Beau presented his side of the trip reasonably well. Right now he’s asleep on the floor at my side. His name should be Shadow – everywhere I go, he is right there. It would be great if I could take him on all my teaching trips! Next week, I will be in Regina SK, CA and he will have to stay with “the girls” for a few days. they like him and take good care, but it won’t be like home.
I picked up my replacement car yesterday. It is almost exactly like the one that was totaled on 4/29. A little newer but same model with the same features (the console is different, it doesn’t tell me which direction I’m going <G>) When I returned the rental car I had to deal with the windshield damage (probably from road construction) the paperwork for that will be almost as bad as all the medical paperwork – an ongoing hassle. I’ve been driving for 40 years. This is the first auto accident I’ve been in where I was the driver. It is not an experience I want to repeat.
Here are some of the things I paid attention to while traveling:
textures of bark and lichen
the play of light with all the wonderful greens
now I’m off to the studio to begin the unpacking/re-packing process and to gather a grouping of small pieces for a client to select from.
If you have a Holiday this weekend, enjoy!
