Calendars -- I've kept daily calendars since high school -- and by "kept" I mean in a drawer. I can tell you where I was and what I was doing any day of any year for the past four decades. Nerdy, I know.
California -- I love this state. We moved here from the midwest when I was in elementary school, so I'm not a native, but have spent most of my life here. It has it all -- beaches, forests, mountains, deserts, quiet nature or exciting city life. Quirks and all, I stand by California.
Here is glamorous Violet. Silly girl -- I set my tote bag and suitcase on my window seat when I returned home from Florida a couple days ago and Violet couldn't wait to make herself at home in the bag!
Creativity -- Where would we be without creativity? It's been a touchstone throughout my life. This word embraces inventions, art, music, progress, problem solving, decorating, educating -- so many avenues. Everyone has the ability to be creative, and what is so cool is that it can take so many different forms! My friends and family engage in so many admirable pursuits: one daughter writes books, another writes songs, one creates tunes on the piano, another takes amazing photos. Some of my friends make beautiful quilts, some have enviable gardens, one takes oil painting lessons in her retirement.
