I was out of it yesterday and the blog post got started but never finished. There are other times during my Pyrenees weekends (low point in my chemo cycle) when the blog hasn’t gotten out. I don’t feel right when the post doesn’t go out, I’m not doing my metronome thing. Sorry about that.
And I have to be sorry about yesterday in another way. I just couldn’t get excited about the big march “everywhere”. I’m just not a protester at heart I guess. It’s not that I don’t feel for people but it just isn’t moving me. Sorry about that again. The pic that Karen Fuller took of the blue heron in the sunrise looks exactly like how I feel. It’s me in the pic really, here on Vashon. Karen is a Caminohead from way back, from before I ever knew about it. Thank you Karen for the great shot. I owe you a glass of wine.
Well as long as we are talking art by lovely ladies let’s include this painting of the passion flower that Jane Valencia just completed. I think the right term is illustration really, anyway it is beautiful. And down right meaningful as Jane is an herbalist amongst other things and she uses passion flower in that work. I’m recruiting her to be a member of the Hildegard Sisters whenever I figure out exactly what that means.
I love illustrations and illustrators. Norman Rockwell and John James Audubon the bird guy were illustrators. Somehow in my mind the art is similiar to documentary in the film world. It’s very attached to reality.
Anyway, OK, there are two Vashon ladies that I am featuring today. OK, let’s go for three. Here is a pic of My Rebecca’s latest critter:
Rebecca creates with needle felting portraits of people’s pets that have passed away. They provide photos and she recreates the creature in three dimensions. People love them.
So, OK, have I made up a little bit for my lack of enthusiasm yesterday? I hope so. If so I am going to celebrate with a little wine for breakfast. There, that’s a first. Well, there it is for today. Always thinking of you and praying for you and yours, you’re beautiful, love, Felipe.
