Summer country weekends have a comforting sameness.
I check on the frogs, go wading, spend long periods of time looking
at rocks, water, moss, ferns and wildflowers, and whatever else
comes my way. Tiny lizards, lichen, wild turkeys,
a great heron.
There are friends to visit, jaunts to galleries, used books stores,
favorite places and events. The county fair! The cauliflower festival!
Of course there are chores and a house to maintain,
but I always opt for r&r&r
relaxation, refreshment, recreation, because otherwise
what is the point of a four-hour drive to a country house?
Here is something new and green, growing out of the trunk
of a fallen tree.
I'm starting a new blog, focussing on art and books, painting and writing.
Word is that people are reading fewer blogs these days,
but there are places I want to explore, to go narrower and deeper than I do here.
I expect to continue to post here once a week or so.
No sudden moves.
The new blog is Orchards in Space.
