Belated Happy Mothers Day & Hiatus

A Belated Happy Mothers Day
to all who nourish, love and devote themselves to two and four legged beings.

These photos are what I wore Saturday when I went to the Berkeley Rep Theater for Red - a brilliant, engaging, raw, emotional play about Mark Rothko, the Abstract Expressionist painter, during 1958-59, when he was painting the 30 Seagram Murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant in NYC.  The 30, largely 8ft x 6ft, paintings never hung at the restaurant.  The play is the dramatic story of why not.

As followers know, I just turned 70 and am giving a BIG party for 120 in two weeks at the Berkeley Yacht Club with many out-of-town family & friends.  So… I have been & will continue to be very busy preparing for the four days of festivities.  The major project for this week is to identify & digitize photos for the slide show that will be showing during the event.  Reluctantly, I will not be posting for a while.  I always wish there were more hours in the day because life offers so many rich, engaging & fun things to do.
Alas & alack, I cannot fit in all I love to do.   For the next two weeks the Party is taking priority over my BLOG.  But I will be back soon.
