|I have been spending time with this little work in progress. I leaning toward a series of Gopis, the loving consorts of Krsna. Each possessed specific qualities offered in service to Krsna.|
Lots of painting in these parts.

Yep. That is right, I gave my naughty gnome a tattoo yesterday. I live in a funky neighborhood and this gnome has found his tribe. I was out painting in the yard yesterday and thought he needed a little something more. All hail to Gnome Moms!

I didn't say that everything I made had to be decorative. Summer arrived in the Pacific Northwest just long enough to convince a few tourists that this is the most beautiful place in the world. It rained today. But that is oaky, because we ate the most delicious dinner. You should make at least one of these three:
Handmade Tortillas-I have been making tortillas a lot lately and the has been the best recipe for me.
Basically, I just made the entire menu from Posy, with the ingredients I had on hand. Everyone was very happy.

I see so many pretty things on the internet. I am going to make some of them, just for fun. Every time I see something I like and I think I can make it, I will. I started with these...

The pots were hanging around waiting for their destiny. I picked the doilies up for a $1 at an antique store.
Stay tuned to see what I make tomorrow.

WDS is coming to Portland. Amazingly, I had the fee when the tickets went on sale. These tickets go fast! Needless to say, after floundering and floating in my career, I am coming to believe that I have what it takes to thrive and do the work I love. This is my first step. I am going to hang out with people like this! I am so lucky. And grateful for this lovely first step...

My love and I are planning a little time away. I found this sweet little cottage and am so happy to be heading north. It is months away, to ensure some sun...It is still raining here and we just needed a little light at the end of the tunnel. Xo.

in your life
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon
or the rumpled sea,
and is gone--
and how it slides again
on the other side of the world,
like a red flower
say, on a morning in early summer,
at its perfect imperial distance--
and have you ever felt for anything
such wild love--
do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough
for the pleasure
as the sun
as it warms you
or have you too
turned from this world--

Lots and lots and lots of rain in these parts. Lots. Endless. Never ending. Really. For days and days. I have been on spring break which even pisses me off more. I read a lot. I thought about doing the laundry. A lot. Did I do it? Nope. The only problem is that this is our bed when we lived in Southern California. Do you know how you can tell? Yep. The sunshine streaming in the window...that is how you can tell. No sun streaming through these Portland windows. Oh, husbandly just informed me "Oregon is reaching record rainfall for March." Well, I could have told you that. Thank goodness I love my bed so deeply.
