well as you can see i am back on the paris trail again, i have been surfing the net for images and information on paris and her treasures. as you are aware i love the work of toulouse-lautrec , i hope the spelling is ok . he seemed to paint from knowledge of an area in paris that i believe is the red light district called pigalle, the area where many promiscous artists resided. according to the current info most services and naughty activities can be found there. moulin rouge was a big topic of his work and indeed by looking at a lot of his work the colour and images he used reflected what i assume a rather seedy, dark side of paris it must have been. i am no expert but i am facinated by his work and am earnest in learning more. i have views to complete a canvas this year and i would like to express what i find.
well it's new years eve and traditionally for the scots we paaarty tonight. i am not sure what we will do.,i would like to get dressed up and go out for tea and then come home for a few drinks. i have a new bottle of baileys and might make a mess of that perhaps. i have many plans for this year to come and now we have our own place to settle and work on it certainly is a more comforting way to start . tom goes to high school and what a big adventure that will be, he has so much to learn and embrace. i hope it is a fruitful adventure. a few of my friends are starting the year with challenges and i hope the flick over from 2009-2010 will be less stressful and happier time s ahead. reflection is a marvelous tool to realign thoughts and actions . i wish you all a time of reflection and change.
i wish for a year where i am not afraid to meet my challenges, take some risks and live a bit more. i hope it is a happy year with great memories and a body and mind which is healthier and more balanced.
don't be afraid to show love, affection, and caring. kiss someone delicious today and hold someones hand for comfort, love and reassurance.
have a great night tonight and a fantastic year to my friends all over this great land. i love you xx
