Eye Candy

This is one of my favorite pictures. I took it of the ceiling of the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas two summers ago. A friend and I were celebrating the completion of our Master's program with a two day trip to the city that never sleeps. I was captivated by the ceiling of the lobby...unlike anything I had ever seen. The 'flowers' were done by a very famous glass-blowing artist (I don't recall his name currently, but do a search of the Bellagio and you'll certainly find him). I took a lot of pictures of the ceiling, always trying to find the perfect shot. I stood there and just stared at it for the longest see something different each minute. Like looking up at a field of rainbow flowers!

A day of a lot of colors...emotions. I called on J for some fatherly advice...and he was wonderful. Very insightful, very honest, very knowledgeable. I needed that advice.

Last night I went to a friend's house for dinner. She has an absolutely amazing's cozy, it's so comfortable, so inviting, so beautiful! I walked it and didn't even get 3 feet inside before dropping my jaw in wonder and amazement! K is a fabulous woman....self-assured, smart, full of energy, kind-hearted and cute as a bug! She's the type of girlfriend that you feel like you've known for a long time. Nice, huh? Her back yard was charming, pretty, inviting and soothing to the spirit. K made the nicest dinner of chicken with mushrooms, a beautiful salad with walnuts, blue cheese crumbles and cranberries (pretty as a picture out of Martha's book), toasted bread and yummy asparagus drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The dinner was a treat! Oh, and a bowl of fresh fruit for dessert.....yum-E! I had the time of my life touring K's home and girl talking about everything from paint to men to real estate to shopping - all sorts of things. It was food for my soul and spirit and I will always be deeply grateful to her for sharing her home and herself with me. A beautiful evening, indeedy.

Busy week ahead with tough items to take care of. Can do it. Will do it. Focus and center.
