better late than never for

on a personal note, a number of years ago,
I used the word "Oriental", a word I grew
up with and was/am totally comfortable with.
My teenage daughter was horrified, and
told me it was racist.
Who knew?
I am still comfortable with it, and no,
I am not a racist. lol
hugs to you.


  1. This is so elegant and beautiful!! The images are gorgeous!! I didn't know using Oriental was supposed to be racist, either!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  4. So lovely to see you here Electra. I think the correct term is East Asian or some such lol. Everything is so politically correct these days. Love your postcard

  6. This is peaceful and calm. xxx

  7. I have learned that things are Oriental, but never people! You are right. Who knew? It was not offensive in our day, but much has changed. What has not changed is the quality of your artwork! I have missed seeing it. This is a great example here. This is elegant simplicity or is it simple elegance? Love it, Electra!
