    my crazy 8’s… do please delete if you don’t want it here 🙂
    Passions: my girlie, accessible [good]art for the masses, my family blood and extended, natures little details, furry critters, staying in touch, a cozy home, children overlooked lost and neglected.

    Want to do’s: have a solo show, be up close and personal with a whale, see Ep again and meet her son, have another child, be a healthy physical good example for Abs, travel extensively, live close to my sister.

    Say often: what? (swear I’m losing my hearing), love you abs, we’ll see…, lovely, LYLAS.

    Books: Trouble in the Barker’s Class, On My Way to Buy Eggs, Big Sister Little Sister, Jesse Bear What will you Wear?, Ballet Sisters, DW Flips, Freckle Juice, Mrs. Clause takes a Vacation.

    Songs: Let my love open the door – Townshend, The Promise – Chapmann, Allison – Costello, Time after Time – Lauper, Both Sides Now – Mitchell, Let the River Run – Simon, Come on Home – Everything But the Girl.

    Best Friends: you are smart, you make me laugh, you are different than me, you’re the same as me, you think I’m funny, you make my heart swell up with joy, I can be me around you, you know my past, my present and want to know my future.

    C’est tout!

    definitely agree on art being much more accessible. Public art, especially. Anything by Mitchell is good, Allison is another gem. Veronica, too.
