Sun, Sun, Sun, Sunshiney Day

June 29th, 2007

Ah, the temps went down and it was just beautiful outside today. I took a nice walk to a local diner to have some lunch felt much more a part of the world than I have all week. Some random dudes honked at me on my walk and waved like they knew me. The local gas station attendant even came out to flirt. Nice weather seems to bring that out in people. I just smile and keep on going.

Back at home, the sun had my mind racing. Lots of stuff in the works. I'm working on an piece of art for a benefit auction, "Angels for Brianna", to raise money to help with a family's medical costs after their daughter passed away far too young. I read about Brianna and her story here after a reading about her family's loss on Ullabenulla's site. Her story reminds me a bit of my step-brother who died very suddenly at the age of 22 from a brain aneurysm. It was 8 years ago and it's still so tragic. It's so hard to understand when someone you love dies so young. But it seems that already, Brianna has touched many hearts in her passing and that's a beautiful thing. Plus, she's now inspired many artists to create a beautiful piece of art in her name. And that too is a beautiful thing. The auction will be set up in a couple weeks and I'll let you know when it's up.

In the meantime, I've put up a couple posts at the Blue Tree blog, so go check it out!
