I think we know we can’t really stay safe. Staying safe depends on our village staying safe and even in the loveliest village there is always somebody who doesn’t pay attention, somebody who doesn’t think of the good of the village. Pandemic talk. Unmasked shoppers trying to go into TJ’s insisting on “my right to […]
coloring was very popular… Dinosaurs were very popular Cheryl had the best mask Books, always a favorite, Legos an old painting of mine in a new home… Joe the cat remained untroubled throughout and then we said goodbye to this little village and headed home… I cleared my art supplies and gift wrap off the […]
We’re getting ready…enjoying having all the usual stuff out again… Adding some festive touches… But kid-wise, it’s a dinosaur Christmas…and we’ve brought in the big guns… We’ve had a book here that Sidney always has liked and in the low-shopping mode this year I thought maybe I’d wrap it up and give it to him […]
I’m mucking out my studio in earnest these days as December is underway…move out in December, move into new space in January…sorting, tossing…keep/save? Dilemmas. And slow because, as usual, thing have a way of popping up…Here’s Susan’s photo of 2018 when things were tidy for an Open Studio… but several exhibits later I’ve tossed through […]
In an effort to remain positive, in spite of the news arc, here are some uplifting items from the last week…from this little world.

We do the familiar things. The furniture and umbrellas come in off the deck, the porch. We make soup. We read and draw and cut the last Hydrangeas from the garden. We vote. We prune… But this winter is perilous. The Covid-19 virus is raging around the country and the cases are so numerous that […]
Friends…I saw this quote on my friend Elizabeth’s IG feed and I realized that there is really only this question: what is the world you want to live in? See you after the election…keep in touch.
Roger and I and our neighbor Gloria are trying to take back the sanctuary of our gardens after the recent ugly moments. The gun fight left marks here… Our niece Fanny suggested burning sage to dispel the negative energy. I’m not much of a believer in such things, but the “negative energy” was strong the […]
I had meant to write you a cheery semi-inspirational post today…one that began with my first chore… Applesauce from windfall apples (thanks to Susan.). I went off about 9:50 this morning to get a haircut, fearing it might be the last for awhile as the virus closes in again. Then I got a text from […]
