A favorite sort of day

autumn-breezes-in-the-treetops

It is my favorite sort of day.  One which began inspired and meditative, flowing along at my own pace, following my nose in an artful way, with no lists or have-tos clouding my inner compass.

Today I have been graced with the following….

pencil-meditations

Meditation at the very tip of my pencils.

stew-on-the-stovetop

Green chili stew on my stove top.  (I don’t eat much meat, but this stew’s protein came from my friends over at Grassroots Farm.  I am so very grateful for their work.)

best-tea-in-best-mug

Many (many) mugs full of tea.  It’s fuel.

ghosts-at-the-doorstep

Ghosts at my doorstep.  It is a liminal time of year, is it not?

autumn-breezes-in-the-treetops

Cool autumnal breezes in the tree tops.  We have been afforded a most beautiful fall season.  This doesn’t happen every year.  It is a gift.

flame-on-the-windowsill

The warm glow of candlelight on my studio window.  (The gorgeous candle is by my favorite honey and wax peddlers, Bee Haven to be found locally here in Cincinnati at Findlay Market on week ends.

iris-ever-familiar

A four legged friend who is up for adventure and doesn’t talk that much.

paint-on-my-brushtip

and finally, some paint on my paint brush.  I’ve been coaxing a little painting along lately who is not so keen to tell me all of her secrets. She is to be wooed slowly it would seem.  I am giving her time and space to tell me what she knows.  We will go from there.  But this much I do know…..

she knows of the power in the flutter of a moth’s wing.  she knows she must always have a basket handy for carrying the gatherings, (though what is in her basket, I do not yet know). she spends a great deal of time outside as it tends to keep her thoughts clear.

For now, that is all.
