband is getting older and myeyesight is dwindling and so we wanted to see people and certain landscapes again. I cannot walk too much or without a person accompanying me. That means: getting older. I did see and just did: wonderful sunrises, a beaver swimming from the shore of the lake to a little island in front of our window, an eagle circling over us while having breakfast, an otter eating crayfish...yes, I do hear the loons. What a call!

    I still enjoy art in museums and galleries. Discovered the gorgeous painter Yosui Kasama in Houston and was inspired to draw and paint myself. Even though my lines sometimes do not meet or the colors are not how my eyes perceive them, nice images come out or so they seem to my compromised eyesight. In Dallas my friend Lynda took me to James Turrells Twilight Skylight Spectacles outside Rice University and even with few retina cells still firing: I enjoyed that very much. There are many art installations by him in many places, also Rodent Crater outside of Flagstaff, google him, very interesting.

    I discovered that Kansas City is a gorgeous city and had never suspected such.

    We watched the documentary RODRIGUEZ that won an Oscar this years about the incredible story of Sixto Rodriguez and his singing. I wont tell you more: go and watch it and now I am hooked on his song Crucify Your Mind!!!

    Nearly blind and still stuff to enjoy and get excited about: light and the other inner light that sparkles with friendship!

    Are there joyful events in your life?
