Hollowed out to make a home, a tree is a fort and a thinking place. 
A home with a view.
A space to crawl into when you need time for yourself,
This tree is home.

My phone lit up with my 'word of the day'
as I was editing some photos from a couple years ago. 
I found a mood here, and an image fit for the mood tonight ~
Happy snow fall to my friends suiting up for the spooks of evening treats,
as you prepare your suits of snow armour,
coming soon...

...a man is a dope who yells and storms
at the lack of the driver's uniforms...


This is an Out Loud Thought

 
To be moved and to move those in your reach, tune into the soul that molds.
I had the pleasure of listening, watching and absorbing 
the incredible sounds of John Carroll.
You will be engaged ~

Find a giggle... it could always be worse.
 "Affair In Trinidad" - Rita Hayworth (1952) 



Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain...

I am put together by the rain,
attached to my layers.
I wash away weekend lives
and absorb the fall flavours.

A Scene


The skies are dimming, the lake is stilled. The fire in the house crackles and murmurs. The mood simmers.  I am awake, smelling coffee with banana fingers as I type my way to absolution.   Today is a day for forgiveness, melding my mind with new beginnings.

The best laid plans

 
In any given venture there are rules to the engagement.  I believe these rules are directions.  Today has been a day of paths.
And, believe it or not, I didn't have a map.

A Happening

Days carry over into the visceral. The moments that keep us poised are the moments that suspend us into the air like frozen time crystals acknowledging all that is about to happen... you are excited… you are inspired...

Please excuse my belated reply into this month... it seems I was going one way, and then the Universe brought me back to myself - balance.  

Your warm wishes for current matters of the artistic heart are very much appreciated.

Tomorrow starts today.

The biological world takes us beyond our own bounds, it is more than us and it does not depend on us. - Kirsty Wilson

"I am very interested in how my somewhat ambiguous forms create an invitation for the viewer to explore their own imagination and draw their own conclusions about what they are seeing. I enjoy the diverse artistic conclusions that range from viewer to viewer because it demonstrates just how relative human perspective can be, even with simple observation."
- Kirsty Wilson

"It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you've known forever don't see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”

Family conversations resurrected in the wake of postpartum turkey:

 
“All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.”

“Begin, be bold, and venture to be wise.” - Horace

{a.currie}
 
Moving day looks sunny.

What came first, art or community?!

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.” 
~ John Donne
