|My turquoise panels for a spring show.|
|Letters awaiting a response.|
I belong to a group called The Letter Exchange, pen pals like when we were kids. I correspond with people of all ages from all over the country, mostly artists and nature lovers. It's been an interesting way to meet people who value the same things I do. My artist friends and I illustrate our letters and decorate our envelopes. With my naturalist friends I'll share the sighting of the flicker hammering the joints of the mimosa tree looking for a meal and the premature blushing of the bushes, turning pink with hopes of an early spring.
|I added a pumpkin seed packet and some sketches.|
|The bird was already in the book, the rest is my work.|
These things may be time consuming but because of that I learn to fully appreciate what they represent. They allow me to contemplate where my time is spent and remember the importance of everyday life, the little moments. But mostly, they keep me in tune with the ever turning, spinning universe we all share.
