Day 317…

12 x 12 oils on canvas

I know you want more blues. I will tomorrow. I promise. Today, however you get gold and reds. 
I want to thank everyone who has been spoiling me this week for my birthday. So far, I have had a great birthday week,  and I LIKE IT. 
It has taken me a long time to understand and appreciate a birthday (especially as you age) as I do today. If you are reading this and you are young (or younger than me anyway) take one thing away from tonight’s blog…

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– What A Ride!

..hopefully you will not waste as much time as I have!
