My hair is wet
my house in a state of lady-less-ness
(tufts of fur in corners, studio plants calling for water like desert soldiers)
I am here, and full of the warmth and humidity of Florida!
I thought today of those silly t-shirts from my childhood that said things like "I went to _________ and all I got was this lousy t-shirt"....
(do they still make things like that?)
because I took nary a single picture of a single beautiful thing
I chuckle to myself and think,
"I went to Florida and all I got was this lousy state of bliss!"
I sang The Lord's Prayer as my girlfriend Chris got married to her incredible husband Daniel
stayed up late
talked for hours on end to my sister-friend Amy Mc
made a lot of new friends
spent time with my Uncle (a delightful rascal)
his wife (amazing)
my cousin, his beautiful wife and their boys
(devout Christians passionate about their wonderful missionary work)
felt my very chest would puff out from my heart growing three sizes too big
wondered at the Spanish Moss
In the airport last night I was approached by a beautiful reader who held up her hand and showed me her dainty, elegant size 3-5 fingers!
It reminded me that I need to remember the wee of finger and the delicate of size
as well as the middle of finger (not to be confused with the actual middle finger)
and the generous of digit.
I am going to go peruse
go to Whole Foods
and make something fantastic.
I'll meander back to the studio later this week after I come back to California body AND soul
to make some beautiful pieces.
I missed you all: won't you tell me what you've been up to this past week?
