MY LIFE IN 6 WORDS: I wear a smile…good life!

Hi Dear Ones, It’s almost the weekend , RELAX time…not that my life is particularly hectic. But, I’ve started working out again and am thrilled to be slowly creeping out of my bubble. Hard to imagine it’s August already and summer fun here in New York is just beginning. Mask wearing and hand washing is still a must for those of us who are responsible members of our communities…no big deal and the right thing to do. It’s still hard to think that Michael and I are considered ELDERLY, but it’s a fact…and we need to be extra careful! Creating art, listening to music and reading good books help to ease concerns.

For example, I participated in two fun art challenges for this week: TAKE A WORD ( set their theme to be TRAVEL. With an aching heart at not being permitted to visit my dear friends (families) in Ethiopia, I created this piece…

and for DIGITAL WHISPER (,) the theme is TEARS…appropriate for my feelings of missing dear ones both far and near. We haven’t seen our daughter and grandkids since January (except on FaceTime.) Here’s my TEARS…

Stay safe, dear ones. Hope to see you for my next posting.

Big Hugs, abbyj

I'm a wife, a Mom and a Doodleloo (the name my grandchildren call me.) I'm retired, but have always been a communicator, art and music lover, an adventure traveler, reader and lately, a digital artist. I was a TV producer of documentaries and features for 25 years. Married to my best friend, we just celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. I had a blog on another platform for 10 years...want to be more mobile so switched to WordPress. Hope you'll join me in my magazine formatted blog. See you soon...
