Punch list item. With the client’s ok, and per my concept drawing, I’m adding a couple of strategic streaks of AAA, though participant recollections differ as to the exact return fire or lack thereof during the initial Akagi dive. I have three on my large concept drawing, but the third looked a bit out of place, so I picked the two best.
I have a long straightedge that I use for straight lines such as this. I had to lay the piece flat and use my easel mahl stick as a bridge to avoid smears from the still-drying main parts of the aircraft. Now, back to those 🤬 dive flaps!
Day after tomorrow my work will be on display at The Tea Room here in Petaluma, CA. I’d love it if my local people would stop in, have a coffee and check it out. They will all be available for purchase and they will be on display for the entire month of March! If you get a chance to stop in, send me a note and let me know what you think. The Tea Room is my favorite place in Petaluma for breakfast and lunch and brunch. 316 Western Ave. @tearoomcafe

⭐️New Blog Post⭐️ (link in profile) This one is a story from my childhood about the time I was sent to the principal’s office for lying, when in fact I was telling the truth, and then I lied to keep from getting into worse trouble. 😂 Hence the title, “A Lesson in Lying.” And I’ve pretty much spoiled it for you— telling you exactly what it’s about, but it’s still a fun story to read. ✨
This painting has little to do with the blog and is called, “Go Around”. It hangs in my library at home.
🔮Our words create our worlds🔮⠀
📕As a lifelong student of language - English and others - I find the language that we use with ourselves completely fascinating, both out loud, and also in our heads.⠀
💕A lot of the things we might consider berating ourselves with, we wouldn’t DREAM of saying to a friend.⠀
✨My journey in learning how to harness the power of our internal words started on our hypnobirthing course with @theyesmummum, before we had Samuel nearly five years ago. ⠀
💫Hollie gave us scripts, tools and exercises to gently turn any negative messages of pain and fear into empowering, encouraging words and phrases. ⠀
👶🏻👶🏼But the real proof was in the pudding, when all these scripts played an enormous and important role in both (very different) births of my boys. ⠀
🌀Since then, I’ve enjoyed building more and more use of daily affirmations, incantations and ‘power thinking’ (not the same as positive thinking, a topic for another day). They have been life-altering. ⠀
🌈Of COURSE I still regularly hear that little niggly voice that might creep in whispering nasty things, but now I’m better trained to catch them before they start to spiral, acknowledging them, and filling the vacuum instead with more encouraging words for myself. ⠀
👇🏻Where have you most benefitted from the power of your words⠀

“Let yourself roam free-
Uninhibited by thoughts that seduce you into captivity.
Boundless, limitless is your True Nature-
Walk here, Rest here, only discovery awaits.”

Voicu Rădescu & Victor Bitiușcă “Aproape de aproape în rădăcina asta
ceva se străduie să redevină
iar noi rămâne să ne întrebăm dacă să trecem cu vederea blândețea lui nimicitoare
urmează o rostogolire și poate o zguduită claritate
care falsifică și uită
atunci cu greu mai recunoaștem grația electrică a vechilor bărbați
pe care îi văzusem mai demult cum își cărau cămășile coclite
prin mlaștina care îi dogorea
și se plantau cu brațele în cruce cu un condor pe fiecare umăr
bărbații care vroiau să moară și își zdrobeau și oasele ca mama mamei lor
și ies în ploaie să-mi dezleg frânghia de care sunt legat”

Sometimes What You Really Need Is Chicken And Waffles - I Owe My Love Of This Epic Combination To My Wonderful Friend The Marvelous Playwright And Actor Randy Noojin Who Called Me Up One Day When I Was Living In My Old Apartment In Soho And Asked If I Could Be Ready In An Hour For A Road Trip To His Friend Ben’s Family’s Hunting And Fishing Cabin In The Woods Of Pennsylvania. I’d Go Just About Anywhere With Randy, And After A Late Night Arrival And Walk Through A Waterfall In The Pitch Dark Of An Old Growth Forest, When We Woke Up The Next Morning His Friend Ben Took Us To The Local Place For Chicken And Waffles. I’d Never Heard Of It Before - This Was Years Before It Became Trendy - And I Thought Ben Was Making It Up. I Don’t Think The Place Served Anything Else And It Was Packed With Big Burly Hunters And Their Gear Stocking Up On A Hearty Breakfast Before A Day In The Woods. It Was Probably One Of The Best Meals I’ve Ever Had, And Ever Since, Whenever I See It On A Menu Or On A Sign In A Restaurant Window, I Remember That Trip. Thank You Wonderful @randynoojin For So Many Wonderful Memories - At The Chelsea Bell 316 8th Avenue, New York City
