the sky and apologies

apologies to anyone 
who has left comments that have disappeared.
i think i've fixed it.
your feedback matters
very much, and i think
i think
 i have conquered the latest blogger bedevilment.
 watcher and noisy one
 a present
 timely
unwrapping 
 anything
 from
 is a treat.
(the indigo didn't photograph blue enough)
and this new book is a delight!
i am loving the stories
of these men seeking 
out rock paintings
in the 50's and 60's
a little north and west of here
i think they were using this as an excuse
to go canoeing 
in the great north woods
with their kids.

HA! I think most explorers might not have known what to do with themselves in an armchair... so, adventure called! Fits with the big sky theme - for, wouldn't a wild heart much prefer an endless expanse of starry sky and a campfire to a hearth and armchair? Though, I must admit, sheepskins, cat friend, wood stove and sofa are good, too!!

Wonderful Indigo book...

valerie, i DO like tiny explorations...around places i'm interested in, but canoeing in the canadian shield (i think that's the right term) totally appeals!

I would love to peek into that book Velma... very drawn to rock engravings and such visual material from long ago.
lovely little book... 'the sky is so'.
I started writing again last night about seeds... lovely to read your comment at my (secret) studio blog ... well its not secret but lets just say... not being a major online-highway it serves as a quiet retreat. Words have a way at helping arrive at threads of thinking that give value... and of course that is always evident here ... and whenever you leave small but potent thoughts to ponder!
Thank YOu!
