I have continued this very Infrequent Blog for the 1st time January of this year of 2016. I am sending this brief note to just thanks ALL of you that may receive this note. I know some of you have & have not been able to be with us at ROM of late! I also know how very much care and Love you have shared with me about so many within our Great Community of Artist's that have been so affected by everything that Life comes with each and Everyday!!
I have always said, from my Dear Grandma at age 99 when she shared this special piece of Knowledge that , "Betta Days is Coming Honey"!
I have always believed and Lived by this creed gifted to me by my Grandma many years ago.

One of my Favorite quotes that I so enjoy and I find is so appropriate for this note It reminds me so much of each and every one of you within our Communities that are vast and this outreach is International on this tiny Globe we all call and Love as our Home!!
The quote is as follows: People, ( All of you), are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine with Light when the Sun is Out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only of there is a Light from Within!!
Even at this writing so many of you have given of your time, energies, Funds and that go so very far in this great event for our Friend Rick Goggin who has brought so much Light and Love to ALL of us that know and Love him and know too that Rick is planning to be a part of the wonderful Open Mike for this coming Saturday!! Hope to see you all there in person and in Spirit if Unable to make it.
I do wan tot thank each and everyone of of OUR ROMulin Community for coming together all this year to help MIke and I to keep ROM running and expanding our Horizons for what ROM is and continues to expand and develop into going into our 9th wonderful Season of Artists coming together on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. For ROM-2017 we will be doing away with our infrequent 5th Monday ROM events so all the more for you and Families and Friends to come to us whenever the times for all of us align. You are always welcome at ROM.
Our thanks to ALL our Features and our ROMulin Open Mike Performing Artist's, Family and Friends and of course all of you that continue your Support of ROM as audience members!!
