It was another day of an unemployed person trying to get healthcare and mailing prints of artwork to wonderful, supportive friends. Mailing stuff is slowly becoming a full time job! Now, if I could get healthcare from the post office....
I am thankful for all the art I did drag back home from Morocco. How could I know the work would generate interest and funds for a trip to Nicaragua? My life is certainly interesting with all its twists and turns! I was laughing with my host family at dinner tonight that in Morocco I had been living quite close to Timbuktu, south of Morocco. Yep, there really is a Timbuktu!
I also had two amazing Skype calls today. One was from two friends who have remained in Morocco. It brought waves over me of happy memories to speak with them. I miss sharing life with them. I also had fun Skyping with a life long, dear friend, Alice, who is visiting the USA (children and grandchildren) but serves in South Korea. She looks just as beautiful as ever. She is a present from God to me. How blessed I am to have lovely friends all over the US and world.
I did work for a bit on the ongoing Medina painting. It is slow going as different ideas and characters evolve in the painting. I have added a cat because cats wandered everywhere in Morocco. They were even in the gas station cafe! I think they were also around in other restaurants and all over the neighborhood. Most looked pitiful. Mine in the painting looks fairly healthy. I didn't have the heart to have most of his hair missing! And, I don't know why the photos are turning out with such a yellow tone. I guess a daylight photo is in order soon. Stay tuned!
