Of course I do not know what many (if not most) of these items refer to -- but I can tell that yours is a life well lived...and that is what it is all about in the end. Congratulations Lorraine on your many accomplishments in 2011. Wishing you even more in 2012. It was so great meeting you in "real life" this past year and I am hoping there will be a repeat next year. All the best!!

Seth,it was terrific to meet you. I am looking forward to Art is 2012, seeing you and all the other creative folks I have had the opportunity to become friends with. This post is really a list of moments-sparks of memory as they ignite in my head. people, places, things, events, something speak only to me, some to individuals, some to the cyber world as a whole. mostly it is recognition @ deep appreciation of what has been and and opening of my heart and mind to what will be.
