An Artist’s Raw Material

Today, I was energized at Chris Edmonds' fabric art studio. Her system for displaying threads caught my eye. She threads her interests into wall hanging pieces that reflect a train of thoughtfulness toward Nature. Chris exudes a wonderfully generous, creative spirit. The ground hog saw his shadow today, so we are in for it. Looks like I'll have time to . . . .

J and S Coffee Shop

O.K., so I'll do my best to step up, Mollyavalon. I will miss your posts, but I understand the blue-blah feeling from this weather. Just call me Sister No Blues. Pressure's on now. I stopped here for a coffee this afternoon with a friend for my birthday drink. There must be a math error somewhere in this universe. I can't be 60. I will ignore it, and power on. The palm tree reminded me of warmer days, and the smell of hot coffee and chocolate tasted even better.

Star Power

I haven't seen icicles like this for a long time. They were beautiful to look at, but I wouldn't want to get hit in the head by one. This was taken at Jackie and Gregg's on Massachusetts Street yesterday. That star acted as a prism and cast rainbows throughout the kitchen.

Downhill Skiing???

Future Man, by our young sculptor friend, Andrew Hadl, looks as if he is skiing. In Kansas? The winter landscape is still with us. The temperature will drop to 0 degrees tonight, and we will be in the sauna for the last time in 2009. Cedar Stars will be awarded to those who exhibit extreme valor in the sauna beyond all common sense.
