Patricia Zemanek and a memory and a rak

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Patricia Zemanek stopped by to see Barbie Redux today, what fun, Patricia owns and operates Eclectix gallery over in El Cerrito, she puts on great shows all year, I DON”T know how she does it! (Plus she is raising two children, woot!)She has a great eye for all things low brow, new brow, and pop surreal check out her gallery here:


I had a rough and tumble sleepless night (again), woke up and stayed tired and cranky all day, trying to shake it off, not even the fresh salty ocean breeze stirred my senses much but I did recall a time in my life when I use to drive from San Jose to Santa Cruz periodically to lay out and sunbathe at the beach, read, listen to music and walk the boardwalk. I would often treat myself to a caramel apple, the boardwalk was full of tasty treats but the apples were my fav and in those days I didn’t have a weight problem. Now, the sun is my enemy and I do not lay out at all, but I do love to drive with the hood down on my vehicle if its an overcast day as it was this morning. Speaking of convertibles. Have you seen the new Z4? be still my heart!!

The new z4

Someone stopped by the gallery and left a cd with photographs taken at the Barbie Redux opening. I wish I knew who they were so I could personally thank them for a “random act of kindness”. This is the kind of thing I am compelled to pay forward. If you who gifted me, are reading here, I thank you sincerely.

Oh well

Feeling bad cuz I havn’t been blogging but I also havn’t been creating either, just too much to do this time of year.

I will finish my Christmas cards today and get out a few more packages, and finish Christmas cookies. One more gift to purchase and then done, over and done, with the Christmas shopping, not a single thing, no matter how much on sale, could get me back into a mall for the next four weeks!

I tell ya, its taking a very concerted effort to not be grouchy when out buying, people bump into me like I’m not there! and Leaving the parking lot of a  very busy grocery store yesterday three people almost hit me!! One person whipped out backwards from their parking space very fast without looking, another person rounded the corner at about forty miles per hour oblivious to me and yakking on the phone as if there were not another soul in the whole parking area, and as I rounded the corner on the block where I live, a person in the cross section didn’t stop to look for oncoming traffic and was going to go straight through for heavens sake, a car accident could ruin anyone’s holiday. Everyone is rushing and on their cell phones while doing it, that lethal combination means its time to slow down, its dangerous out there!!

The Christmas Spirit I saw in the Grocery store yesterday

Except she is missing her cell phone.

Today a RAK PAK goes out in the mail as my way of paying forward the unexpected surprise I recieved from SAMMO, (see last post). I feel  very excited about it!

So, dear readers, TAKE IT EASY!! slow down, be mindful, if not for your sake, for mine,  I mean, others ;D

Peace out———–!
