80301

Couldn't have had a better day than Saturday! Judith Trager, who lives in Boulder, kindly took me in hand for the day and it was, for me, pure happiness to see my beloved Flatirons. It was a morning of visual pleasure: first, Judith's work and then we stopped tp see Carol Watkins, so I got to visit with her art, too. Double treat. Judith and I then went to Pearl St, had lunch at her favorite Asian restaurant, stopped at Chico's (where once again, did not find anything) and then went to a preview of the exhibit that takes place in conjunction with Boulder's Open Studios. Alas, I will be gone before the event, which is in October. But if you live within driving distance, you should make it a point to go. On the way back to Judith's, we stopped at 3250 O'Neal Circle so I could take pictures of where I lived in a furnished apartment with two toddlers and their father in 1970-71. The place still looks the same, except that end of 30th St. was unpaved back then, there were prarie dogs living in the complex, and there was no fence around the swimming pool. Judith said she wished she had gotten a picture of the expression on my face when I was walking around taking pictures.

Good grief, I am SUCH a sap when it comes to memory and the past.

It's always disconcerting to me to go back to where I used to live in Michigan. So sad to see the street that used to be lined with great old oak trees, paved & denuded, not an oak in sight. Now my dad tells me they chopped down the 2 big pines from the front of my old house. I don't even want to see it. I'd rather keep my memories unchanged.

I'm sorry, but can't find any other place to tell you, but it's almost impossible for me (others) to read this entry as well as many below on this page. Is there anyway you can be persuaded to enlarge your font on these entries? Love your work! Thanks! Nan
