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

First look out the window Christmas morning.
Looking out the front door
Backseat photographer making pictures on the way to daughter's apartment on campus
Even though it continued to snow throughout the day, the streets weren't too bad, mostly just wet,
thanks to temperatures hovering right around freezing
and these hard working Alabama "snow plows"
Not many folks on campus during Christmas; all quiet at the fitness center
and even on Greek Row
Later temperatures dropped and streets began icing over. Several were closed, including I-565, Memorial Parkway, and other roads at higher elevations, but we got home just fine after a fun Christmas Day with the family on campus.
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.
