Yesterday was "Pioneer Day" here in Utah [a state holiday] met up with some friends at night and watched some great fireworks in Liberty Park, then afterwards we rode our bikes to Denny's... When riding back home after "dinner" I was trying to think of the last time that I ate at Denny's....it was 6 years ago when Hiro [my ex-husband] and I were in Japan! Their version of Denny's is A LOT different than the states...and the time before that...was 3 years back >>> when I was living in Provo..my roommate and I use to go there often for late night breakfasts! ohhhh...Utah. :)

My art show that I had at the end of May in Prospect Park, was 50 paintings of different characters I have come up with in the last year or so... one of them "The Traveling Salesman by Day/Gold-digger by Night" is one that I am starting to elaborate on more right now. Currently in the process of working on a new show that is centered mainly around him and his daily travels, finds, sales, schemes etc. oh, and also he has a lisp..which makes him even more endearing! :)

Riding my bike without my helmet is something you would have NEVER seen me do...in New York City...however, since moving to Salt Lake..there has been a change..riding around is so much freer and faster and smoother..so I stopped wearing my helmet..but then last week when riding my bike home from the movies after a crazy rainstorm..I hit some rocks mixed with wet roads while looking at some cool shops which ended in me almost getting into a horrible crash. Lesson learned. :(
My sister Mari and I went on a bike ride last night up around the Avenues. Gorgeous. The houses are sooo gorgeous, my pictures don't do them justice! Looking forward to going on walks around there once Fall arrives. :)
this last photo reminds me so much of the movie "Benny and June" which was filmed in Spokane Washington [2 hours from where I grew up] the lighting of that movie was an exact match of the lighting last night...sooo pretty..you know how fonts have names...I think lighting should have names too.... :)
