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:

Return To Strawberry Fields With LOVE

To LOVE in BFTs original Strawberry Fields Design-Fab 4 Forever

Here it is, finally!! That long awaited Beatles' Reunion. LOVE , even if it's not really all we aging Boomers need (The bread to see LOVE would be nice!) it's exactly what we need now! Cirque du Soleil's production and virtual Beatle "Reunion" has opened at Las Vegas' Mirage. Overwhelming! When the Fab Four first hit the American shores, the technonogy used to produce LOVE was still science fiction. And, those Gen Xers dancing around the stage weren't even a gleam in their fathers' eyes. It doesn't really matter. I still discover Beatle lyrics again and again and wonder how I loved them so much then and continue to rediscover their depth now. George Harrison must have had a small measure of prophecy when he said that the Beatles would exist without them!

See You Down The Long And Winding Road,
