Ta Da!

Hot off the presses (or, the March 2018 issue of Renaissance Magazine), my Renaissance Renovations cartoon…

My Favorite Things – Decluttering!

There’s something about the arrival of spring that always gets me into this mode…

(In case, you’re wondering, I’m the one spending time with the sponge and spray cleaner – not the one goofing off playing broom guitar!) 

I’m also the one making multiple trips with donations to our local thrift store.

Because at the end of the day…

Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul.

(Democritus)

Applause, Applause…

For my second published cartoon!!!

I submitted a cartoon to a specialty magazine (the dress above is a hint) about 10 months ago and heard nothing…’til today.  (And here I was assuming that no-answer meant my cartoon had landed in this magazine’s “circular file.”)  Beyond knowing that the check’s in the mail, I don’t know the publication date yet.  But when I do find out, I’ll let y’all know so that you can run out to your local Barnes and Noble and buy all the back issues.

Now pardon me while I dance a galliard around the living room…

My Favorite Things – After the Storm

(I’m using the term both literally and figuratively.)

Here’s what it looked like around here yesterday…

And, today, after the storm passed.

Much like the storm, my illness of the past few months now seems nicely behind me.  While small clouds of anxiety still blow over my mood now and then, I’ve learned that there is always a blue sky above those clouds and that I can survive the moods just like I can survive the weather.

For that I am surpremely grateful. 

How about you?  What are you grateful for today?

From My Sketchbook – Rhymes and Doodles

I tired of sketching those chained to their phones

As I traveled the subways through myriad zones.

So I dreamed up this stooped-over, cute little guy

But, as you can see, he is just a bit shy.

My Favorite Things – Working From Home

(Which I actually haven’t had much of a chance to do since my husband and I were traveling, and now I’m traipsing back and forth to New Jersey for concerts with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.)  BUT, I did have some time this afternoon to put the finishing touches on my newest cartoon.  To see the cartoon bigger or to purchase it as a greeting card, please click here.
