If you know this song- Delta Dawn, by Tanya Tucker...then you are going to laugh.
"All the folks around Brownsville say she's crazy
'Cause she walks down town with a suitcase in her hand
Looking for a mysterious dark- haired man."
All week- I have been dragging my luggage around. I have been transporting stuff from one part of town to anther part of town. it is my NEW "Delta Dawn" get stronger exercise program!
(smiling) It is certain to eliminate those flabby under arm muscles and tighten them right up!
Oh!!! IF you want to have great biceps- then travel upon BART in the morning! You stand holding on for dear life- as the subway train takes off and stops- the whole city HAS gorgeous biceps!!
Just do the commute!!! (grinning)
Everything is a blessin- lesson...It just is. Keep singing- Keep shining- Keep being pure LOVE!!!
And if some one blows you off- doesn't reciprocate in the manner that you feel - You need. Then keep flying...leave them standing there looking at you fly away.
Its simple...So simple.

Good morning Beautiful Luvs!!!
Happy Spring Equinox!
I am blessed to have a room with a glorious view! A room with a glorious large window that lets the sun shine and the sweet cool breeze in! I am blessed to come home to a place where I can share a meal and cook!! My room mate says friends are welcome to come visit! (keep me in mind)

Last night was an incredible night of energy!!!
And I would think about the woman torso and how to suspend her…and how to create the puzzle that is me- and convey to you- the viewer how complicated I am…as I am my art. And how complicated and involved art is. The only way I can convey the labor of love that art is --is to create it beside you.
Everything is art- everything reflects art- it swirls and dips and dives into flies and moves...IT MOVES!!! Art is constantly changing- dancing -growing- becoming---all based upon our OWN cognitive processing!! Ooooooh- It is magic!!! (grinning)
Ramblings with no points...just curvy wild hips of Love!

This past weekend - I was thrilled with the ritual of candles. I purchased 4 lavender candles and was ecstatic to be able to burn them. Thank you Janice for letting me ramble on about them.
I learned from my Beloved Anita (waving) that we should honor the light. When she lights a candle she says something along the lines of this: "God brought light into this world- please bring light into my life." I love that!!! I will always remember the first time Anita lit a candle beside me- her face aglow with the light.
There is an authentic presence to lighting fire. Perhaps we are all connected to the primitive cave man- and to the warmth of it. I get lost in the flames of a camp fire or in our neighborhood- huge bon fires! The fire made shapes and faces that astounded me- I bet Rebecca and Liz still remember the early photos--a very unusual face appeared- and it has always remained with me. Were we living close to burial grounds? (smiling)
There were may nights we sat beside fires- clinking glasses and watching the swirling smoke rise. I do plan to do it again...and I want to laugh and sing and be just as howling crazy!
There is something extra special about flames- all kinds! My Luvs knows my love of candles. I would fill the house with candles on Christmas eve, and we would stay up celebrating and telling stories.
I created a sculpture- some of my closest girl friends remember how we added colored string to the piece of art-we lit candles. It made it a ritual! That memory stays with me. You want me to remember something- then please light some candles. (grinning) I still have her-the sculpture- she is at my dad's place..chill-laxing waiting for my return.
There are candle lit memories that will always remain with me- and huge- GLORIOUS fires that I can still see my loves across the sparks- the heat and heart of the flame...I have neighbors from long ago that are with me every time I light a candle.
When it is time to blow out the candle, I have a ritual of planting seeds of intentions. And then I add my own little request- that the smoke rises and tickles the feet of God- and he sees my request and smiles upon me.
Bring your own rituals back to LIGHT!! Bring the love and light back home. I miss my Louisiana friends- (I am pulling you into a huge hug) God knows I miss you!!! Enjoy the season!! Enjoy the Love- the King cake- the fires of love...
These are just a few of my loves...
David- Margaret- Rost-Anita- Patrick- Teresa- Helen- Margaret-Alex-Karen-Lynn-Ken-Helen-Tom- Jack- Marie Mychal- Arvin-Mykayla- Diane- Bennie-Liz-Becca- Steve-Davie- Emma-Meghan-Brenton-Donna- Terry- Steve- Karen- Greg-Craig-Katie- Kathy-Kim-Richard-Richy- Leon-Edda and Larry- our neighbors on the bayou...
I bow my head before each meal and ask the Lord to Bless the missing parts of my family...YOU are blessed...(and your children as well...the list might have gone on for days- if I started listing children and grandchildren...just saying...
I love y'all!
(Dr.E...I look forward to seeing you across the fire!)
