This is a collage painting I did of old women, since I'm into old women in a highly personal way. I experience aging with serenity one day and rage the next. I can't stand most articles written in the newspaper about aging, most recently the one in the NY Times: "What if Age is Nothing but a Mindset?" by Bruce Grierson (age 57).
Delusion is also a mindset.
It is the night before Halloween and I'm eating miniature Almond Joys. I bought one small bag, because Tom and I will be at the movies tomorrow night. We live in one of those neighborhoods where outsiders bring their children because 1) the most fantastically decorated house in the city is on our block, and 2) it's safe and looks like Disneyland. The only nod I give Halloween now is a skeleton on the door. Last year, I had a half dozen pumpkins, but I didn't get around to those this year. I do have a couple of pots of dead plants out in front, but I think that may be more neglect than holiday spirit.
