this is one of the four chipmunks i've relocated this spring
this is what keeps me sane
and some of the insane stuff:
photos that won't rotate
shanna leino made the etchings on this little snippie
the spine of the binding from my book from tim's class
with some of tim's paper
and the text block
the stairs are almost complete in the new place
all the woodwork is yellow birch.
the living room looking into his room
white trilliums on the turn
i think this is the seed head from coltsfoot
at the new place
a new rodent has appeared!
a black squirrel
first i've seen around here
i've caught 3 woodchucks
two live trapped and relocated
you can see both traps here,
chipmunk and woodcock hostels.
i take them far enough away
they won't return.
postcard from gabby
again the photo problem!
a print from suzanna
whose pup insisted it come to me.
i don't usually get this sort of message
after going to the after hours clinic
(why? i'm cleaning the garage and barn
stepped on a nail,
and it's been too long since the last tetanus)
and you rule was with this amazing book--
in maine i sold some paper
and had several conversations,
one with todd and his wife--
i don't remember in that great rush their faces,
but i do remember talking about
the book he wanted to make with my paper
and katie mcgregor's paper
for the pages, and i asked
for a photo (i always do-i love to see what people make!)
well, todd sent me a book!
with sky blue mcgregor paper
after the morning's medical intervention,
i found this beautiful gift in the mail.
thank you all who have sent me
little somethings in the mail.
this week has been rocky in several ways.
but i feel sustained by affirmations
of the importance of fine craft. fine work. good work.
and those amazing human beans (as the bfg called us).
