This is a first for me…writing a blog. But why not? I keep a running journal daily and have for years. I am an admirer of Danny Gregory and have signed up for his upcoming Sketchbook Skool on Word Press, which offers a blog site. I write poetry and human interests stories, many for my home town paper. And I paint, in many mediums. Yesterday I began a watercolor of boats in Glorietta Bay, down the street from me in Coronado, California. The weather here is mild, and I realize much of the country is suffering with frigid temps and snow. I know what cold is, being a native Nebraskan. I have started to write a piece on the mis-adventures of a good friend back home. Life is good.
