Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Thomas Merton

I've added some Gadgets to the sidebar. Various "stuff of the day" sorts of things. There's the NASA Image of the Day (space photos--I like astronomy), Weather Station (featuring regional weather radar--I like to know when there's a weather thing on the way), Current Moon Phase (the astronomy thing, again), National Geographic Picture of the Day(great photography of nature, places, and people), Aztec Calendar (hey, I'm an archaeologist), Sacred Destinations of the Day (also appeals to my archaeologist side), and Art of the Day (for the artist in me). If the NASA photo does not load, you can click on the title of the photo and it will take you to the site where you can see a larger size of the same photo. Enjoy!
I enjoy art and like to look for it in the natural world. My craft interests include handspinning and most of the fiber arts, especially knitting, weaving, and working with paper. Other important things are my family and friends, my pets, nature, literature, poetry, music, history, birding, star gazing, museums...and the list goes on. In other times and places, I've been an archaeologist, taught anthropology, and worked in a living history museum, so I find all sorts of things to hold my interest and keep me entertained. I hope to share some of these things with you.
