As with all great notions it started with a daydream; move to Alaska and settle down in a cozy cabin, next to a lake, with my beloved other, my dogs and family. Paint and make ART to my hearts content. It's been a long road, today I am fortunate to have realized that dream. My blog is mostly about ART and sometimes everything else.

The myth of Pandora sounds alot like Eve.
Poor little Pandora the first mortal woman on earth was bestowed with beauty from Aphrodite, Hermes gave her cleverness, Athena taught her how to spin, Apollo taught her how to sing. But Zues also made her mischievous and idle. The Gods gave Pandora a exquisite box as a gift before she came to Earth and she was told never to open this box. By and by Pandora wanted to be good but was so curious she couldn't even sleep at night, finally she took the gold key from her neck and opened the box just to peek inside. Bad move, Old Age, Sickness, Insanity, Pestilence, Vice, Passion, Greed, Crime, Death, Theft, Lies, Jealousy, Famine and all the rest were unleashed upon the world, Hope was at the bottom of the box (so it's not so bad I guess.)
My box gives Pandora a fair chance, it is transparent so you can see the bad spirits inside and it is sealed shut there is no easy way to open it.
Summer is over old man winter is knocking it's going to be a long cold night, burrrrrrrrr.
