Springtime New

A Day in My Life


  • Pull up a chair and join me as I see, discuss, and create:
  • An early morning walk in a new neighborhood brings discovery around every corner and the silence to hear the birds as they gather for their nests. Wondrous flowers bloom in early light.


  • My appointment for acupuncture is next. This is new for me. I am finding it helpful as I sleep through the night for the first time in years. More to discover as I learn about my body’s pathways.
  • Sometimes I miss an Art Walk and like to visit the exhibits during the month. Next it is time to view some exhibits in Claremont, CA on a beautiful day with a slight breeze. I park a distance to enjoy a walk through the city.
  • “Women in Print” at the Claremont Community Foundation explores textures, colors, story, symbol, and various ways to work in printmaking.


  • Stephen A. Rybacki mixed-media art at Buddhamouse Emporium captures me in its mystery and mark-making. I also enjoy Sumi Foley’s foxes in textiles at Bunny Gunner Gallery and Elizabeth Carr’s exploration of working larger in abstract collages at Studio C. It is good to observe what other artists are creating to spark new ideas.
  • I have coffee with a new friend to discuss performance art. I want to do this new form for me with my book “Moon of Many Petals.” I just attended a theater workshop through the University of Riverside and have been attending break-out group discussions. The idea is beginning to form. My friend helps to expand and define some possible directions.


  • Last stop is The Grove House at Pitzer College. The craftsman-style house creates a great environment for a reading by Zinzi Clemons. She shares from her first novel “What we Lose.” I am interested in her different approach as she wrote this novel in fragments that can stand alone. Zinzi is the spring visiting writer. I could tell her students enjoy her. They have good questions. She likes to edit and spent a year editing this book. It began as one project and switched to this personal story.
  • From nature to art to performance to words – an enriching day.
