Bridges and Connections…
San Francisco is my town. I was born at Kaiser Hospital on Geary Blvd, 51 years ago! I love sailing on the Bay, the cable cars, Christmas at Union Square and biking at the Presidio right under the Golden Gate Bridge. That beautiful Golden Gate.

At the same time, the City of Menlo Park is having its annual art marketplace so there will be lots of art to see and things to do. Come have a cool glass of lemonade and mingle with me and my fellow artists at the reception.
Speaking of art, I just finished a new piece today entitled “Orange Tulips” with Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths”.
