"I am playing with myself,
I am playing with the world's soul,
I am the dialogue between myself and el espiritu del mundo.
I change myself, I change the world."

Grand Opening!


We had the most beautiful day for the opening! It was sunny and warm (in the seventies), and we had a wonderful turn out. The above picture is one of the few minutes I was able to spend with Susan--basically, I grabbed her from out of a group of women and asked one of them to take our picture. I'm always thinking of you, bloggy friends. Aren't we cute in our orange shirts?

The walk in crowd was substantial. It was a gorgeous day and there were three conventions in town. And, we had these guys. . .


Susan hired these two lovely men to play music. They are both established local musicians who often play with Jim Cullum ("Live from the Riverwalk" for you NPR listeners). They played a bunch of jazz standards, and they pulled the people in from all over La Villita.


We also had many people from the arts community and a few of our friends stop in to wish Susan well. She felt loved and affirmed, I believe, which is worth a great deal.

And, I got two offers for catering parties--so I guess the refreshments went off well. Thanks for your good thoughts, friends!

Hey looks fabulous, all of it and you guys too! Congrats. I'm so glad it went well.

Oh also was talking up Susan's talent and wondered if you could reshare the link to her Webgallery? MIL is interested in looking and she actually does buy art.
