Peace Tree of Life and 28 Years of Marriage

Catfish and I are taking off for a long weekend to celebrate our 28th Anniversary. We are going to relax in Encinitas at Moonlight Beach. It will be so nice just to watch and listen to the ocean. 28 years is a long time - we have been through a lot together and still have a good time when we are able. We have several small, low key adventures planned and I am sure that we will return home refreshed and inspired. I think we are both pretty damn lucky to have one another to love and to share life with. We fit.


I mentioned some time back that I was working on a painting. It took most of July and August for me to finish it between all of the other things that were going on but the time spent was restful and enjoyable. When it was finished I had it professionally matted and framed and sent it off to my cousin for whom it was intended. You will find her art blog, "The Hillbilly
Artist's Folk Art From The Mountains" listed under Visual Arts in my right hand side bar. Please pay her a visit for a look-see.

I have two of her paintings that I just love. When I tried to purchase on
e of them she gave it to me and just asked that I make her something someday. Months went by with no inspiration until one night during the first week of July when I dreamed a painting. "Peace Tree of Life" is pictured below first all by itself and then matted and framed. Art runs in our family and so do dreams.


Peace Tree of Life



And so I bid you adieu for now. I'll be back at my blogging post sometime next week. Peace.

A great painting, and how wonderful that you managed to stay married for so long. The only thing I have had that long is some cellulite that is parked on my thighs. Congrats.

Yes, you are lucky to have each other, but you're also a standard for others to achieve. Marriages like yours don't "litter the landscape" like they used to. be safe, be proud....be happy! I salute you!!

Dam, never knew you were an artist! I'm very impressed! Good for you and Catfish. Enjoy. I, too, am lucky in love, but it took me a while to find her.

Have fun. Come back refreshed an re-energized. The road is long and the fight will be hard fought.

Love to you and yours,

d.
