Lest we forget

Remembering all who fought and lost their lives, remembering all who came home.

With gratitude, I remember my grandfather in law who fought and was wounded at the Somme in WW 1, my father in law who drove trucks in WW 2 through liberated Europe and who could never speak about what he saw. 

My parents, both still very active, served... my father in the Merchant Marines up and down the Atlantic Coast and my mother in the Womens Division of the Air Force, stationed on the west coast watching for enemy planes. I was fortunate to go to a reunion of these women a few years ago .... what a group, how young they were during the war  and how young at heart they were at the reunion, all of them well into their 80's. 

To all our veterans from all the wars thank you!
Let our future be filled be peace.

So the time has changed back to standard and it is awfully dark out at 5.30! We are enjoying nice warm weather so that is a bonus. 

I have a commission of Sumi-e fish that is working well. Always a challenge to take a commission ... never sure if you are going to be able to be successful. 

Getting ready for the next show....Singing Ink: An Exhibition of Oriental Brush Painting.  

Details are here and on this invitation. 

If your in the area stop by...it is always a great show.
