New Beginnings


 A new year, new beginnings. I started taking a Pilates class. Ooo my muscles are sore. But it's a good sore. I've earned that soreness.
And I took a business class for artists last weekend. It was geared towards fine artists, but there was good info, and ideas for getting organized, making and keeping goals.
The next day I got an email that I've been invited to be in a gallery show. How's that for timing? More to come on that later, but it'll be at Collector Gallery , on College Avenue in Berkeley, in the spring.

Today is Inauguration Day, another beginning. I got up to watch the events. I wanted to here what Obama would say, and I admit I love to see what Michelle and her girls are wearing. I LOVE those solid, rich colors, fuschia, lavender, navy blue, and Grandma in peach. Gorgeous together against the backdrop of winter.
Beyonce and James Taylor? Terrific.
And Richard Blanco's poem, One Day.   Here is the last stanza...

We head home: through the gloss of rain or weight
of snow, or the plum blush of dusk, but always—home,
always under one sky, our sky. And always one moon
like a silent drum tapping on every rooftop
and every window, of one country—all of us—
facing the stars
hope—a new constellation
waiting for us to map it,
waiting for us to name it—together.
