Judy Judy Judy

Had a wonderful and fun filled morning recently with Judy Wise.

You can read about it here.

I finally got to show her around some of Sydney.
It wasn't nearly long enough, of course.
But at least the weather held out for us.

We have had some pretty foggy mornings here lately...

Thank you Judy, for taking the time to stop in Sydney, for being the wonderful and inspirational person and artist that you are. I loved our day together too.
Hope to see you back again here soon.

Inspired by...

Dan Eldon

Years ago I read about Dan Eldon and his short lived but remarkable life.

I purchased books about his journals that his mother lovingly reproduced in order to inspire others about his life and the stories he was telling.

He was an artist and English photo journalist, adventurer and activist. The incredibly talented Dan left a legacy and a powerful humanitarian spirit that can be seen in the many art journals he made.

Eldon, who kept these journals from the time he was a teenager, was killed in Mogadishu, Somalia, in the summer of 1993. 

He was twenty-three years old.

You can view his journals here

Wishing you all a happy new year.
