In My Opinion…

Happy April to you!  Spring may or may not arrive any day now.  As I'm writing this, the weather is sunny and warm, but who knows?  It IS the Midwest, after all, and anything can happen weather wise. I love music and I love to dance, so to combine those two loves into an aerobic exercise program, I began going to Jazzercise several times a

In My Opinion… March, 2019

I was SO looking forward to meeting Valerie Allen on St. Patrick’s Day at the Lawrence Library.  I even had my GREEN all ready to wear.  Unfortunately, life had other things for me to do on Sunday, so I missed the meeting.  On the WSI Facebook page, I asked for comments about the presentation so I could read about it, and I’ll include some of

In My Opinion…. Pat Grabill… February 19, 2019

February?  Already?  It's been a long, cold winter so far, with more to come, but at least in February we can celebrate Valentine's Day and share the love and eat guilt-free chocolates, because they were a gift from a sweetie, right?  All of this led me to wonder about the man after whom the day is named.  There have been several saints named Valentine, evidently,

In My Opinion——- January 7, 2019 … Pat Grabill

Happy New Year, WSI members and water media artists.  Each new year always makes me uncomfortable because it forces me to evaluate myself and what I did/did not do or did not do well in the previous year and make some decisions about what to do better in the coming year.  I don't call these "resolutions."  I call them "think abouts."  My dad used to

In My Opinion – December 17, 2018

Greetings, WSI members and friends.  Let me begin by wishing you the happiest of holidays.  I celebrate Christmas, but whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukah or Kwanza, or you follow another faith path and just celebrate with the rest of us at this time of year, I wish you the very best joys of the season and a new year full of good surprises.

In My Opinion – November 14, 2018

I'm glad it's November for more than one reason.  First of all, November brings us one month closer to spring.  I am not a fan of winter.  It's pretty and everything--especially if you like leaving the white of the paper in a painting--but it's cold.  I don't like the cold.  An additional reason I'm glad it's November is that Halloween is over.  I REALLY don't
