Well, I rarely hype Facebook here on my blog – not by choice, just not enough connection ‘tween the two for now, but needed a pic for this morning’s breaking news here in Texas, and my recent profile pic change on FB says it best 😊 Not that I do much on FB, there’s only so much time, but maybe more, eventually.
So anyway, Sheila came rushing in to the kitchen to ask me to guess who reversed their no-masks-required decision, and I jokingly “guessed” at several of our state’s leadership, but I was wrong anyway, lol! No, it’s more important than that actually – it’s where we shop to buy our food!
HEB (plus Central Market) and Albertson’s (Randalls) have reversed their no-masks-required decision from earlier this week!
HEB reverses course, will continue to require masks in stores.https://www.reddit.com/r/Austin/comments/lzjzfr/heb_reverses_course_will_continue_to_require/
Albertsons reverses course; will continue to require face masks for customers at Texas storeshttps://www.elpasotimes.com/story/news/2021/03/05/texas-face-mask-order-albertsons-require-texas-customers/4603222001/
It’s the right thing to do!
Just my opinion of course, but – grounded in guidance from the CDC.
As I quoted in a recent post when Texas went from the turmoil of our unnecessary Winter death storm to an unnecessarily early rescinding of our mask mandate, this is simple protection. And, if I were a mask, it protects you. But if you don’t, then I’m unprotected. And Sheila and I immediately knew we wouldn’t be able to shop at these stores for possibly several months, when we’d both be fully vaccinated, and, the majority of our state hit the 70% herd immunity threshold in vaccinations.
Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. The CDC recommends people wear face masks in public settings, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Wearing a face mask may limit exposure to respiratory droplets and large particles and may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus.Nov 24, 2020https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/coronavirus-covid-19-and-medical-devices/face-masks-including-surgical-masks-and-respirators-covid-19

And, as I’ve mentioned before, if vaccinations continue at the pace our new federal administration is producing, and the rate of infections and deaths continues to decline, then maybe we can more safely rescind the mask mandate by the end of this month. And certainly by the time we get to 70% vaccination of all the people in our country!
Because, make no mistake, I really dislike having to wear a mask, but I hate getting sick.
And dying prematurely would be even worse, lol! 😏
Stay well everyone! 💕

- May 15, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, “Spring Rising”I’d done a lot of deep or darker night-like paintings for a bit, so it felt pretty nice to lighten up my palette for awhile. Working back & forth, from the two approaches – playing the potential good from both approaches seems to suit my Libra middle, lol!
- May 14, 2022 – My 1st Classical Stretch Workout with Miranda Esmonde-White ( via YouTube ) in Many Months!Though similar to SilverSneakers’ classes, Miranda’s classes focus largely on making the fascia network in our bodies more fluid. Some movements are very similar, but more extended, dance-like, reflecting Miranda’s ballerina and dance background!

Definitely been a long time coming and feels great to be able to be showing with this long time Austin art association again! 😊
- May 12, 2022 – Updated My #Twitter Header Image and Pinned TweetThough Twitter’s future is up in the air, or ether, or virtual landscape; and my own “footprint” there and social media in general is micro-whatever, lol! — it’s still my micro existence, and I want to care for it best I can 😊
- May 11, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Joan Mitchell, “I carry my landscapes around with me” – #Polyptychs…my reading of Joan Mitchell’s work – while often including much of that same connection, speaks more directly to me about the impact of the canvas before me in that process. Especially most specifically in regard to Joan’s work with multi-panel / multi-canvas works of art – ie, polyptychs!
- May 10, 2022 – BW Impressionist Abstract 1, Completed!A few posts back, about a new diptych in-progress, Freedom, in the 2nd 1/2 of the post, I mentioned having another in-progress work, BW Impressionist Abstract 1, that the 9 year old ( our youngest grandchild ) said he really liked, but wanted more “gold” in it, and pointed out where & how much more gold paint 😊 So I took him at his word & did the changes –
- May 09, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, 2nd Time This Year My Top 3 Most Viewed Images Are Photographs!Part of what I find fascinating about this posting’s top 3 viewed of my images at Fine Art America, is that all 3 are BW, or mostly so! As fascinating is I’ve also had a series of intermittent paintings of featuring mostly dark tones, even some with gold tones, like as seen in Bridge into the Night above. Among them have been —
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
