I will always remember a snarky comment I heard once from someone about another person, who laughed that “she didn’t know the meaning of the word penultimate,”  with a snigger in his voice.  It is funny the way word associations can stick in your mind–in my case I do know the meaning of the word, and my, what a good word it is!  So here I am, working on the penultimate piece of art in my series of 12.  In other words, it is almost time to celebrate, or rest, as I feel so inclined.
