Two Firsts

As we get older and acquire more experiences, there aren't as many "firsts" in our lives.  But yesterday I experienced two.

My friend, from California, was in town visiting and I had made an appointment for both of us to have foot massages in the morning.  I have never had a foot massage, or a professional massage of any kind. So this was a first.  It was nice and weird at the same time.  I will consider going back.

In the late afternoon, we attended the artist reception for my exhibition, entitled Color Fields, at the Boise State University Special Events Center.  It is my first solo exhibition (and solo artist reception).

BSU provided some nice refreshments and did everything to prepare for the event.  I just had to show up.  There was a great turnout.  Mostly people I already know, but I also met a few new people as well.  I think I talked for two hours straight, which is a lot for me (except for when a good, old friend who I don't see very often is visiting).

It was good, but this morning I was exhausted.  I had taken my camera with me, but I did not have any time to take pictures.  However, some of my friends did.  The exhibition is up until January.
