The Seniors that come into the Akiyama Wellness Center for the most part are very active. There are a few that need assistance but for the most part, all are active and involved. Yesterday was a day of random acts of kindness. One senior heard that I was told not to use so many post-its notes in my efforts to get my office organized. Write everything down in one notebook so I have it all in one place. One of my seniors went out and used her Costco coupon and got me a stack of 20 post-it notes. She told me to go have fun now. :) Another very frail senior came in with a big boxes of gardenia. One of her neighbors is a grower and even with them not lasting more than a day she thought we would like. These random acts of kindness always bring a smile.
Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
