this week: a little bit better

i pass this every morning on my way to school
 and this on the way home
 on friday,
amish farmers getting in the corn
 two young heifers visited my driveway the other day
 and on the other side of the drive
wild grapes
 cattail
 fiber
always looking for fiber
 thistledown
prickly wonderful
 tiny seed fibers
big arbor vitae bast fiber
mostly deep under and inside 
on this fence post
 and color
 the colors of the meadows
just perfect
and the big moon above.
autumnal equinox.
it's time.
time to get some studio work done.
almost time, that is.

The colors of autumn are upon us... glad this are better. Looking over a large pile of wood to the studio... and until there is no pile, I will still be looking at it from afar. But not for long.

oh my... I'm loving those equines and bovines and colours everywhere.... and the moon! (we have been marveling at the moon over this side of the pond too)

V - so many visual stimulants - walks and drives are but excuses to check out the palette of the world around us. Go well. B

I love how these images give me a sense of place - of where you are. So different to our own world, but the moon we share! Go gently...

All very pre-fall and lovely. I saw that moon too and it was grand. Haven't been following, but I take it your sister has not been well which makes me sad. Best wishes.

aimee, i know...sometimes i just get in way over my head, and then i remember that, if we are lucky, there will be more next year.
jean, i love fibre, and have not got the wearwithall (sp?) to spell it the canadian/british way.
alice, all so good and positive
valerie, we knew it was coming, but still...
ronnie, the constant moon
barry, so true
fiona, yes, but all of this wonderful globe. i will be in oz again next year--
christine, yes, she is out of the woods, but has exploratory surgery coming up for a non-related, but newly diagnosed issue. she is a tough bird, though.
