My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.

I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

The Gifts

I can't wait to share with you the very strange happenings  at the studio the week before Christmas. Let's start at the beginning. I had just finished my gift wrapping and placed my packages under the tree. I received a call from my Mom saying she and Dad had just finished wrapping and asked if they could drop them at the studio so they'll be there for Christmas.  I said sure and pulled up the leaf on the drop-leaf table and got ready to place the gifts from Mom and Dad under and around the red tree.  They arrived and unbeknownst to me the gifts were all in red and looked so pretty and looked so planned but it was not the case. Neither of us knew what the other was doing.

To make this even more crazy my sister-in-law and nephew called to see if they could bring their family gifts to the studio ahead of the snow that was about to hit.  I said sure bring them on down. Knowing they were on their way,  I went to make room under the other tree next to the fireplace and when they arrived I said to place the small ones under the tree in the big basket and then place the other ones around the tree base.  Can you believe that in all the madness I looked around and lo and behold, we had all made packages to match three different trees in the room by chance and by chance each of them got matched up with the right tree.  This was too crazy for me to try to explain!

Just thought I would share this very strange qawinkedink.
