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:

Dance Tonight And Keep On Dancing...

Well, here it is again, another Paul McCartney Birthday Post. This year, I thought for sure I'd give it up--really how much can you write about someone's birthday. But, in true McCartney fashion, make that Sir Paul McCartney, there's continuing renewal. Last year, that long-awaited 64th birthday arrived on a sad note with Paul & Heather's estrangement and pending divorce. But thank goodness, this year seems to be another story as the couple are to have a birthday date.

Happy Birthday, Paul
Keep On Doing What You Do Best,
Many, Many, Happy Returns,
And Of course, A Happy Reunion!

It Is The Third Of June...

Today's the Third of June, sleepy, dusty, I'm not in the Delta, how about you? Forty years ago today, singer Bobbie Gentry's fabled and famous Billy Joe McAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge. Did anyone ever discover what they were throwing off the Tallahatchie Bridge?

The First of June marked the 40th anniversary of The Beatles' release of the Sgt. Peppers Album--the beginning of the Summer of Love.

What memories, hey? Wonder if GenX'ers will have these kinds of memories in 2047?

Onward & Upward,
