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

I just noticed that yesterday's post was number 97 and got to thinking that I'll bet I forget to pay any attention to my 100th post and fail to do anything in celebration of it, just like I neglected my 1st anniversary of blogging last April--and will probably forget the 2nd anniversary this year. I'm not good at keeping up day-to-day postings. Sometimes I don't post anything for quite a while. It just depends on what is going on in my world and whether I want to take the time to sit down and write about it. I've found blogging to be a great deal of fun, but much more time-consuming than I expected. I made no New Year's resolution to post daily. However, hardly a day goes by that I don't read at least a few of the blogs I follow. A couple of family members have been encouraging me to get involved with Facebook or Twitter, but I'm not sure I want to commit to the time--since I do so well at keeping this up-to-date. At any rate, I can say that I enjoy blogging and have learned a great deal from both the experience of doing it and through reading other blogs.
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.
