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

It's Always Something
Yesterday, cold and rainy, the heating unit died. Called the repair guy. Won't come until the rain stops. Probably today. He called this morning. New unit is in the works, but not until the big boss comes out and looks things over to give the final verdict and estimate. Probably have it in by the end of the week. Gee. Just as we go into a cold spell. Currently 38 degrees outside and 56 inside. Might have to break out a space heater.
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.
