The Varied Life

I keep waiting for a coherent body of photos, events, thoughts to surface (other than the car wash)…to no avail.  I guess the life I’m leading is chaotic these days, so lets go anyway…we left the car wash and headed east …first stop Edgefield, a destination spot in a former poor farm…odd but true, and now very beautiful…

Our room had tons of windows and was lovely day and night…

and then we headed east stopping briefly at Vista House

Hood River, Dufur, Maupin, Madras, Sisters…over the pass

down into Salem in the middle of a spring wind storm…

Studio time…

We’ve spent some time with the laughing boy…

 

and visited some artists including Henk

and we took Jon Bunce a funny little painting of his boyhood home that Mary Lou Zeek found at a junk sale…

We had a play-date at Sara and Marcus’  house where Sidney fed the fish and made a play-dough birthday cake…

I worked on the cross quilt…

we saw a nice Alden Mason painting at Mark Humpal’s (with a rug made by Amanda Snyder in front…)

and we went to the beach where the view from our living room has looked about like this for the last 25 years…

and virtually every time we have driven up we have expected to see the trees cut and a mobile home on the site…and finally…the day came…

there’s more probably, but not for tonight.

  1. Oregon Field Guide just did a charming piece on “WHY, Dufur”…..(nice timing) and LOVE the surfacing of the “old home” painting…..the “cosmos” gets it “right” now & then….course, Mary Lou, very active member of the cosmos !!

  2. As always, your words and photos bring a song to my heart…..thank you so much for sharing the wonders of your life!
    i did get off the hill. My son took me to Colorado Springs to visit the joy of our life, Kaytelynn, now 25 yrs. old. We had a most wonderous time. She took her dad and grandmother to see everything worth seeing (that only a week would allow). Even a day trip to Denver!
    Spring had sprung in the Springs! We enjoyed 70 to 75 degrees each day….until the last, when we were hit with snow and 66 mph winds. Quite exciting!

  3. I so enjoyed your post from a river to stormy weather to a delightful giggling boy to a beautiful quilt !! Hope you have wonderful neighbors move it.
