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

Sun Pillar Sighting
This evening while sitting outside enjoying a banana split at a local ice cream shop, I began looking for sun dogs as the sun was setting. I didn't see any, but on the way home I did get a real surprise when I spotted a sun pillar. For more information check the Atmospheric Optics site.
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.
