“Where you going on your vacation, Foxie?” my dad’s friends would ask.  “Oh, I dunno’.  We’re thinking about Bed Springs, or maybe Veranda Beach.”  Everyone would laugh.   We never really went anyplace on my parents’ vacation from work back in the 1960s.  We’d hang around home, play games in the yard, barbecue.  I rode my tricycle on the porch so large I could turn around at each end; I played on the swingset; we went swimming.  I enjoyed it.  My Grandmother and Aunt and Uncle would come by, and of course, there were always neighbors.

I am trying to think about these days as a home vacation.  We might even head back to Roccamalatina after Modena has three days without a death-by-corona-virus.  I have bocce and badminton there, and a barbecue.  I am trying to get jazzed about having a vegetable garden, but really for me, flowers are much more appealing.   I can always buy tomatoes; ok, maybe 2 plants.

One of my wisest friends has been telling me for years I need to do things using my “cool” energy, rather than with the hot energy of youth.  He asks me what I’ll when I can no longer paint:   “look at Renoir”.  I sometimes see his point when I’ve been out in the studio too long in the cold, or when we’ve packed our supplies into a forest setting.   This staycation is the perfect opportunity to figure this out.

Blair and I have always loved our older, wiser friends.  We were crazy about our grandmas; and my aunts and uncles.   We both still love to spend time with those more experienced than us.  And we still look to them:  compiling books, writing computer programs, setting up art foundations.   I just have to figure out where I am going for phase II.
