The lake has been a delicious retreat after managing hearth and coop. Even more delicious after paperwork and painting. I'm not huge on swimming, but I'll bob with a styrofoam floaty noodle ~ just drifting on the current, marveling at sky and mountain, enjoying the calm surface. Being in the lake is a great source of rejuvenation for me. It's early in the summer vacation, but there are also plans for a day at the gazebo with watercolors and pens and a packed lunch.
Today was spent getting more Fangirl fun done. Bennie has been involved in deeply detailed collage work while I've been ripping and tearing and making a general mess. My other project is playing with Numinous Jane's offering through 21 Secrets where one spends time with one's Inner Child. I found photos of me as a child and am now playing with the ways they can be incorporated into the altered book journal spread painted earlier. Then I will have a conversation with these images, these little people that are me.
