Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
Queen Anne's Lace dries beautifully. I've used it before, making boxes out of glass and sandwiching it between two pieces of glass.SO sorry your class was cancelled! I really enjoyed mine. They offer it every year, but having it in the Stone House again might be in jeopardy, so it might be in Portland. They have different artists every year as presenters so many of us 'older' (ahem) folk take it more than once! Intense, but great. ( 7 days straight 9-5...then a project and exhibit in early Sept.)
Very envious of your class and the results . . . tho not of the intensity. . . Maybe I need something milder, you know, like an hour once a week. :))
That is one enchanting photo of a "noxious weed"! Stars and sparkles & magic & art! I've been seeing them alongside the road, but have not taken the time to stop to really look, so thank you for showing...
Maybe you will draw and paint some? Mm?
They are a mid to late summer occurrence here in the Midwest. I've always considered them more of an end of summer wildflower. The longer I view your photo, the more convinced I am that this is true. They are really snowflakes in disguise.
'End of summer' whaaah, sob, but yes, they're coming after all the other summer blooms. And I see them as snowflakes, too. Incredible the intricacy.
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
