Another quiet Sunday.
The only other two occupants of the house are my son and his best friend (home from college). They pulled an all-nighter on the computer and are now gently snoring under piles of blankets. What a good feeling. I’ve missed having the two of them together on the weekend. Kids grow up and we can’t go back, but we can have brief interludes of the old days every now and again. Whenever they wake up, I’ll cook breakfast and hold on to the memory – of today and all the other breakfast meals we have shared.
It’s raining and I’m not complaining. We really do need the rain. I choose to live here – in the land of all or nothing. Drought or flood. That’s just the way it is. My chickens on the other hand – they are complaining. They’ve had enough of the rain, the drips, the wind and the chill. We’ve hooked up the warming light for them. They venture out of a snack, squawk, ruffle their feathers and huddle back together under the warmth of the light in the coop. They are so cranky that they are refusing to cooperate and take a decent photo. Usually they smile and “ham” it up for the camera. Not today.
And the focus of the day. The studio…
Sigh… I know. It’s more of a storage room right now. Storage for materials, supplies, possibilities, and ideas. Those things are important to have, but basically useless without a workable environment to utilize them. I’d like to be making art, but first I’d better make room.
No doubt, I will find five things to declutter from this space today. Wish me luck!
