* Around Town ...

I attended a meditation group at Life Path this morning which was just what I needed.  When I came out, Kathleen and Ivan were waiting for me which was  absolutely just what I needed.  We all went for a wonderful breakfast at Monet's, which was definitely just what we needed. 

Kathleen and I stayed down town and strolled here and there, enjoying each other's company, the sunshine and the shops.

A few photo's of interesting places, shops, and people.

Kathleen's favorite humming bird feeder.

Some 'grumpy woman' at the humming bird feeder store.  HA!

Interesting people.

A jewelry maker who also makes the fabulous hats she is wearing.

Couldn't resist a second shot, she was so charming.

More interesting people.
Did I tell you my new camera is ordered?  I think so.  Now I am begging my mail service office to please get it out of Laredo FAST!  I can't wait six to eight weeks -- please, please, please!  So .. here's hoping.  

That's it for today.  Take care .. make art ... be happy.  Thanks for stopping by.  xxoo  Donna

"I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or
catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."
