Here’s to You!

Just a wee glimpse into my magical life where dreamquests are all begun in the groovy comfort of my collapsible pyramid.  I have had a pyramid since 1984 in one form or another.  This incarnation of my dream chamber, I rather love.  Being surrounded by art is about being greatly inspired.  

Happy New Year!  Thanks for your ongoing support and here’s wishing you the very best this year!  Sweet dreams as ever!

Something about that tone of blue makes me think 0f  and puts me in the mood for John Coltrane’s creative genius.  I love this piece.

At the time, I was fast asleep and, of course, dreaming – after having riotously ploughed the artist late at night at his loft.  The piece was created from a photograph – Polaroid, if I am not mistaken.  Hard to believe that it was 24 years ago… phenomenal.

I especially love it because the artist exquisitely captures the expressiveness of both my feet and hands.  Too, I love that my lids are collapsed on those soulful eyes whose vision captures such astonishing vistas of imagination and intellect.

Hey… modesty is of negligible worth.

Indeed, from Otto van Veen, to Sir Peter Paul Rubens to George Hawken, I am fulfilled for having been a muse and passionate lover.
