Bright birthday stars
and waxing gibbous moon
On Saturday I turned 66. On that gorgeous day I drove to Keene and went to three artist open studios. Check out Luann Udell's website. Her studio was magical, filled with beads, dolls, cloth, kimono, amulets made from polymer clay, wallhangings all tumbled together and collected in stacked receptacles. Her inspiration is the cave of Lascaux.
I sought out the library and found it quite large and impressive. Went to an open house, thumbs down. Bought yarn at the yarn store and books at the bookstore. Ate a box lunch in the park. I conclude that I don't care for most restaurant food. Too rich or something. But you like a meal out now and then.
And at home awaited four packages of birthday gifts mailed from friends and some chicken stew my son made for me. And a big thanks to all of you who sent me happy wishes via Facebook! All in all a wonderful day.
