Breaking away to Seaside

Me and Aunt Deanna at Seaside

Me and Aunt Deanna at Seaside

Over the weekend, I was able to break away from myself to Seaside to visit my 91 year old Aunt Deanna from Brazil.  She read me a letter that was written in Portuguese, her native language. It’s hard to imagine how she could still read a letter in a language as complicated as Portuguese and still talk with me in English. She is incredible.

We went to Mo’s for brunch, drove around Cannon Beach, and ate dessert at a yogurt shop. She was worn out. But she still smiled and commented that she was having a good time. She is the aunt who was posed with me  in the picture with me on the cover of my book.   This is a picture of my aunt holding up my picture of the “Red Rose” that I painted.
