April is a very good month.
The tomatoes are coming along.
The peppers are sending up determined energy.
A slumber party with some dear ones in a cabin on Discovery Bay near Port Townsend.
Where rocks were collected.
And journals written in.
A ferry was taken across the water to Edmonds.
And a class was taken with an admired colleague.
Everything was recorded in the journal.
These sketches were made after brayering color on the page.
After staring at the page for awhile little figures begin to emerge.
I capture the figures unquestioningly.
I think John Cage would approve.
Weird gifts from the beyond.
Perfect for calming the restive spirit.
Captured words while doodling; Clarissa Pinkola Estes on CD.
The year is gathering steam.
I am paying attention.
And I am happy. Really, really happy and grateful.
