Just had a few moments, so thought I'd drop a line. In San Diego, been teaching some classes at Stamping Details. DiAnn the owner has been great as has the group of students. Though I used to live in the L.A./ Orange County area, its been quite a long time since I was last in S.D. In fact my last memory was of sailing in the harbor with my grandfather (the same one that I mention in my "notes from an alchemist" section of my book). I was in third grade. It was last time I was with my grandfather. I miss him still. He was one of those guys who never feared life...he lived every moment. Every moment I spent with him was an adventure. My parents were quite protective...he was the guy who would sneak me out an do all the fun against the rules stuff.
In fact...did you ever see The Royal Tenenbaums? The Gene Hackman character was like my
grandfather (lots of flaws but an amazing personality), in particular the scenes where he is sneaking out with his overly protected grandchildren, doing all the things that parents would cringe at...by the way if you haven't seen the film...you should.
Next stop Idyllwild....it will be a nice relaxing week up the in the mountains above Palm Springs.
I just bought a new camera...so I've been doing a little playing...here's a few photos.
Also, I know that there are a ton of Red Velvet groupies who visit my blog. It actually amazes me how many students come up to me and say..."I love your girlfriend's blog". So if you haven't been over there, you really should check it out. Judy just finished another visual anthology and yes it is, once again phenomenal. She is one amazing woman with quite a bit to say...and everything she says she says with all her heart. Kiss Kiss to Judy.
