This is Woody. We met on the first day here. These two doves do everything together. Maybe I should rename this blog Spirit Birds. I am boiling up the black walnuts today. They have been soaking since last fall. Frozen on and off for months, thawed and smelling spicy. The dyepo(e)ts stay out on the porch most of the time. Gotta move them anyway. We need an outside fire pit. Should think about that again. But, in terms of frame, […]
May or an Impression of May… in early morning light. Over a cloth called Heal. How one just fits to the other. How one thing becomes another through pairing. Pairings. Each giving something to New Form. I know it is spring, I have my first poison ivy. And today I consider more seriously leaving the metaverse, a big step to somewhere else. It is warm and sunny and I am going outside to plant more morning glories. Maybe build a […]
Humid, way hot, yet turning. The light begins to seep through the tired foliage. We are opening to autumn. I am back to the circle that I drew on Grow, tracing the edge of the round glass table it sits on. Maybe it just defined my current reach. Now red, like a ring of fire.
A Deeper Place I have been in this Frame of Mind, working on this one for a long slow while. And slow rose up in my mind this morning, as a word, as a a concept, as the buzzword. Maybe slow is not about speed. Many times things catch on because they are easy, or they are an excuse rather than an idea. Like ragged edge, boro, turns into an excuse not to turn the edge rather than the many […]
To become what? What if we just let go? To envision is not really an end. But a way. To keep moving. While I move through this one, with a bit of Liquid Applique, Freedom is resting on Heal. Again, it seems to belong there. I drew some lines. While remembering many Small Journeys that brought me here.
Yesterday… it was a moon. Today it became a sun. What if that makes it both? I’m splitting hairs…. splitting hairs It’s raining. And I need it. Sun. And I am thinking about sun. And I went back to look at some old sun storming. Sun-storming from Sun Moon Stars warmth, sunrise/sunset, daytime, sundial, radiance, center, rays, yellow, sunshine makes me happy, what’s new under the sun, solar energy, shadow, sky, life, constant I’m focused on the Center aspect and […]
G. G is for green and yes there is more and more Green. And G is for Gross, the humidity and heat that is. But G is also, suddenly, for Goodness Gracious, Love in the Mist comes in colors! Grow is on the table. I am not measuring, just eyeballing, and now drawing a circle. The circle is drawn. measure G is for the page I made for Grow that needs attention. And G is for the Glossary I added […]
The Storm was wild, but not here. A bit of wind, distant thunder, and then a slow cooling drizzle all night. It was close to 90 yesterday, almost a 30 degree climb from the day before. Power is out for some folks I hear, but not here. Things are growing and it is all very calming. The mustard greens were glistening this morning, must have grown 3″ overnight. These are in the deck planter, which can feed us really. There […]
