Things are getting more and more eccentric at Casa de la Swain. Changing styles in my textile work, falling in love again with painting and photography...and then there is the ever illusive quest for continuing creativity through working with Eric Maisel. Still on the road teaching, posting now at the Ragged Cloth Cafe and taking the pledge to keep handmaiden up to date.

Happy b'Day to all the Scorpios

Whopee! I made through another year! Here's a few words of wisdom for all who share my sign.

Birthdays are the tolling of
A bell that marks the coming of
A time of festive joy and love,
A time to treasure life and love.

So come and celebrate with me
The circumstance that makes me, me:
The moment when I came to be,
And what I now have come to be.

What I would give to look like this. Of course, Lauren Bacall was 19 when I was born.

I never make New Year's Resolutions. Instead, I do mental housekeeping on my birthday. I am working on them as you read.....the times they are a changin'

Happy Birthday fellow "49er! Beat ya though, I blew threw that redlight last month 10/14. It's always interesting to think about having been born in the Forties.

HB2U & 2ME. One comforting thought (for you) -- I'll always be older than you!
