Twin Oaks

So, I forgot to mention that while I was up at Sutton...enjoying myself snowboarding, Dean Baker had mentioned that 2 artists, twins - Ryan and Trevor Oaks, was working on a project at the top of lifts of the mountain.

On the bus ride back home, I got the opportunity to see the drawing...a lovely scene looking down the mountain from where they were stationed. Well...that was a lovely piece, but didn't prepare me for what I was going to see when I checked out their website.

WOW...these are some talented guys.

Great job! I can't wait to see more of your work.

Fabulous to get away...

I just came back from 2 vacations that is! First I was off to a Bellydance cruise, organized by Hip Expressions (thanks guys for a great time!!!), that left Tampa and went to the Grand Cayman Islands and Cozumel, Mexico! I had never been to either of those islands and it was outstanding. First, the people I was with were fantastic, some old friends and I made some new ones! I took bellydance and several drum classes and got to use what I learned in our sing-a-longs and hallway gihad jams!!! Thanks Carmine for the emergency hafla jam will come in handy!

I think the highlight for me was when I was swimming with dolphins in Mexico! I was a little apprehensive at first, the things are nearly 500lbs and more, but it turned out to be really fun!!!

Then I came back to 60 degree weather in NY! It was only slightly cooler than where I had just left! To the later get on a bus to Mont Sutton! It was a bit of a shock, but I had an 8+ hr bus ride to get acclimated. It was an awesome 4 days snowboarding up there. This is my 7th trip on the Cooper Union Alumni Ski Trip (and no I didn't go to Cooper). Going there is like going home! I've only been back one day and I miss it already! back to the grind!

I am so ready...

I am 10 days away from being on vacation...I can't wait! And...God willing...the weather will be outstanding and I can briefly forget about snow, ice, sleet and freezing rain!!!

It can't come quickly enough for me!

Be safe if you're out and about today.
