7 Winners 11 Addictions

An award! The children and I are thrilled to receive our Art Award bestowed by the energetic and talented Eleni of A Pink Dreamer. Eleni's website is a going concern of art journals and drawings, care and kindness. Blessings!

It really is a changing world we live in, where we can connect with talent and soon to be friends from many countries, at our wee keyboards; perhaps, in time, this will be a tiny step toward tolerance and peace. Eleni, Thank you!

As tradition dictates I think it is our turn to list our addictions and to pass this award on to 5 (or is it now 7) other artists and, so here goes:

Five (ok 11) of my addictions
lattes and frappes
ok, not just lattes, food actually; good food, slow food, italian food, greek food, indian food, thai food, mom's food.. most food (oh and red wine).. did i say figs.. home baked bread

dreamy colours

barely there teacup blue, soft Italian yellow - those colours that affect you, make you flush when you gaze upon them

sleeping husbands
mine, when you can almost see the boy he once was, still is..
also his laughter, his smile, his all encompassing hugs

sleeping children
my children, when you can see where
angles wings have brushed their faces..
all children.. being a mother, a matriarch

when you can see to the other side..
where you get a glimpse of the soul

friends in the hot tub.. more food

old things
linens, marble chunks, photos

art, creating, giving, receiving, daydreaming of

the written word
writing, prose, poetry, reading, language, thesaurus

cardio, abs, running, hiking, skiing, dance,
most sports, my kids sports

beauty, fun, flowers, fields of flowers, milk bottles of flowers, tulips.. anything i enjoy and i want more of

oops, i'm getting carried away.. more importantly..
