I'm pretty excited today. I donated a painting to "Hearts for Haiti" and it sold the next day. Proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders, a wonderful cause. The painting was "Frangipani". There are some really cute and inexpensive items on the site; check it out.

Tomorrow I get the pins out of my arm and a new cast. My painting group, the Pieces of 8, are going to decorate it, which will be very creative, for sure. You should see the beautiful job they did on the aprons our member Jini gave us for Christmas.

My heart is breaking for the people of Haiti. The outpouring of concern and help is wonderful, except for Pat Robertson, who says they deserve it. His brand of Christianity sure differs from mine. Small children injured and homeless are just fine with him, I guess, as he sits in his sturdy, comfy home. I suppose the thousands of real Christian missionaries in Haiti who were killed or injured deserve it too, for helping such undeserving people.

Monday I painted with the Pieces of 8 and did this little painting. Since I can’t drive, Hap picked me up and we drove to the frame shop. We had picked some molding and were chatting with the owner when I finally noticed that Hap had shaved his beard! It took me 30 minutes to notice. Has my infirmity made me that self-involved? Our lives have been revolving around The Wrist; prop up The Wrist; doctor appointment for The Wrist; don’t get The Wrist wet…I should give the thing a name. I just read a book about Lafayette, hero of both the American and French revolutions; perhaps I shall call The Wrist “Lafayette.” “Put Lafayette in a sling…Lafayette is hurting me…let Lafayette rest on the pillow.” I like it.
