groaning and moaning
i've had flu, and am
five days and only
a tiny stack of shifu pages
but i did get gorgeous wool gauze from
long ridge farm (under the shifu bits)
swathes of color (thank you barn & trees) have been like food
and still the dogbane waits to be pulped
today: a slim package
she took my shifu
and made a dye concoction
and there's red.
and once again i'm photographing in light that washes out the color
there is actually richness, tones of burnt umber
i have no patience
these photos are pathetic
i made it through a half day at school today.
a book came from gary frost
but i couldn't wrap my fuggy mind around it
reading gary is always a treat
the man thinks
about the bookness of books
5 sick days
and upon recommendation
i also purchased this
which i have only briefly looked at.
how have i made it through?
you tube and lewis on the macBook
yes, i'm an anglophile mystery nut
if i could be any heroine in fiction
i would be harriet vane.
