To celebrate the end of the heat wave today, I turned off the A/C, opened all the windows, and moved furniture around! My appetite having returned I spent some time in the kitchen cooking and made meatballs for pasta and a big bowl of fresh salsa. They had bunches of fresh cilantro in the grocery store yesterday and it looked and smelled luscious. Tasted great in the salsa too Later in the day I decided to go to the Helen Carlson Nature Sanctuary and walk through the stillness of the vegetation. I saw frogs jumping and fended off mosquitoes with no bug spray on me. I just can’t stand the feel of that stuff on my skin. The nature sanctuary becomes more overgrown each time I go there so I make my way around the fallen trees on the path. It is very peaceful and serene here.
Yesterday’s blog post with photos from a garden center opened wide my nearly 4 month blogging hiatus and thinking about this made me realize that it is important to me to keep going and share my art and photos here. Right now I am loosely working through Inner Excavation by Liz Lamoreux in a guided study group with Effy Wild. Loosely means I am excavating the present, the here and now, not memories of the past which is more the focus of the book. This book has made me realize how much I love taking photos and I had forgotten that I like to write poetry too, so I want to branch out and incorporate more of these elements in my mixed media work.
