I decided to brave the torrential rain and the ungodly, snail-like Miami traffic this past  weekend to wander around the exhibits of Art Miami.

There were so many artistic styles and mediums to take in.  For a moment, I thought there was some live art represented as one of the sculptures looked so life-like.  It seemed as if it were ready to draw its first breath at any moment!

I’m so glad to be here!

I am tired of thinking: What if…, I wish…, I wonder…, Wouldn’t it be great if…, One day….
