New Seasons


Phil and the kids are snuggled on the sofa, reading Winnie the Pooh. Not a single one of us thought that the old book, which belonged to Phil's aunt (now in her 80's), would be of interest to any of us. Thought it was for little kids. Funny, it's been the highlight of the reading hour this week. It's great to look over, see Liv's head on Phil's shoulder, Caleb squealing in delight at the silliness of the stories, adoring the simple bumbling characters. Phil pointed out how sweet it is to read stories of friendship, and how it seems those stories aren't as popular these days.

I don't have anything new to say about art today. I spent my day cleaning my car so we can sell it, and printing pictures of family so I can update the mantle. I had a touching conversation with a dear friend who is going through immeasurable challenges, with such admirable strength. I wore a sweater and could have used a jacket on top of it. I joined 2 more networking sites, LinkedIn and Upworld, at the suggestion of the folks at the VT Arts Council, where I applied to be an artist in a great project called the Art of Action (http://www.artofaction.org). It was a hodge-podge of a day, and it's quickly come to a close. Time to close the cover of the laptop, squeeze onto the sofa with the crew, and laugh along....
