I have just finished Summer Grad-Nite Parties, i.e. doing henna after midnight. As I watch the bats find their way home in the predawn light, I ponder my life as an artist and writer. I am working each month at Fremont First Friday Art Walks, continuing to up grade and promote my Charman Chronicles, taking Tai-Chi, cooking organic vegan entrees and working my day-job full time. I am glad the days are longer, I can pretend I have more time.
