It has been a wonderful cool Spring, my peonies are opening and I am enjoying the weather. Cool enough in late May to wear a jacket in the afternoon.
I'm sad this time of the year, saying goodbye to the many young faces at school, and realizing that time is fleeting, the kids are growing and changing everyday. It was a year filled with Impressionism, self-portraits, jellyfish, new art tools to conquer, the celebration of Women Artists and the end of the year field trip with Fourth grade to SF Museum of Modern Art. We had a great time, looking at Louise Bourgoise spiders, and enjoying the large hollow form by Richard Serra. I learn something every time I work with the kids. Their tenacity, fearlessness and joy makes it all worthwhile.
Well, we that live in the Bay Area are lucky. I get to visit San Francisco, usher at SF Jazz Center, my home away from home. I met Carol C. a friend of Yvonne Y. at the Lizz Wright Mother's Day concert. Lovely to make new friends. We have a wonder in the Warriors making to the playoffs again this year. With a bunch of luck, we will get to the finals. Those pesky Houston Rockets are a force and it will not be easy, but worthy of the efforts my fellas will make to win.Have a great Spring...Summer's just around the bend.. Denise
