Artfest Bound

Just popped in for a hasty virtual hug before I twirl my scarf around my neck and head off to Artfest. This is my 4th year at Artfest; my second year of teaching there. How I love the solitary drive up I-5 with my big notebook at my side, writing down an occasional idea as the scenery passes by. I do some of my best thinking in the car. And I'm so excited about Artfest; every year I think it cannot possibly be better than the previous year and every year it gets better. It is a gathering of open hearts and sharing.

These were in the camera so I'll share them. Peppers in the foreground and tomatoes in the rear. Husky little brutes and swarthy too; growing so fast they'll need re potting soon.

Tomatillos for the green salsa and mole. It does a heart good to see growing things. Notice how the patient gardener (John) has supported each sprout with a twist tie. He is the best plant mother in the world.

Talk amongst yourselves. I'll see you in about a week. xoxoxo

Be safe and happy, the Universe is unfolding as it should, the clematis is bending over with beauty, the puppies are sleep in our bed as I write this fighting a nasty cold, and indeed the seeds are reaching for the ceiling in the little incubator. Life is good, enjoy your journey, we will see you and John when you get back. Love from both of us.

Have a wondrous beautimous time. Lots of pix, lots of stories -- for you as well as us, lol. Good Farmer that he is, John knows the little touches are not so little, helping the small things grow.

Interesting about you thinking in the car when driving alone. I don't drive but I do a lot of my thinking and working things out when I'm walking on my own. I think walking and drawing are my two meditations.

I'm jealous of your little seedlings. Are those skewer supports and bread ties? That is genius. I'll have to do that for my leggy plantlings.
