The B’Day

Bayswater Beach, originally uploaded by leyaevelyn.

Birthdays are such interesting events. It seems there is often a duplicity happening: you want the attention, you call it a special day, or if you don’t, others do but then, on the other hand, getting all that attention for just being alive another day seems a bit odd, maybe even embarrassing.

Then there is that amazing creation called Facebook. Where all the people I rarely see wish me happy birthday. It seems the perfect use for FB. I don’t hang out there much. I prefer old-fashioned email. But it has its uses. Announcements, finding people, links, and especially, the Birthday.

Yesterday, the Real Day, was fun: Aaron & Joanne joined me for a game of miniature golf. The course, indoors, is like an underwater, psychedelic event, winding through an underworld of fantasy. Joanne won, great hand-eye coordination even with the many distractions of screaming children and odd decor. Then we went for dinner and my friend Val joined us.

So here’s to another year!

About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
