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

I have decided to extend the deadline for entering my 100th Post Contest to February 28 in order to try to get a few more entrants. Okay, come on, y'all, get those comments in. You know you want to win a delightful mystery prize made by yours truly. I still haven't decided what it will be, but there's a good chance it might be a lovely creation like the lady in the photo above is wearing.
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.
