“The only valuable thing is intuition.” Einstein
From my journal, our vision, as this journal is writing/painting us into our new life:
“Our dream is to finish the book together within twelve months.
On Sundays after yoga or a walk or lovemaking we will continue the writing process in coffee shops or tea rooms or around our Monterey table in our studio.
We will be supported financially toward our goal . . .
stealing some evenings and an occasional whole weekend at the ocean,
the year will culminate in 4-8 weeks off in December where we have prepped
to drop in and sprint to the creative finish line. This will be a joyous experience!
Final edits will occur before this time next year.
We see each other in good health and excellent shape,
feeling joyful enthusiasm for our lives and our work.
This will be the first of many books together.
This or something better for the good of all concerned.
So be it!”

From my journal: “Isabelle drove down to meet us at Broc’ Cafe. We met her through Dr. Chen, our Chinese doc. Her acupuncture practice is thriving, and she’s taken up watercolors. Her paintings are amazing . . . intuitive talent! She tipped us toward places where the Camino would cross populated areas — or close enough — where we might meet up with travelers. (Saying that word makes me think of Lord of the Rings or Deep Space w/ Star Trek.) BTW, enjoying playing with the pencil from the hotel. . . It is softer that what I brought.”
“The more I travel the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.” Shirlee McLaine

I just love that tall building with the narrow street. Great job on that!!!
Thanks Joan, it is one I like too!
I know it’s the same message, but every now and then I just need to say that your journals are beautiful. I hope you have a great week Kate.
Thank you. I never tire of that message! You have a good week too!
Catching up on your lovely travels and not surprised to see you’ve turned this into great plans for the year😉. I never tire of admiring your ability to show the dimension of scenes in your illustrations. Your years of study and practice are paying off in more ways than you might appreciate!
And a bit of Irish luck!

Yes. Give me a month of kidneystone catchup!
