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

She's my sunshine on a cloudy day. When it's cold outside, she's the month of May. I guess I'd say who can make me feel this way Is my girl. Talking 'bout my girl.
(with apologies to The Temptations)
Today I think I should say a few things about my lovely daughter. She is a student at our local university. I am very proud of her. She hasn't really declared a major, yet, but is interested in chemistry and biology. She has talked about pursuing a career in biochemistry or microbiology. She is a very diligent student and her hard work is paying off with very good grades. I am inspired by her efforts and how far she has come since the day I first laid eyes on her twenty-one years ago.
This seems to be the only digital photo I can find of her high school graduation back in the spring of 2006. There must be others hiding out somewhere. If I find them, I'll try to post a few.
Here she is clowning at Ruby Falls with her boyfriend and her little bro back in the summer.
As maid of honor at a friend's wedding recently.
She's grown into a beautiful young woman and I'm very proud of her. I hope she knows how much I love her.
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.
