Today is the 6th of September

“Family is a gift that lasts forever.” – unknown

…and today is my mother’s birthday. She passed away in 1991, right before my husband, my one year old son and myself migrated to Melbourne, Australia. I could still see her being so excited when she saw Tim smile at her for the first time.


… and today was also the date that Patricia had her first Solo Mini Exhibit 2 years ago entitled “Acclimatisation”.

Acclimatisation is, in its own way, Casten’s encapsulation of this process in her own life. Relationship fray. Context change. Friendships wear. But nevertheless, we persist.” The series is Casten’s adaptation to life’s new layers, one step at a time.


… and today, another milestone in Pat’s life… it’s her first day on her new job. Congrats and good luck my baby ❤️

    Really loved this post for the smiles and warm memories – and to learn a new artsy term!
