{this moment}

A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Time to Make Art

Behind, behind, behind, behind...

Sorry for all this talk about my behind problems, but I just cannot seem to catch up. I appreciate that falling behind in a blog is hardly cause for real distress. However. I really do want to share our day in Pasadena, the trebuchet event, graduation, more of Maker Faire, immediate plans for something we are calling Candlelight, Biergarten fun, and just some general newsy-family-musings.

Naturally, since I am behind, and overwhelmed, I decided to make a party! Makes sense right? Sarah TickyTavi painted a dear little portrait of this jolly sir, Alex. Suddenly, I want to play, too! I want to be a romantic plein air painter, I want to fill the garden with fellow amateurs who cannot help making, for the love of making. Never mind skills or technique, with such teeny canvases and our mutual encouragement we can all release our inner naturalists and expressionists!

Sigh. I may never catch up with my behind. No matter. The sky is blue, the day is long, summer is nigh, and there are good things waiting to be enjoyed.
