Isn't Life Strange

Years of not seeing so many friends of 30 years,, at 74,, it takes a lot out of you,, sitting in the only coffee shop,, that feels like anything,, that your life is about,, minus the New York /Key West/Paris,, Vibe,, lack of communication,, maybe it's just all about the fact of being,, Old,, did about 35 drawings this year,, maybe its 40,, which is a good thing,,, but not having a buying crowd,, makes it not a really exciting thing,, also have had a few books published,, now have 3, I wrote and nine books of my drawings,, and i need to continue this later' have a bit of company all of a sudden,, and now its Jan.4th, 2018,, had a wonderful trip to Mexico,, to an amazing wedding,, for a friend who is one of the main reasons i was able to survive in Key West for the many years i did,, So i'm turning 75 this year and going to celebrate in Paris France, God Willing, April 15th till middle or end of May,, one of the or i should say 2 of the most wonderful experiences of my life have been the birth of my two Great Grandchildren,, and now expecting the 3rd in March of this year,, not that i don't realize that everything else iv'e had means any less,, just that i'm blessed to have another blessing , just want to express , the love of My Family , brothers and sister,, My children and grandchildren and great grandchildren,, the many cousins 1st 2nd and 3rd,, and the extended Families ,, the oh so many iv'e had,, the Friends who have so shared so much love and loved so deeply, i just have to write this down just so they all know,, i could not have done any of it without You,,,

Where did that Year Go

2017, March 21st, where to start,, turned 73 and now waiting for 74,, six weeks away,, but feels like i,ve just gone through a five year period,, 3 months in Italia,, and Two months in Paris France,  and before and after that trip,, 30 oil paintings in Villa Mesa,, at the home of my Father,, and then 35 drawings in Paris,, started the trip with my Grandson Tyler Grech,, who was with me for a month,, which included a couple days in Paris as well as Rome,, i would like to do a moment by moment account of this year but it would fill a few books,, at least one for Paris One for Italia and 2 for the tie spent with My Family,, not to mention the coming of age and the acceptance of life as a person considered to be of old age ,, or elderly,, because out of this time and trip,, the development of  myself ,,, as a Great Grandfather,, and simply to just still being alive is more than i can express of what has come out of the past Year,, and I give Thanks and Praise to The Father , The Son and The Holy Spirit,, Thank You Thank You Thank Yoe
