And so now, tonight, we go into 2021. What a year 2020 has been. Its a pleasure, a joy, a happening to leave it behind. The virus has taken too many lives and now they say there is another strain of the same. There has been a lot of unnecessary brutality by police, climate change is doing its thing, KoKo died on May 24th, schools have been closed, people can't gather even tho they are doing it anyway and this is just a mention of all that happened in 2020. But Trump is out of office, a positive. Sometimes I think we have to go thru bad to get to good, I think its dark before dawn, I think we have to crawl before we walk but I believe if we have faith, if we believe then we do overcome. Many say life is a bitch and then you die...well here we are but they also say, it ain't over til the fat lady sings. Is she singing?
I am 4 credits away from my Masters degree. So by June of 2021 if devastation is not too great, I will be 75 with a Masters. What then? I do have a tendency to go with the flow, maybe follow the wind so I don't know what I will do next. But I will be doing something, that's for sure!!! So Happy New Year and here's to 2021!!!
I haven't been painting, only looking at it and actually thinking of how to finish my work in progress. I feel like when I really get into it, it will be time to put it down again, but when I'm done with school I can devote my time to my creative side. So yeah, I do have something to look forward to..thank goodness!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021

This is a work in progress but its my tribute to 2020. I call her MOAMOA!
This year has been very difficult with a virus sweeping the world and causing people to be out of work, putting children in harms way by sending them back to school which is a very hard decision and even though I'm not the parent of a young child, it still troubles me. Many people in nursing homes have died without their families. People in hospitals have died without their families. I just believe heaven must be full and with a lot of sad people. KoKo left me back in May after 14 years and that is still a heavy pain. But on top of all the troubles, I have faith that everything will be alright. It has to be!

I am painting a little again. This feels right. My degree is being obtained thru bookwork, not my work so it feels good to have something to fall back on. Thank you Mr. Brice, and the other good out of my painting is my daughter, (Bianca) is a painter. She's excellent mentally, but I'm really glad to see she doesn't mind creating. Its a beautiful thing. So, Happy New Year and Happy New Year. Love to you all.
AND, HERE I AM IN 2018...WHITE HAIR AND ALL....
