Ruidoso Art Festival :: July 25-27,2014

July 6, 2014

Days have flown by in the Foley household since Artwalk back in April. A few significant, troubling Parkinson’s disease issues arose, so  April and May were in large part given over to visiting Jim’s neurologist and working on keeping Jim going strong. We’ve returned to our level of “normal” – and are both creating jewelry [...]

Sneak Preview of Why I Haven’t Blogged Since November

January 18, 2011

Okay, excuses, excuses. After the November show in Albuquerque, I did one last show of the year at The Gallery at Round Top in December. (2010 seems so long ago to me now.) After that early December show I put my head down and finished the book I have been working on for the last six [...]

Commitment Rules!

June 28, 2010

Commitment: 3. The state of being bound emotionally or intellectually to a course of action or to another person or persons: a deep commitment to liberal policies; a profound commitment to the family.

Life Jogs Along – Swiftly!!

November 30, 2009

O.K. So, I haven’t posted recently. Forgive Me. After all, Jim survived a BAD VIRUS – not the H1N1!. However. Just as bad for him, as it gave him vertigo. Yes. Already he has bad balance due to P.D., and then he was struck with a virus in his inner ear.   Well, all is [...]
