My Life

I've been pretty busy lately ... again.

For the first time, I attended Art Night Austin, which was really cool. It was sort of like a gallery hop, with food and wine at each gallery and a limo bus to take you from one place to the next. I had a lot of fun and got to dress up, which is a plus for me! (Occasionally, of course. The flip flops would get lonely.)

I played harps at an angel therapy (meditation) class! The music was beautiful, and it was easy to create wonderful music. You just have to strum your fingers - on a harp, there aren't any bad notes! I absolutely loved it! It felt like home! They pretty much had to pull my hands off the harp and say, "It's time to go!" I could have stayed all night!

I went to a friend's bridal shower at Fado, an Irish pub. Cute location. And the reason for it is they are getting married on St. Patrick's Day! Fun, Fun! But, unfortunately, I don't have a green dress for it ... ;)

I really enjoyed a performance by singer and songwriter Erin Ivey - "Austin's urban folk sweetheart" - at a fundraiser for a good friend. Listen to "Chocolate."

I also went to a speech by a psychic writer. I was curious to see how she blended the psychism and the writing. I was impressed by how open people were to what she had to say. Almost everyone had some experience they wanted to share about themselves, a loved one, or a pet. I just let them talk; I sat quietly and listened. ;)

Sounds like fun. You do know Erin is the Reid's Cleaners girl?

That's what I heard, but I'd never seen the commercial. I just watched the clip online; it's cute!
