Greetings friends. I was somewhat dumbstruck this morning when I realized August was history. September hours begin tomorrow at the food cart, school starts next weeks for the grands, I bought a boiled wool sweater. Oh yes I did. I saw it coming. This summer was hot but it was the summer we finally got […]
Maggie and Milly and Molly and May
Somebody left a poem in our beach book in early July of 1999. As I often do, I was reading back in the volumes to see what we were doing this same week in other years. This poem struck me as a summing up of beach time for us… maggie and milly and molly and […]
Whaat? It’s August 1st? Hi…it’s been a while. My exhibit is over and I’ve navigated the often-post-show let-down…and in checking my photo file I see a lot has happened but I’m speechless on this subject so I’ll just roll out some images thereby proving summer is summer, mine not too different from yours…beach, garden, family…occasional […]
Living in the Summer Moment…
Well we’re ALL trying to “live in the moment”…to “lessen our screen time”…to enjoy our lives as we live them…yes? Yes. That precludes writing about these moments, but I continue to gather the images as if I WERE writing about them, and now I’m way behind. So how about trying to catch up with just […]
What to Do in June…
Well the month is half gone…the light remains until 9:00 p.m….there’s lots of time to do stuff. Things comes into the house as shares … there are the activities of house-holding… play… …oh…draw… sew… look at art… send off the last Circle 8 drawing book… Draw… and draw… and it isn’t even summer yet…ahhhh.
I haven’t been in the studio much…Italy, 4th of July, grandbaby….so today I sort of sunk in for a while. It’s cool out there in the studio (temperature wise, I mean) totally shaded by a walnut tree and a bay tree intertwined. As is my habit, I try to find some past work to look […]
Oh bliss…this is it, don’t you think? Berries… pie and birthdays dinners with neighbors (and here R had to borrow Evan’s garden gloves to open the champagne…) drives to the beach… More dinners… Thanks for the evening, you guys! heading home with a view of the Bay… …and GUYS…it isn’t even the 4th yet!
Wow…busy week around here…but kind of a miscellaneous week to make a narrative out of… It WAS a week with ART in it though…Elizabeth, Alex and I spent two days in Corrie’s summer studio (a generous offer on Corrie’s part)…she the first artist in residence whereby the CCC gallery is turned into a big studio […]
Summer. Got to try to live in the moment, so the narrative suffers. Here’s a digested version of what’s been happening in the far west: The beach. A week. So hot in the valley most all the beach views are misty and cool… and the sunsets were, well, muted, let’s just say… There was outside […]
Coffee on the deck this morning looking down into the phlox, making me happy to be in this garden, but ESPECIALLY to have such a lovely summer day. We took a bike ride to Minto Island, where last year about this time we were picking Queen Ann’s lace for the wedding! But today…we just had […]
