Coronations and other milestones

( Passport photo. I’m on the right with open mouth.)

My family lived in England from 1952 to 1955.

In 1953,, my parents attended Queen Elizabeth’s coronation.

We still have a lot of the souvenirs, most of which are with

my niece in Colorado. Among the collection is a replica of the

golden carriage. It’s really lovely.

I was only 5 years old at the time and had a British accent!

Alas that lovely accent is long gone…

On June 12th, I’ll be traveling to Japan.

Finally, after all these years, I’ll see Japanese carp

in Kyoto. Six glorious days there ๐Ÿ™‚

      I can only imagine how amazing it was to have been there during cherry blossom season.
      Lucky you – a magical time indeed ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Dale. I love that passport photo, and I still have my mouth open most of the time ๐Ÿ™‚
      I expect Japan and its koi will provide enough inspiration to last a long, long time. Perfect timing for my upcoming Fall solo show.
