This week I found myself craving to work from photos or actual people.
I want to see how light and shadows
bring a person to our sight,
my imagination is not quite good enough to do this- yet
I found a photo from my childhood
a young man I dated (blush and smile),
I have not been in touch with him for 30 years.
The amazing thing is
I can feel his spirit in this,
drawing is becoming entirely fascinating to me.
A few days ago, a frightening thing happen,
I spilled wine on my laptop!
I tipped the computer over to pour the wine off and the screen went black.
It seemed I killed it!
Yes it is backed up.... but still this little Apple computer is expensive.
My photography business Spirithelpers is on it,
both blogs, my website, calendar, address book, music, poetry
well you get it.
I sat it in front of a heater. I took it up to the loft, the hottest place when the wood stove is going in this wee cabin. I let it dry out.
The next day, the 4th try and it started up!
I feel thankful and happy. Whew!
So today at a thrift store I found a old coffee table for $5.
Perhaps handmade and of oak, my favorite tree if one can have a favorite tree.
I brought it home and stripped the funky finish off it, materials $25.
I think it is wonderful:
The point to this story is,
drinks on the coffee table, not the computer table!
Do you see my friends in the background?
