Just a brief post, for those who know my current domestic situation , my home-life has been less than halcyon. David and I moved to San Diego to better tend to his mother. It would be safe to say it has been less than rewarding. After mutual agreement amongst all parties we are moving along.
All I can say is Hallelujah!
Although we had made plans to move next June to Portland we are now heading back to Los Angeles, a move that makes me very happy. I’m excited to be back in a liberal , enthusiastic and forward looking environment with a vital arts culture. Plus David’s practice is in Beverly Hills and we will actually be able to have dinner with one another every evening-I’ve really missed that.
Our new home is walking distance to LACMA-heaven after the cultural wasteland of East County San Diego. I’m saddened that our well laid plains to the Pacific Northwest have been stalled but perhaps the old gods are directing us to follow the light of LA.
In the throes of dissatisfaction with my personal situation I made this unkind doodle of the mother-in-law (with her evil cat MaryLou)-I know a puerile prank, but hard to resist.
My petulance has subsided and my newest demoness is softer and gentler, she is part of a study for a large complex painting I plan on starting when I settle in.
I’m up to my ears in packing supplies and puppies eager to play with empty boxes. I am making grand progress, almost 80 boxes just for our books. The following image shows that even Our Lord and Savior is safely packed and ready for His new digs.
Christ in a Box
I most likely will not be posting until after the dust has settled in our new home. It all seems like such a fresh start, just moments ago I sold our second car as it is a difficult to park in our new neighborhood and the bus line stops almost at my front door. I have been giving lip service to a greener way of living, now I am giving it a shot.
Wish me luck!
Until next time, take care,
