I love the cool, smooth feeling of glass objects when I hold them after they've made it through the entire process of creation, from molten hot, to cold. I am forever mesmerized by idea of freezing a design in heat. With my art, I progress in technique slowly - my... Continue reading

They had not ceased this afternoon when I walked into the wood and got into bright, miraculous sunshine, in shelter from the roaring wind." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson. Yes…there are still miracles, despite the chaos going on around us. It's nice to remember... Continue reading

Happy Mother's Day. I hope everyone who cares and nurtures others feels appreciated today. Amidst a blur of some life complications - I mean, when don't we have life complications? But anyway, let's just say these complications took more than the usual amount of my brain capacity, and so this... Continue reading

"I am Responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to... Continue reading

As I write this post, it's already 2013 in some parts of the world. Will it be a happy year for those who have passed the final hours of 2012? I wonder. Is this even a realistic goal in a world that seems to be so caught up in hatred,... Continue reading

I'm about half-way though my tenure as a Public Delegate-designate to the UN General Assembly. Yes, I am still calling myself a 'designate' because the Senate has not confirmed us yet. I believe they've been otherwise occupied. they'll get around to it. Meanwhile, we function with the title of Special... Continue reading

It's 8:17am on a Monday morning, and by now, I'd be having my last sip of coffee, and checking to see that I have everything I need in my briefcase, including my security badges -- before walking the three short blocks to my office at the US Mission to the... Continue reading

I am embarking on a remarkable adventure - one I never dreamed I'd be experiencing, yet here I am.

These vessels are newly hand-blown, and have been "boxed" in a special kiln, called an annealer, where they'll cool down over night. I'm back at it after nearly two months away, and I admit it, I'm jazzed. Everything about the creative process of hot glass work intrigues and fascinates me.... Continue reading

As many of you can see from my posts, I took some of my kids and grandkids to Africa. To say it was a thrill, would be like attempting to describe the deliciousness of the feel of a baby's skin by calling it merely soft. When one hears a journey... Continue reading

I like it when I see my grandkids. I don't see them all that often now. They have school, of course, and busy lives of their own, and since our Friday family night ritual has kind of fallen by the wayside -- we don't have regularly scheduled family gatherings. And... Continue reading

So I would like to offer my warmest wishes and light and love to you and your family as you dream and prepare for the moments, days and months ahead. It's nice to see that you have such a nice support group of loving friends and family around you. :)
So delighted to wander in and pay a visit when there is so much love and good news around...especially now, just after Mother's Day. How appropriate!

Happy Mother's Day. It's been a calm and lovely day out here at the beach. My gang is spread around...my first is in New Orleans with her hubby, riding around with the band. My second came for a visit with her two, and my third appeared with his cute little... Continue reading
