So far, this summer of 2019 has been filled with wonderful experiences.
First of all, my “Hineni” print was used for the cover of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism’s 2019-2020 calendar diary
It is available through the WLCJ.
Then I attended the Society of Gilders biennial conference, this time at Macalester College, in St. Paul Minnesota. Everyone thought it was one of the best conferences ever. The college could not have been more helpful, and our teachers outdid themselves. I even took two classes – here, in Gregory Dixon’s class on using a gilding wheel to roll aluminum leaf (pix by Aurora Finishes). It is not easy!
We also had many social events, including an art show of member’s work. Here are most of the attendees.
Then, at the end of June, two friends and I took a cruise to Alaska! It was 10 days of bliss, gourmet food, and beautiful scenery. One of the highlights was experiencing a sled dog run at Tagish Lake Kennels (I’m in the front left) and speaking afterwards with Michelle Phillips, who has run the Idtitarod 9 times.
And did I mention the scenery?
Here’s a view of the Mendenhall Glacier, and one of the sunset from the ship:
And later this summer I look forward to celebrating a special birthday, with my friends and family.
The trip to Israel (see previous post) still has spaces left. Please let me know if you are interested.
