A Monday it certainly has been, busy as expected. I'd like to put on a pot of coffee & let the hours evaporate in the studio - yet something tells me I'm better off calling it a night & starting strong tomorrow morning. Here's to a successful day, good conversations... Continue reading

I love starting my day this way, even if it means getting up earlier. Time to check in with everyone, review my schedule & make some calls. I'm already looking forward to tonight.

There's something ceremonial about laying down a comfy blanket under your favorite tree & reading a good book. No interruptions, it's breezy; the universe in sight just beyond the pages you're reading. Fall has offered moments like this in contrast to the usual syndication's. I love it. Here's to slowing...

All-nighter's are becoming a thing lately, my thing. Ear phones go in, window gets opened, night air falls & I'm in heaven. I blink & the sun has made its way back to the start. Tonight calls for something a bit different. Paint perhaps, inky fingers maybe. The night is... Continue reading

Truth; most likely because I'm part gypsy. Curiosity has been my constant companion - the saving thing actually. Interested about the world, not just my immediate surroundings. Perhaps this is why I spend countless hours here in my workshop. Painting, matching fabrics, twisting fiber, sketching with charcoal, fingers wet with... Continue reading

I was waiting to board a flight home & decided to pull out some ink & paper. The result, some semblance of St. Francis, a familiar sight growing up with animals. I love moments like this. Headphones in, hot tea nearby & a panorama of the countryside. I keep ink... Continue reading

If I can't live in NorCal, I can bring some of it back with me. While we walked the grounds of Davis Arboretum, I found this fallen branch, my niece found these wood-like flowers. A glue gun, some hooks & 15 minutes later, we're in business. Hung next to the... Continue reading

I love nights like this. All my Lovies are sleeping, dishwasher & washing machine hard at work while Pandora dominates my immediate atmosphere. Time to exhale...

The local crowd says you can experience all 4 seasons in one day - "that's normal." Mother Nature assures... Continue reading
