Dream a little dream of me.

Happy New Year!  It's 2016 and I am hoping that this year will be another great year for me.  I have selected the word DREAM to be my word this year.  I need to dream more, and dream big.

Like 2015, the year has started off with death. My mom passed away last Tuesday. She was 84, and it had been a struggle for the last few years with her health, and the last few months were very hard, with her bouncing back and forth between a rehab facility and ICU at the hospital. We had a great visit with her on Christmas Day when she was back at rehab, and it was a good day for her. That was our last visit with her before she passed away, so we have happy memories to end on.

Cleaning through old family things has brought me the following photo, one I didn't think existed. It's a photo of me and my brother, I was five and my brother was four years old.The best part about this photo is that I am wearing my blue daisy raincoat.  This raincoat was very special for me. So special I devoted a page in my art journal, trying to recreate it from memory.  See how close I got to the real thing:


  1. Great photo. I don't even remember this one.

  2. You nailed the raincoat! It's amazing even before you had the photo too!
