You tell what you are by the friends you seek,
By the very manner in which you speak,
By the way you employ your leisure time,
By the use you make of dollar and dime.
You tell what you are by the things you wear,
By the spirit in which you burdens bear,
By the kind of things at which you laugh,
By the records you play on the phonograph.
You tell what you are by the way you walk,
By the things of which you delight to talk,
By the manner in which you bear defeat,
By so simple a thing as how you eat.
By the books you choose from the well-filled shelf;
In these ways, and more, you tell on yourself.

Catching Up

Wow a lot has happen since I've been back in here ..*smile*.. I sorta got side track. Over at ATCsforALL we were voting for what we thought would be the next year place for the AFA Gathering that they held each year. Portland, Oregon was in the lead, then New York and Texas. So us West Coast ATC Artist just knew that we were going to have a AFA Gathering and were we excited! ..giggle.. Well to our great disappointment we discovered instead of being first we were last due to not having enough experience if I understood that right. Anyway it was mention to me that they would love to see more Regional Gatherings. At first I back off thinking I can't do this I'm a Country Girl but the more I thought about it the more I wonder so I open a forum asking all California members if they would be interested. To my amazement they are! Yes, you guess it that is where I have been organizing spending a lot of time on the computer helping CentralCaliGrrrl who has graciously volunteer to help. Poor thing, I don't think she realize what she was getting into I know I didn't, but, are we having fun. We are planning to hold this event
in Monterey, California that is where the majority voted for on April 30th & May 1st 2010 we will be checking in Friday holding an all day event on Saturday. As soon as we figure out which Hotel we will be staying at I'll be posting the details. Well my friends thank you for being so patient with me I promise to post some art real soon!....
