the year turned...
and a mushroom swap happened,
connecting artists all over the world
snowdrops bloomed in early spring
some new denizens of Acorn Cottage arrived
the kitchen was filled with the scent of baking
there were candied citrus cupcakes
and strange experiments were done in the kitchen...
the evening sky glowed in May
a long-awaited roof covered the front porch
Mom and I drove to the coast
three figs ripened on the front porch
my heart broke forever
a North Umpqua rafting trip shook up preconceptions
forty years ongoing,
Oregon Country Fair proved still full of creative wonders
Sauvie Island blueberries were picked
we gathered by the river
young hens arrived
my kid brother ran his first marathon
wool is always our friend
whether practical, or whimsical...
my creative friends and I do what we can.
local food is a big part of life here
and in the cold winter, at the end of a difficult year,
I am truly grateful for all the myriad gifts and blessings in my life

wishing love and light to all of you in the year to come
