Silent Night

“There is a primal reassurance in being touched, in knowing that someone else, someone close to you, wants to be touching you. There is a bone-deep security that goes with the brush of a human hand, a silent, reflex-level affirmation that someone is near, that someone cares.”

Her name is Niki. I once had a friend named Niki. Pop Art moving to a new home...by Laurie Pace

Ten days ago I had a phone call on my cell phone with the caller ID 'Niki Hardin Home'.  I dropped the phone and immediately and Terry looked at me with questioning eyes.  You see my friend Niki died two years ago.  She had Lou Gehrig's.  I truly hesitated to pick up the phone.

Aunt Mary at Cousin Anne's Wedding . Open a Different Door . Laurie Pace . Times They are a Changin.

TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN...I was digging through old files from 2005-2006 and this was one that really made me smile. I did maybe six or eight pop pieces of art that year.  A hair dresser fell in love with this piece and as far as I know it is still happily living in the midst of hairspray and laughing clients in upper state New York.

"Times they are a Changin." A blast from the past, but oh so current. After all these years (Terry and I met when I was 11... that was 50 years ago), Terry knows I do not have a big funny bone in my body...but I do love to take songs and redo lyrics. Singing is like breathing to me. There is constant song in my head and give me a word and suddenly I will be singing.  So part of this Joyful Year is to bring back my music to my life with my singing, my guitar and my piano.
