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 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?
