We go from rain to glorious sunshine here in the Northwest. Above is a picture just a few days ago as I was off to the beach to pick up my daughter from her sailing lesson. Today we have beautiful sunshine. I am anxiously awaiting the listing of ArtFest classes that will be posted tomorrow. I hope to hear from some of you if you plan on attending. Also drop me a line if you will be at Art & Soul in Portland or ArtFiberFest in Port Townsend in October. I would love to meet or see you again.

If you haven't read the Somerset Blogging issue...go out and get it. A ton of eye candy and thoughtful writing on why these artists blog. I had posted on a blog of one of the writers about her comments pertaining to being photographed, and she emailed me back almost immediatley...how cool is that. Blogging makes our world so small and I love how it connects us all. If you read a blog regularly be sure and post a note to say "Hi!". I think we all wonder is anyone reading this? I believe blogging has replaced the sewing bees that used to happen years ago. A way to connect even if virtually with other artsy souls.

I met with a back specialist after my MRI and I will be on medication and physical therapy for a while and hope to get back to normal and if not...then other option is an epidural. Last option is disk replacement, but I am seriously praying that will not be necessary.

Here is hoping you are enjoying the weather in your area!

I am happy to hear your back is doing better, i was actually wondering how you were doing earlier today. We are a little cloudy here but it is welcome since it is usually about 115 this time of year! So here is my Hello :) and i hope you continue to get better :) Jen Gabaldon

Just a note to let you know that I do read your blog regularly and enjoy it. I am enjoying our lovely weather here in the northwest (my figs and peaches are ripe!!) and wish you good luck with your back.

I was just wondering last night how your back was doing...I'm glad to hear you have several treatment options and hope you find one that works well.

I'm in SD this week and the weather is phenomenal - you must come and visit when winter hits the Northwest!

I am going to go to ArtFest! Jen will not be going with me this time. She can't go :( I would love to hang with you again. And I have been a faithful reader of your blog since ArtNest!
