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

At Burritt Museum on Thursday afternoon I saw this Tiger Swallowtail enjoying the butterfly bush. This fellow was really hard to photograph. It just would not be still. Using the cell phone because it was a surprise sighting and, naturally, the phone was the only photographic device I had at the moment. I never got a good shot, so this is the best of the worst.
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.
