Dream Fugue

Julija the Butterfly Girl

From our Buffalo front of the University Avenue house and our wildflower garden.  By far the most hardy garden ever - even under 3 feet of snow colorful little flower faces shown through!  You can see Colonel Coco, a sculpture Allie and I made out of chicken wire and an empty hot chocolate container and other stuff, in the background.  We made him to act as our scarecrow to keep the squirrels from eating the sunflower plants.  He worked pretty well, before he lived in the garden the squirrels would eat the sunflower seeds before they even sprouted!  Happy times in Buffalo.

Say I Am You Beaded Necklace

Smooth and cool to the touch; 4 colorful ceramic beads hung on a simple red cord.
Beads from ChelleV2 and cording found at Samadhi

Bowdoin College

I had a lovely day at Bowdoin College watching the Castleton and Lyndon teams compete in the NCAA XC Championship Race. Spent some time with Julija and then visited the Arctic Museum and the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.  The Arctic Museum had an exhibit of Inuit art; it was a fabulous show and they let me take some pictures!

....Life imitating art.

November Dreams

within each moment
a stillness
a seam of emptiness
of not knowing
dreaming in
the breath
