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.
