Beach Walk 677 – An Investment in Friendship

We are still traveling hence the light shows this week. We filmed this last week so we would all have an extra dose of beautiful Hawaii! It’s about a different way of looking at love, using friendship rather than romance as the guide. Ever notice how we treat friends better than lovers, once the relationship has been around for a while? I think we sometimes expect too much of a partner, as if somehow love means losing me in favor of your wishes. This episode was inspired by something my mom told me – and her birthday is this weekend by the way. We’ll be honoring her 84 years of determination and self-reliance, generosity and indeed good friendship.

Beach Walk 513 – My Mother, The Artist

Today starts at the beach (a gorgeous day!) then cuts to a video chat with my mom, Blanche Benton, who is 83 (though she forgets occasionally!).

She has become a great technology user and little did we know, she has a collection of paintings and drawings done over the years, never before seen. She is planning an art show next week, and I wanted her to tell you what a positive effect this has had on her, in her own words.
