today's news: 

some sunshine, lots of amazing clouds and almost 60 degrees. no kidding.

something from ian, a new web presence! several tin cans is an anagram for his name.

i also received notification that my book actias luna is to be included in the upcoming 1000 artists' books by sandra salamony.

my old friend, poet jim cohn, has written about his sojurn in the north country and making paper here at wake robin. his delight in the paper covered windows is something i remember and share. i have his poems prairie falcon, which i treasure.

and i wrapped up a couple of bundles and put them in pickle juice. they'll stay there for a bit.

Great news all around! I remember seeing Ian's drawings way back.. they are so wonderful. Warm here today, too.... was stacking wood in just a shirt, Pasha dashing back and forth wanting to convince me to go for a walk. Pickled bundles, I'm curious what will happen with those!
