910 and counting

Hi everyone. Wow I'm 90 blogs away from
1000 entries -- and I'm pretty proud of my productivity.
What a marvellous and exciting experience it's
been writing almost every day (with just over a
month off total). It is for sure my touchstone
with the art world -- a life line that keeps me
informed and keeps me learning -- about you.

It has been a beautiful day here, and I took the
dog for a walk as the last of today's miraculous
light was disappearing behind the dark
silhouettes of trees in the park. The
air was crisp and cool -- the dog and I happy
in the inexplicable way that can overcome
you when you're out in nature, and she reveals
something magnificent. People walking dogs
energized by the air, bird calls for the end of day,
white clouds gilded on the under side against blue sky.
Suddenly the sky forms the palest translucent gold,
canopy, then poof azure from nowhere and a dusting
of stars.

Have a loving-what-you-see-before-you day.

I looked to see how many posts I've done. Pretty pitiful compared to 1000. Oh well, I keep saying I'm going to get back at it any time now. LOL. Cross your fingers.

Hi Eldon,

I think there's a lot to be said both for blogging and not blogging. You'll get back at it when you can. I do love your blog.

Take care,

Barbara

Hi Laurel,

Thank you. Now you're scaring me. Do? What should I do? That's about three months away by my reckoning -- almost New Year's. Huh! Well now.

XOXOXOXOXOXBarbara

Hi Eldon,

How do we do that? Maybe you can do the research. What a great idea!

Ciao,

Barbara
