I found this fun sketch that I did. It was in an artwork folder with things I’d painted several years ago. It’s rather adorable, I think, so I just felt like sharing it. I love Ojai, it i such a lovely home for me. I cant’ think of a better place for me, in these times, in these days. I much say, I have been very lucky to have lived in such wonderful places. I grew up in Corona del Mar,  one of the more beautiful beach towns of California. It was a very special little  little enclave many years ago and remains so today. Then I moved to Maui for a year or two. After that, I went to Aspen, Colorado. I met my husband to be, there. We got married, bought a beautiful, soulful home on a little creek, near the airport. We raised our three kids there. What a a glorious place that was. Blue sky and sunshine, even in the middle of winter. It would snow at night and be bright and magical during the day. And the summers were green and lush. rivers rushing from the run snowy peaks run off. The cool breeze blowing gently off the mountains, all summer long, it was natural air-condition. And now, here, in Ojai. Back in California, in the nest of the moon. I can’t think of a more sublime and peaceful place to be. It is a mystical and magical place, where I can enjoy running my little shop, playing in my art studio, and having all these lovely friends that stop by to share their love, heart to heart, to with me.
