...at the One Of A Kind Show with my BFF at the Merchandise Mart! It's our yearly sojourn to play hooky and wander around miles and miles of the 6th floor of the Mart, ooohing and ahhhing over fabulous works of art by incredible artists from all over the world. Our pockets may be somewhat shallow but our hearts and eyes are huge when it comes to appreciating beautiful things. Last year, the pandemic made it impossible for everyone to participate. We were so excited to get to go back, as were all the artists, who had an energy that was palpable for being able to be back at the Mart, proudly displaying their wares and welcoming an appreciative crowd. A marvelous day. And when we left, the sun was just going down and made this beautiful picture over the river.
...Lee's Summit, Missouri last week. OH MY GOODNESS!!! What an amazing cast and crew! Such a fun and fabulous job! What a gift. This is Thanksgiving week. Feeling especially thankful....for everything. I hope you are too.
...astounds me at every turn. My fabulous boyfriend changed my oil (not a euphemism! ;-) man, he's the BEST!), and as we were cleaning up, this sunset happened. We both just stood there in awe as the darkness descended. It was glorious....so peaceful and beautiful.
.....cool?!?! At dusk, the sun was peeping around the corner of our cottage, and my camera, for whatever reason, created these fab sun flowers! And what is that -- an alien spaceship??? Love the tricks of light! I hope your day is full of fabulous discoveries :-)
...update! Very excited to see that the pilot I was fortunate enough to be a part of, Complete Bull, which shot in Iowa during the heart of the pandemic (I felt totally safe and everyone was respectful of distancing and masking) is a part of this festival in Minnesota! I won't be able to go, sadly, but you can join in iffen ya wanna, either in person or virtually. The link for tickets and questions about this festival is in the picture below. Congratulations to everyone involved in this fabulous project! Now, fingers crossed that it gets picked up by someone!!!
...Thursday to you. I had my first in-person audition yesterday!!! It was a joy to be at a casting director's office! With people!! I love the fine folks at O'Connor Casting. They are really terrific. Boy, the difference between being in a room with that energy versus self-taping at home...hard to describe how different it is and what it does to an audition. They want to stay open and have auditions...so get vaccinated if you haven't. If you haven't gotten vaccinated, what's holding you back? Look at the science. Invest in the facts. Have a beautiful day.
....oh, butterfly :-) I've seen so many butterflies this summer! More monarchs than I can remember, thankfully due to folks who took it to heart to plant milkweed in their gardens. As I type, three monarchs just drifted by my window. They make me smile and lift my spirits. Wishing you a day of beauty in your heart and soul.
....called bachelor buttons, which some call cornflowers, popped up throughout the gorgeous wildflower garden I'm compelled to walk past and investigate every day. Oh, the color!! And the intricacies!! Delightful :-)
