Leonardo’s Last Supper…The Master himself

Sunday, October 28th, 2007

Anyone who is an artist…even those who are not …..will most certainly appreciate the link I have provided below…

Through the wonders of the internet..we can now view¬†Leonardo Da Vinci’s… The Last¬†Supper¬†at 16 billion pixels…1,600 times stronger than images taken with¬† a 10 pixel camera…Because of this you can zoom in to see every detail and survey the 500 year old cracks¬†on¬†its surface from ageing…¬†Once you go to this page ..be sure to click on the painting itself…¬†¬†use the arrow keys and the zoom lens…then simply observe… with wonderment …

I spent quite some time today studying this magnificent piece of art…it is one of the most beautiful paintings I have ever seen in my entire life…

I hope you are able to enjoy this¬†as much as I have…

For All In California

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

It seems many of us …including myself…… are concerned about our lovely ¬†friend Kathryn Bechen…¬†¬† http://www.kathrynbechenink.blogspot.com/¬†….she has been communicating as best she can¬†through¬†emails and posting on her blog if possible…she is in California where the horrific fires are rageing…below is an excerpt from one of several emails that have passed between Kathryn and myself…

¬† Dear Jo, ¬† Thank you so much.¬† It is a devastating situation for all.¬†¬† The¬†tv doesn’t begin to show¬†what has happened–532,000 evacuated.¬† Worse than 9/11. ¬†We are safe and taking it one hour at¬†a time.¬† We have faith God will see us through, no matter what happens.¬† Blessings, Kathryn

Friendship

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Friends love you no matter who you are or what you are…they let you be you…they are loyal… kind… giving…. caring…they don’t judge…they are always there for you when you need them to be…they let you be a fool when you want to be one…they pick you up when you are down…they always know when you need to be left alone…they know you

I have the kind you count on one hand…

There is of course…my family

and my little PJ …pj005_edited-11.jpg¬†

Both unconditional love….

There is my best friend….¬†¬†¬†¬†friends13.gif……FAYE…

From Louisville, Kentucky…

She has been there for me forever…and¬† judged me never…since the day¬†I met her…she came into¬†Dillons… a steakhouse…where I worked … we fast became friends ….it was¬†her birthday…the 17th of October…many moons ago

Faye and I have had a bond that has grown stronger through time even though I moved away some¬†time ago…I have such wonderful memories of all the fabulous¬†people I met at that restaurant… the peanuts on the floor…. going dancing until the wee hours after work…what fun we all had….they closed down just this year after many seasons…those times will linger¬†…. in my mind… always

There is Dixie…who I had known in¬†high school¬†and no you don’t get to find out how long ago it was since I graduated¬†… Even though we lost touch for a while…. we have rekindled our friendship since we “found” each other again

Then there are the friends who surprise you when you least expect it…

Like Jen….of….¬† http://www.pearstreetstudios.com/…….¬†I went to my mail box today¬†… inside¬†I found a¬†package with a beautiful¬†gift¬†that she sent along with¬†a¬†very lovely note…..Even though we have never met….Jen… has “listened ” when I really needed an ear and is just a very sweet ….loving …..person¬†

Sometimes things get in the way of friendships…following the¬†road back¬†…is the important thing

I must not forget my blogging friends…they are too many to name here…these are people that often times we¬†have only met through the internet¬†…they however touch our hearts in ways we can’t explain…like all the lovelies that have placed a post on here ….nice

If you haven’t talked to a friend in a while… pick up the phone and give them a call.. drop them a note…or an email….let them know you are simply….. thinking…. of them

Love to All  JO

CIAO!!!

PJ made me do it

Monday, October 15th, 2007

I have been known to push myself way too much…especially with the holidays right around the corner… I want to have everything made and NOW! so… I don’t sleep and I keep on trying to make the best possible product I can and get it posted¬†to¬†my web¬†site….then I took a look at PJ yesterday…she reminded me that all work and no play can make me a pretty dull person ….and the rest they say is history…
