Happy Holidays and All That Jazz…

I’m getting ready for another Black Friday in retail, today, but in Connecticut instead of NYC.  Yes, the move is final now…..I’m in Connecticut.  I had my first Thanksgiving with a working oven in about 10 years..and let me tell you, turkey cooked in a crock pot, just isn’t the same.

Ah, Connecticut…..

Home.  🙂

So, when last I was working on a drawing, it was the rainbow from last summer.  Let me tell you, I am itching to work on it again…but right now, I don’t have my drawing materials all in the same place.  Artwork is similar to an addiction for me, if I don’t do it, my peace of mind shatters and I get into a a withdrawal type funk.

But life goes on.  I said I’d never leave New York, but after 20 years, I did.  So, I won’t say I will never go back…if the circumstances are right.  Let me tell you, it’s a city where you need lots of $$$ to live a decent life, otherwise, it’s the dumps.

Well, maybe it’s not so bad after all….

I’m going to be brave and post “Grand Central, Sunday Morning”, despite my misgivings. I see some merit in it, for what it’s worth. Also, some work that I’ve hated, others have loved. So for what it’s worth.

In the meantime, Grand Central Terminal is really hopping for the holiday season. It was so freaking crowded yesterday, that getting a cup of coffee was not worth the wait in the long lines. Long lines to the ladies’ room, too, but couldn’t avoid that.

I answered an ad in Craigslist for someone to work pro bono doing artwork for an organization that’s working on regenerative medicine. So, it’s a topic of healing, right up my alley. Going to talk to someone on Sunday to find out what this is all about.
