CATHERINE + JASPAR+ SELFIE + 11AUG2014; CATHERINE L. JOHNSON;Selfie taken of and by Jaspar Obi.

It took years of practice – the right look, and then  building devices on his paws.
And, then I photo-bombed it.
Me, his human.

Yesterday, 14 August,

a beautiful and cherished bouquet:

Max and Jess!!

My Marvel nephew and my Princess niece

-his beloved children.

Our ALONE time:

We toured the Cardozo Fine Art

that has an exclusive on the Edward Curtis images

of First American tribes living in the Southwest

http://www.edwardcurtis.com/.

(Cardozo Fine Art is in my building.)

Then a visit to my  wide open studio,

I gifted them original works of their choosing.

And, the selection showed me who they are

– what they respond to intuitively.

Blake picked us up and drove us for a take away luncheon

overlooking the glorious Mississippi River

– clear blue skies, dense deep green foliage on both shores

and

the shimmering waters with a strong visible current rolling to New Orleans.

And, then a wild free run with all of our canines

through the leash free dog park.

I criedcriedcried when they left.

They go back to London on Monday.

They are both soulful + conscious young people,

like their older brother Lake.

THERE is nothing compared to the

PRESENCE of AUTHENTIC LOVE!

All the senses are quickened,

and the electric energy of being in the space and time is palpable.

A call and response occurs, a lullaby, that only the heart knows…quietly,

unfolding

and

wrapping one’s heart in HOME.

for the uncertainty that lies ahead of me with surgery #43…
