Life has become a new thing. I'm glad I'm able to say that even though this particular new thing is unknown to a large degree. In some ways it's defined by the old things I'm inclined to keep. Or in this case, complete and then keep. I know exactly what... Continue reading

A few days back a new lithium battery for my DSLR arrived. Although I have a couple different lenses for it my favorite is the lens that I keep on the camera - a 40mm portrait lens with macro capabilities. We all know why, right? Yeah. Close-up flower portraits. I... Continue reading

August, yes. It had just begun when I took that picture of Luci and T and sent it to you hoping you could help me understand her. For me you and the particular goat - the love and longing I felt in your tone when you mentioned the flowers in that picture and how important to you they were. All three of those things are part of the same story for me. The green light that came to her, etc.
Every so often the Queen Anne's Lace seems to have a particularly beautiful season. Thought last year's showing was gorgeous but this year has been off the charts. Speaking their own language - having their own reasons. I hope all the time you could successfully get a small grove of them. especially now that you have the brown eyed susan. Am a little sorry I didn't bring the winged cat home but I wanted J's opinion first because I don't always trust myself when it comes to impulse purchases. I would say it's a simple enough thing to go back but today wasn't simple at all!

Yesterday we got the tail end of the hurricane storms. I spent most of the day absolutely miserable with migraine pain and resulting fairly profound nausea but found a few things to do in the studio. Mama was with me and the vibe was pretty calm beyond the rain and... Continue reading

So to pick up on what Mo said it just hit me that we're both doing squares. maybe for a lot of similar reasons. I don't know. but it was nice to make the connection. I have not grieved like this and felt such a powerful irreplaceable sense of loss since Howard died ...

One day over the weekend I chose scraps to use in making nine-patches for my Spiritcloth tribute. During the heatwave I lurked in my summer studio. Aside from the basement it's the coolest place in the house. Marked the scraps for cutting and sewing lines and got the individual squares... Continue reading

Very early this morning I had a dream that my grandmother was making a slow perambulation of the field garden. She was wearing a brown and white check dress she favored and vigorously shaking the fence wire all around the perimeter. When I woke up I was still partially in... Continue reading
