i need to get more specific, but this much so far from an Email from Maria:
"the rag on the right side of the seat, a piece of linen trousers with purple dahlia
the square in the middle with blackberries
the right yellow with meadow sweet and fern, pounded...neither Maria or me remember the correct word in the moment
the red one, a big lot of gladiolas, bundled, steamed and put in glass jar covered, sit in Sun for a few days.
as i said. i have specific Wonderings. Soon.
double running back stitched a lot. and some thread beads. and invisible basted down the Imaginal Things with a single invisible baste....just to SEE. I felt Extremely Good doing these things.
some change. Last night was COLD. This morning there was a sheer glaze of ice on the Goat water, but still, we Go. I ASKED this plant if i could
Touch it...i will say IT because i don't know any better, it, i asked and the plant said yes. i did. I put my fingers on the "stem".
the angle of the Sun is rapidly changing and late day it illuminated Patricia's First Iris that is on the wall just to the right of me as i peck away on this keyboard. This pic does not do it justice...the edges were luminous
and in the interests of Full Disclosure,
behind that Oval Frame is this. It's an electrical outlet. A Few times different people have looked at it and been mystified by it...the outlet cover has been long gone. And maybe 2 years ago i covered it with this duct tape because of mice. Well, this is the Year of the Mouse again. Sometimes they get caught in my Tin Cat mouse trap, and driven a ways down the road and set free, but almost everynight, another one(s) are busy here and since cat Tazmeena has retired, i am not sure what to do. But last night i had left a pork chop bone on the counter. During the night maybe around 2 A.M. there were very LOUD sounds and i lie there in bed thinking something much Bigger than a mouse must have found its way in. It continued. So i got up and crept and listened and YES it was from behind that Oval Frame and i flicked on the light and there....the pork chop bone. Having been dragged really far for a mouse. Far and it was half way pulled under the bottom part of the duct tape...
