Hallelujah for sumptuous DREAM FRUITS in our LIVES! 2012 was an awesome year for ticking items (picking DREAM FRUITS) off of my dream list! However, today, I want to write about just one event in which three wonderful ones culminated!
My Chiboogamoo and I traveled to California to visit our longtime friends the Voegelis at the Hastings Reserve in Carmel Valley, which then enabled me to have these three unexpected experiences:
- Visit a former Decatur, Georgia, neighbor in Carpinteria and see her bookstore, Curious Cup
- Get reacquainted with a close college friend I hadn't seen in 30 years, and
- Give an impromptu art exhibit in California!

|HANGING THE "COSMOS OF HALLELUJAH." I hung a strand of Christmas lights to represent the stars of my mental universe at the storefront of Curious Cup and then clipped on the images of my cosmos from my daily drawing project.(photo by Chiboogamoo)|
|COLLEGE FRIENDS REUNITED! My friend from the Pepperdine University days, Lisa Graye came to the opening with her husband. They live in Santa Barabara. We hadn't seen each other in 30 years! What a dream realized to see her!(photo by Chiboogamoo)|

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: How amazing are neighbors! Deep appreciation goes to Kiona Gross, my former Decatur, Georgia, neighbor for her generosity as a friend, as well as for her creativity as a small business owner and the way she connects people!
Then there is my Chiboogamoo, my amazing husband, who supports my creative journey in innumerable ways.
