Time is precious.
Seeing Cloud Atlas was well worth the time invested.
Time is also relative.
It might be the fastest three hours I've ever spent.
“... in a cycle as old as tribalism, ignorance of the Other engenders fear; fear engenders hatred; hatred engenders violence; violence engenders further violence until the only "rights", the only law, are whatever is willed by the most powerful.”

Beauty in a Dangerous Wood
Start to finish photos:
Start to finish photos:
I've taken over a hundred photos. Pete has taken Orion and his friend to do boy stuff. I'm alone in a quiet house. Now to write a few words for this little frozen moment. I think my favorite part of this sculpture is that some of the leaves escaped the glass to enter our world.
Stories do that, don't they?
Hope your weekend is good. Wish me good writing.

I know I would.
It seems I know a lot of understanding humans. They tend to accept my preoccupations with good graces.
I don't forget about you. Here's some work in progress, and a sharing of my deep and growing fear for us all. I hope you're well and finding bits of wonder this October.
We knew this was coming. And now that it's here, we still don't quite believe it. We have to learn to do things differently. We can't wait for our leaders to lead us.
Things are starting to get interesting. Thanks for being, my fellow silly humans.

Now that we've adopted Pete's cat Astro, the cat total for this house stands at five.
I noticed I have bruises on both shins from recent round-the-corner collisions with said cat clutter. Their skulls are very hard. Luckily they can enjoy the fresh outdoors for most of the year. That's a lot of cats.
I'm working a lot. Really a lot, which is why you're not seeing me here. Every day starts early and ends with the singular relief of climbing into bed after a long day of hard work. But it's good work and I'm happy with it.
We continue to swim, even as late as today (for Zoya's birthday.) The water has become cold, but the sun is warm and once we adjust, it's amazingly refreshing. But the light is different. And the days are shorter, so we may be done. Sometimes I swim all year. Now I want swimming to have its season.
As soon as the last spooky poppet leaves the building, I'll be cleaning the studio to make room for new work. I'm inspired and more than ready to stretch.
This is more of a wave than deeper observation. This day started early.
I'll leave you with photos of work in progress:
Hope your October is going well.
