1995, I returned to the east coast after 11 years in Hawaii, I thought I planned it perfectly. Fly back in March and avoid a NJ winter. Now we all know that you can get snow into early April around here. But that year it worked. It was cold and gray but spring came around before I knew it.

The following winter was another story. We got slammed with snow repeatedly. Deep white snow and lots of it. Pretty and exciting at first. Somewhere midpoint I was not a happy camper and found solace with Lambchop my surfing bunny who made the move with me east, and making art. Watching and drawing, painting and printing crows. Crows are resilient and family oriented. Many of those pieces have found homes, I recently discovered Snowblind #7 in my flat files.

Stay warm, stay resilient ( I did just get a notification that flights from Philadelphia to Honolulu are around $600 RT these days…)

and be thankful for family and our new furnace.

    I love the ravens! Or crows or whatever. They have great energy and mystery. I’m working on one now. Call me When you get a chance. Happy new year! It really feels like a new year for me.

      Is it that east coast is home to crows and out west- ravens? Whatever they are- black, beautiful and resourceful. So good to catch up. What does your perfect day look like?

    Hi Nanc,
    I remember those lovely Hawaii days and on an expense account no less😄. Thanks for taking me under your wing.
    I was on a cruise out of Ft Lauderdale, I got out of there in the nick of time. I hate sitting in an airport and hearing that 3,000 flights have been cancelled✈️

    Happy New Year my dear friend🍾🎉
