I am happy to see so many bees. I look forward to next year’s garden now that I am a bit more familiar with what will grow here. Rain barrels are the next project. And maybe an ark… just sayin’… The red line is drawn. Stitched. Pressed into the cloth, It seems the beginning of a basket. I sense so many here already. And the line came through. I had spread it on the floor, to look. Covered in cat […]
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.
There was a storm. A small branch fell from an overhead tree to the deck below. The young morning glory, previously supported by a wooden skewer was hanging down, knocked over by the heavy rain. I stuck the branch into the soil, for it to lean on, before going to bed. In the morning, this. I really like looking at Freedom over Grow. And how it seems to have become some sort of personal medicine wheel. It seems as wet […]
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 […]
These pictures and text were cut and pasted from my old blog. Click to enlarge. A post from around this time last year as I floundered around trying to hold myself together, focused on larger cloth. Now, I’m circling. This is one of my methods for reconsideration. Today I am going to create a project page for GROW. To gather it’s story. Because I am back in it. Maybe it’s the season. Yesterday, this happened. What if everything can be […]
A Plan can seem restrictive. It’s so trendy these days to say you don’t have one. You know, the free and easy carefree you and some how things magically work out. But really, there is always a loose plan. An idea. Not necessarily a vision of how it will be but just a vision of how it could be. If you are not brain dead, there is always an idea. For the first time in a long time, I have […]
When we moved here, this hill was hidden by fallen trees, brush and a lack of care. This is the view from the kitchen area, near the washing machine which we will move to the basement so we can make this a sitting/eating area. The water connection will not cost too much, there is already plumbing down there. The dryer, which is rarely used when it is above freezing, will be moved too but maybe not connected for now. Some […]
