book, green, bittersweet, shifu

 early morning fog 
drifted away into clear skies
mostly
this week
 with the foliage 
and the birds
relishing this early summer
thank you folks
for ordering my little booklet
poor (wo)man's asparagus
 it's an open edition
which means i will be able
to print (just ink jet, not letterpress)
more when i wish.
there are a few from the first run still left.
~~~
this giant hosta leaf is
 
happily huge by my porch
also on the porch
in a little planter
a gift from bittersweet farm
a lettuce garden
replenishable salad
here's brian from bittersweet farm
showing my students how to haul
piglets. four mondays in may at the farm
taught us all new skills
and empowered us as citizens.
time to weave some shifu 
cotton warp, 20 epi, 5 yards (give or take)

what is it about fog and dew that are so ideas conductive?
love the warping fiend photo :)

Velma said...

neki, maybe the humidity keeps the ideas "to home" and lack of sun makes us pay attention?
