I have of late and wherefore I know not become enchanted by color and image. I find this odd and revelatory (to me) because I have always been a language person above all. Last night I had fun ordering Park Lane jewelry from a friend who is also a dynamite saleswoman. I realized afterwards that the three pieces I bought mirror the colors of one of my favorite works of art by my mentor in the Pauline family, Sister Margaret Charles Kerry. Trying to get life to imitate art? Heh.
Ch-ch-ch–changes! We sold our Delaware house, got COVID, recovered, took our winter road trip to Alabama 🏡 in March (almost spring). We are settling here nicely, we will be headed back to Maryland for an extended visit with kids in May. But meanwhile we’re getting cars tagged in AL, new Alabama license plates, change of address on all our credit cards. I miss having no sales tax in Delaware! All my online shopping now incurs sales tax which is just… NO! Ah, bite the bullet.
i set up my Alabama home office and art studio in one of the two extra bedrooms. Seeing Gabe and her kids all the time, doing video chats with the northern grandkids.
Sweet home Alabama. Somehow, this being now the only property we own, it feels like home.
