inspiration collage
Hello darlings, Thank you for all your wonderful comments. I loved reading them.  They’ve cheered me up. (Tina Tarnoff, I can’t believe you’re still reading Revolutionary Road!) I’m here in my dad’s hospital room waiting for him to be wheeled to surgery. I’ve found it so calming looking through the beautiful photos on RedBubble. Here’s a little collage of some of my favorite images. What do you think?

  7. Dearest Tina.

    Excellent news about the surgery. Hope you weren't shaken by earthquake (literally or figuratively).

    I love all the pix–we share similar tastes. But I was playing an OLD Donovan tape last night, so tickled by the marquee.

    Congratulations to Olivia for being featured on redbubble.

    Tina Tarnoff: as a long-suffering friend of late RY, you better be reading & not reading this. :) I'll meet you on TT tomorrow. Tag return forthcoming when feeling better.

  11. I hope the surgery went well…
    Wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart and a speedy recovery for your dad!

  12. these are so beautiful. thanks for sharing! i hope your dad’s recovery goes well. i spent a few days in the icu with my mom last summer after heart surgery. what a stressful and exhausting time! it’s so strange as the tables slowly turn and we start caring for our parents. but so wonderful that you can be with him. i hope you can all get some rest in the coming days.

  13. Such a beautiful post! I love the way you arranged all the photos. Hope you have a lovely week!

  14. I don’t know whether I’m more inspired by your Dad’s progress or a mind that finds grace and beauty in a hospital room. If I’m ever marooned on a desert island, I definitely want you for company.

  15. Gorgeous photos (as always — you have such a wonderful eye), and so glad to hear that your dad’s surgery went well, too!


  16. Oh, such a pretty collage. I hope everything goes well with your dad, and make sure to take care of yourself, too.
