happy list

sunflowers, heavy and bright, uplifting


dragonflies

lovely iridescent glowing, being okay with just sitting awhile

bubble bath

time to just soak, think of nothing, or maybe page through a magazine full of glorious colors

kittens

nearly always way too cute when sleeping

quilts

both old and modern, my stash of threads and fabrics, creatively dreaming, making gifts of warmth, remembrance to come

orange

gentle rain and good chair

old books

I’m trying to be ruthless, even so I don’t find too many books making it to the pile for the used book store.

new journal and old fountain pens

June is nearly over. The humidity and the heat are steadily increasing. I find myself spending more time in my studio, writing and watching the hummingbirds from the window.
