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

Sun Halo 05/07/2011
Sitting on the front porch spinning today. The sky is a bit hazy. I looked up a few minutes ago (about 1:45 CDT), saw this halo around the sun and made a few photos. Here are a couple. The dark area at the top of the first photo is the edge of the roof.
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.
