Maiko whispering

study for new painting

Well, I've successfully killed another plant in my attempts to bring an early spring to our apartment.  Cabin fever is hitting me pretty hard lately, I probably don't help the situation by watching lots of No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain episodes or picking up travel agent pamphlets.  

But I'm more excited about getting married! (Wow, never thought I'd say that)  I think about it every time I look at my engagement ring, which of course, is the hand I hold the drawing paper with, and that amounts to like a bajillion times a day.

In an attempt to become more feminine, I've recently taken up fan dancing! 

Recently commissioned shoes, by one of my favorite patrons

I've been getting back into the Beta Band lately - if you haven't heard them, you should immediately stop what you are doing, run out to where ever it is you buy CDs anymore, and get all their records.  Here is a sampling for you ...
