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

Goodby Little Gabby
I happened to be up about 4:00 a.m., headed into the kitchen to get some water. Matilda was making a lot of noise. On checking the bunnies, I found that Gabby was down and it wasn't looking good. She had been fine and was not showing signs of any kind of problems. She was active when I fed them their supper last night. She was an old bunny at nine years, but seemed to be going strong. I guess it was time. I wrapped her up and held her until the end.
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.
