new bone has formed, even over the screws.
We saw the x-ray.
The entire day yesterday was spent in the car going to and from doctor.
We left at 9 am, home 10 pm.
Ned went straight to bed - me too, but I got up to clean the studio.
I arranged the red edged hankies into a cross
for a prayer flag

A philosophy and aesthetic that honours the imperfect, the transitory, the humble and the handmade.
It honours the changes of nature, seasons, objects and ourselves.
It evokes a sense of acceptance of the transitory nature of life.

Circles are so easy to draw when you start from the center.
I wonder if that is why they are said to represent the self. Because, just by slowly going, moving your body or moving the paper under your hand, you can make a perfect circle.
A spider makes a web from the center and then stretches out to the outside and makes spoke that join it to the center. Then she goes back and joins the spokes. Is this how I wonder?
Then on the Bruce penninsula, the beautiful firm barns Several with small lines of red wooden shut windows along the top edge, one with a great red wooden double door. Some with diamond shaped windows. Dark barn wood. And then the dots in the fields. Black cattle - perfect against the green, and the scattered rolls of hay.
