I was in Boston and again did not make it to the cemeteries😡❗️
But I was at the Hynes Center for DADD Showcase: Expressions of Neurodiversity in Art Panel and exposition Thursday, (April 20, 2017.)
After showing there, 4 of my paintings are moving on to AANE. Some will be reproduced in creative centerpieces, on the tables during the fundraising event next Saturday Apr. 29, 2017 (the Gala) and all are available for purchase.
My morning commute to Boston from Connecticut was not only an early one but also was a long one –due to traffic delays but Al got me there on time. I approached Elizabeth with this greeting: “I have got to pee SO bad!”
It wasn’t easy getting going this morning because I was more “off” than usual, having swollen sore eyes and face, and some cognitive deficits for various reasons.
Here is a close-up of my blouse which had rhinestones.

She volunteers so much of her time. As Al says,

She’s genuine. Here she is, seated, as Vito speaks, and one of my paintings is on an easel behind her.
-my frustration at the electoral process,
-the Paris agreement changes, etc.

crying women and animated howling trees.
You can see here my video being played on screen. It’s funny how freeze frame happens at inopportune moments. I NEVER take a ‘good’ picture. I’m cursed that way. What mattered was the message and that seemed to get across.
and John, right.
Buildings try to touch the clouds. This photo sorta reminded me of the Beatles’ iconic album cover. Sorta.
See it there with the blue plastic hair? That’s the one I got. My collection is booming. I could insert the joke now about getting my ducks in a row.
When I got home, this had come in the mail:
Thanks Clay.💛 I’m almost ready to put them to good use. Last year I had several hives. Hoping for the same.

And some short ‘minute and a 1/2’ in length videos will come up. There are 8 in total and they should be viewed in the proper sequence of one through eight.
That’s all for now.
