love love moss, it must be the season…I found some moss colored cotton on the recent trip. there's a magical moss garden near here. like the idea of ties- they could be reconfigured into different paths & if "Home" had ties they could join onto it. a cloth playground.

I'm glad I thought to take the photo, rather than sending him off to wash for dinner. His head is always spinning with ideas, more than he knows what to do with. So my child.

Thanks, Liz. I am happy watching them grow, knowing they are such a good centered guys. My crazy-making comes from wanting to protect them from whatever may lurk out there. I'm bound to calm down sometime.

I have no idea how it happened?! & he's 6'3"! I do sometimes think of Wesley & you & how she's gracefully grown, gone, returned, ready to go again… slowly orbiting out into a new world.

I"m waiting for that "ah-ha" moment.

I see the results of TWO busy bees! Just love that beautiful deep sea blue.

After printing and tracing it onto fabric, I'm stitching Moon's recent hand art onto muslin. Recent days have held a roller coaster of feelings about my boys growing up. There was that prom night (aka hotel request), Blue's 17th birthday - when I started to cry while making of his... Continue reading

Yes, sad. & yes, this one moment is not enough to tip the scale of her world. She said she didn't paint/draw much, but maybe now she will start. She's in 4th grade, the assit. principal & her teacher commented to the art teacher on how she seems different this past week- proud, so to build on that. I will see her Wednesday and tell her what you've shared about her work. If the budget allows & I am able to return next year, then I will see her daily…hoping.

I asked about this today, and also if I could quietly give her a paint set & paper for home, both answers were an understanding, but clear "no". What I can do is write her a thank you card, w/the photo of herself & her painting- telling her what I love about it & hope for her. & I can tell her about the lovely goat woman artist who wished she could buy one, too. the limits of this job are so hard sometimes. thank you for another gift to share with her, xo

It was so very mutual.

I saw her today in the hallway…she's still glowing, me too.

wouldn't that be something?

I hope she has the chance to be fed over & over

I would love to tiptoe through the stones and petals…I'm going to think on what the tiptoe stitch might look like.

This week has been foggy- jet lag, a different work schedule, baseball play-offs, our friend's memorial, and the school art show. Our art teacher arranged a wonderful exhibit and sale of some of the students' art at a local gallery, as a fund raiser for the arts program. When I... Continue reading

a path to and from Home. (I imagine getting out all the toy animals to travel along it & wishing I could shrink & join them)
