The Reason We Really Came To Vegas

   

The reason we came to Las Vegas:  to talk to our youngest as we always do on Sundays, but this time, live and in person.  Painting and drawing is farthest from my mind.  Hugs are what I'm after.



Another corner of the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort and Spa. With my kids here, all is well in the world.

    1. It's only for a few hours, but still it's wonderful to touch and converse eye to eye. We don't get enough of this.

    1. The Marriott card is great! The corporation knows how to reward--and bring families together.

  3. My husband travels a fair amount for work and sometimes I go along, but most of our optional trips are trips to family. Enjoy.

    1. Right up till they leave us in about an hour. Our time together was too short. Luckily they are bringing the grandkids to visit in June.

    1. Thanks Jane. Well, not all is well, only one third. Two of my sons were missing. But getting all of them together is impossible. So we go around the US and collect our hugs one by one. You know, making art is a passion, but raising the next generation to be responsible, caring and independent adults was a greater passion that you could never afford to have any blocks on performance. My children, now grown men, are my best sculptures and greatest achievement. Sounds hokey I know, but the truth nonetheless.
