Rainbow Bean Soup Mix

A neighbour stopped by and brought a thoughtful homemade Christmas present today, "soup in a jar".

At the half-time show George Lopez was the guest conductor and got the huge ovation from the crowd.

It has been a while......

While I enjoy blogging, I have been busy with other projects, soon I will be launching new web-site for my photo business. Group show at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology will be ending next week. My solo show is in the works for March to May. I am off to Southern California for a weekend and when I get back, I hope to get back to blogging, and share my passions with you.
