In a coffee shop next to a hospital, one woman with a serious, blank face sat motionless. At the next table, a woman with a wooly scarf was talking very efficiently and articulately on her phone, possibly to a doctor. I couldn't hear exactly what she was saying but I knew she was taking care of things. All things. (I always longed to be that kind of woman)

'She' had gone out on a few sweet dates. She had thought things were getting serious,
but she accidentally (did Hermes interfere?) came across the boyfriend's (troll) blog,
where he was 'bitching' about the dates! A series of nasty text messages followed, which she was reading out loud over Greek coffee. The three girlfriends (chorus) gave her their full attention , only once in a while exclaiming in anger and disbelief, and sometimes enriching the story with tit bits of their own.

Sunny Wednesday- We pass by this small shop quite often. No matter what the weather, the owner is playing backgammon with some person or other. After I finished this little drawing I passed by again, and there was a long canvas with a reclining female nude on the sidewalk . The 'specials' of the day were displayed on the owner's parked car.

My dear friends, please forgive me for having been so neglectful. I have been wanting to return to this space that I do love, but perhaps in a different format, I am in a playful mood (of sorts). I am also rather uncertain of how this will work out (and just uncertain overall), so I decided to begin small, and commit to a daily drawing for thirty days only, keeping something of a visual journal. This is a small drawing, drawn from memory, with a thin Sharpie. Here goes.-
'Saturday evening. Lovely dinner with L. and A. at their house. My friend L. makes the best pies, and
the most wonderful bread. A. told us stories about his childhood in Egypt, and his career as a pilot.'
