Hello, Paula Gaon here, Libra Sun, Cancer Rising, Aquarius Moon. Nice to meet you. I'm one of many aging BabyBoomers scratching my head and wondering where the time went and why I still feel so confused. That planned career never came to fruition, and earning a living is just a necessary chore. A few years ago, after that proverbial mid-life crisis-which I prefer to think of as an extended adolescence, and my mother's advice, decided to get back to artwork-ie clear out the accumulated cobwebs and neurosis and bring to light all that's been gestating the past 30+ years. So here it is. Look forward to sharing a few ideas and images with you! Come over & rap with us:

Many Years From Now is Suddenly Now...

"When I get old and losing my hair many years from now..."
~Paul McCartney

Who can believe it? In less than a week, Paul McCartney celebrates his legendary and long awaited 64th birthday, 18 June 2006. (Now please don't ask which birthday I celebrate this year on 9 October, same birthday as John Lennon.)

It's been rough for Paul these past few years--brings back the heartbreak of Linda's loss--Paul's wife, companion and friend of 30 years. I'd always dreamed of them having a big party and Linda presenting Paul with that "Bottle of Wine", "Birthday Greeting", maybe even a "Valentine". Guess some of our dreams just aren't meant to come to true... In any case, Happy Birthday, Paul, many, many happy returns. Hope you come acoss my virtual "Birthday Greeting", "Bottle of Wine" & "Valentine" out there in CyberSpace, and totally enjoy.

Still Love You,
