First day of lent I was sitting in the presents of an "enlightened being" who came into to the studio to look at my work. We had a fantastic rapport with one another and I am so delighted that at the end of the meeting, she actually agreed for me to take her portrait. We will spent a day together in Marin early next month. She is a famous author from Germany and I am excited to start reading her books next.
After she left I was able to clean my refrigerator with joy and calm while a pear-tart with marzipan and cardamom was baking in the oven for my family. So much for the first day of lent.
