Just Because

So it's November and the day is wet and gloomy; the leaves are gone, the snow stayed on the ground for a week, the pond froze; yet there is a quiet stillness and beauty to the day.

1st Taste

Yesterday we woke to a white world, today the pond was frozen over; a taste of what's to come but maybe not quite yet.

Purging the Studio

In my determination to clean up the studio and free up working space and storage space, I tackled a pile of drawings that needed to be culled. So I started ripping and tearing with the intent of putting the pieces in the garbage; but then I noticed the torn edges of the paper and started to play. One step forward, 2 steps back for the studio clean up.

After the Storm

After the storm the moon gleams, the power is back and internet restored. Trees are down but Jack will take care of that problem. I'm still thinking of all the people in the Caribbean 5 weeks without power or clean water.

Night 3 of no power, the moon glows on the roof.
