Stay obsessed by what you love...........

______Days are full and as much as I try to keep order, I find less time to write about it. The seasons change and sounds of the birds in early morning make me long to show through my work how this makes me feel. I hope that my design work will bring some of that to the fore. Someone said, "Do what you know, do what you love".
I only wish.
There are many ways to put nature in the work we all do. That is my guiding inspiration and a way to leave a part of myself in this beautiful world.______

Day after ....

It has been an interesting election so far. Last night I saw this happen and it made me feel especially good about my choice, not only because this is a brilliant man who will lead this country honestly but he is good and kind.
McCain was attempting to say Ahmadinejad, and after a few stumbles, quietly and  nicely, Obama said "That's a tough one".  John McCain, who still refused to look at Obama,  gave a nasty sneer. 
 McCain was condescending and rude the entire night. One only wonders how he treats his wife in private. Oh, I forgot we already know.
This is my last blog here until after the election. See my political blog instead.  Tickseed

Happy birthday Jenny! Love you sweetie.

I wish that I could somehow see if seeing something beautiful would change McCain into a decent human being. He certainly tried to pull a fast one on the Democrats today. Finally, the Democrats have a brilliant man running for president and a campaign that is smart too.
My new tank top came today..".Obama 08 This time I want a smart president" . I will wear it a lot. Got it from Cafepress.

storm rolls in at sunset .....

This election is making me want to sit and look at God's landscape a lot more than dealing with people. I am so fortunate that I have so many smart women around me.
When I am in Colorado I have this view and I have a group of artists who understand that this world must be for everyone, not just the privileged.
....and now I am about to go back to Atlanta, a state that unfortunately may go to McCain but I have my daughter's there. They strive to be good and caring to all mankind. They work hard and make the right things important. I'm a lucky soul.

This beautiful park in Ridgway. The grass seems greener than anywhere else and the small town feel is enough to make you stay here forever. Sitting and dreaming and feeling the cool breeze of autumn on your skin.

What a pooch! Still one of my favorite models for TtV's.

evening by the bench .. ttv .....

We've been here in Ridgway for over a month. I feel at home and we are settling in differently this summer. I think because we stayed for over a month in June and part of July, we were able to just slip back into "being at home" when we got back in early August. We have a nice garden and our little house is cozy and warm....although the chill winds are blowing and the leaves are touched with gold.
