Good Morning from a wonderful Lake Worth. I have been back here for just over a week and already feel right at home. It does not take long to get into life here as there is always so much going on, so many opportunities, something for everyone! The first task always is the garden, there are always weeds and our bushes go wild in this sunshine, this job does not take long and within a couple of days everything is back to normal and looking good. The plants here are marvellous and what would be considered house plants at home, grow well in the gardens here, amazing!!! Lake Worth Beach
The welcome back is always so good, lots of phone calls, invites here and there, hugs in the street and lots of news to catch up on. The Casino at Lake Worth Beach looks wonderful and the beach area with the seats and gardens look very attractive. I love the idea of being able to rent sun loungers and umbrellas , pure bliss! Mulligans was busy, always a good sign and the beaches continue to be well attended.the other that I notice that for the most part the area at the beach is kept very clean as are the roads around lake Worth, I love that!
I have been to Art Spirit to see my friends, the shuffleboard building is ideal and accommodates us very well. There are a lot of new artists around who are producing interesting work, always a joy to see, so many ideas, so many new ideas……and, I got to see one of the artists lofts, they are fabulous, fitted with every amenity possible, large and airy, beautifully designed to creat space and clean lines achieved by hiding everything in cupboards, truly gorgeous and, every one is sold!!
Still on the subject of artists, I attended a show at FAU in Boca, where a famous book artist and sculptor showed her beautiful works of paper sculptures and amazing shapes. By intricately folding the paper she creates books that unfold like slinkys and cascade down for some time, boxes beautiful decorated boxes open up and yield others boxes, shapes that turn into other shapes, all beautifully unfolded and moved to beautiful music, an experience indeed. Her work will be on show at The Jaffe Book Centre at FAU. If you have never visited there, it is certainly worth a trip, Mr Jaffe who set up the centre and donated all the books is amazing and I was so overawed to meet him at this event, a truly lovey man, passionate about books and very intent upon saving his beautiful collection for all to be able to see and experience.
A visit to South Shore to meet the artists exhibiting there was attended by many people, a great evening, what a good idea to have working there as people come and go to drink and eat, I really like this place.tonight when I went along AnnaMaria was working hard painting away producing awesome work. We had an evening with some interesting famous people, it was such fun, who would you invite to dinner if you had the opportunity??
On Wednesday we start volunteering at the Blue Planet Writing Rooms in Northwood, something I love because there is always something new going on, lots of nice people to work with, so much fun.There is a lot on this week, Art Spirit, a trip to Miami, visitors to stray, friends to meet, films to see…………....that is why I love. Lake Worth!
