“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan



Just playing today. I changed the background color here because it's very close to the color of a lot of walls at my house - can't quite get there exactly, but I'm being easy today! If you don't like it, if it makes it hard to read, just drop me a line & I'll switch it back because it's so easy.

The photo above is a "sketch" for a collage/assemblage I'm working on/thinking about. It suddenly occurred to me that I could just take a picture & save it & that way I could fiddle with it some more & not have to remember where everything went. (How easy is that?) Hence the shadow across the bottom - I just laid it on the floor & took a snapshot.

And here's how the universe works. One of the main computers here at the lab has been nonfunctional (is that a word?) for 2 days. We bought a new hard drive & replaced it with no luck, but at this very moment, as I'm going on & on about how easy things are, the ever-wonderful, can-fix-anything (they don't call him Magic for nothing) Michael just popped his head in to say the computer is going. He just found another hard drive laying about somewhere (yes, that's the kind of place we have!) & lo & behold, we're back in business. Easy, huh?

    Love, me :)
