I just wanted to extend a warm thank-you to everyone who stopped by my ironing board at the Temescal Art Hop last Friday night. (I got word from my husband that the lead actor from “Entourage” was there, but I never saw him.) I had gone into the event thinking I’d be happy to sell even one copy, and I was not disappointed, thanks to the generosity of my friends and neighbors. Below is a picture of me and my friend Natasha Ravnik, who I met in a local writing class a few years ago. I feel very lucky to be living in such an artistic neighborhood.
