Last night I came home, cooked a quick dinner and had to overcome the whole fused glass staple incident by heading upstairs to the loft to an abstract I started at the beginning of the month. It's a continuation of my music abstracts. San Antonio is known for Fiesta in April and when I hear the Flaminco music and the mariachis playing I see the colorful rhythm of Fiesta. Between last night and tonight I'm almost finished adding all the colors. It feels good to let my mind get lost in the painting.
On another note, the book I ordered last week arrived today, " When breath becomes air" by Paul Kalanithi. It's about a medical student on his way to becoming a neurosurgeon when he becomes ill with terminal cancer. When I read an excerpt online, I knew I had to read the book.
Another book on my list to read is a book my youngest son bought me for Christmas "behind the beautiful forevers" by Katherine Boo. The story takes place in Annawadi, which is a makeshift settlement in Mumbai. This book has won quite a few awards and is on the New York best seller list.
I'm looking forward to reading both of them and can't decide which one to read first.
