This is a special post to wish my best friend a happy birthday because she deserves to be celebrated. Elizabeth Hoffman is not only one of my favorite artists, she is one of my favorite people.
Apparently, this interview with Anthony Avina was posted yesterday, but I only just now found out about it. This is probably because I am not a social media regular. Like I don’t log into Twitter or Facebook daily, so I wouldn’t see a feed coming on my screen in front of my face or anything like that. I’d have to get an email from someone. And because I don’t have any notifications set up on any of my social media platforms, that isn’t going to happen automatically, nor do I have social media apps installed on my phone. Yes. You read all of that right.
This is the only picture I have of a cow. It’s a detail from a painting I did long ago.
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. I was thankful for my food. Not everyone gets to eat. Perhaps it’s the one day of the year we take real time out to think about that. Or for many of us, an additional day. Either way, we think about it while stuffing ourselves with potatoes and gravy. Some wealthier people buy only organic foods, some support local farms and businesses, and many eat with a conscience. That’s all good, but people are still starving. It’s so sad that anyone has to when there’s enough wealth in the world to feed the population a few times over.
