A tip on storing words.....

 
I am going to tell you how I store my words, or saying's that I
find in magazines or books or whatever.  Sometimes you
just need a quote or a word or a saying.  So what I do
is every time I am looking through anything magazine, flyer whatever
I am looking for words, sayings etc.  When I see them, I cut them,
and store them in a box, and when I have enough, I glue
about 5 to 10 on a piece of paper, scan it, and store on my
computer as words to use in my art.  Then I don't have look
thru the box sorting words, I just look on my computer
for the stuff I want, cut and copy.

dreams




Have you ever had a dream that you know for sure will never ever come true, but it still nice to think about and you gives you a warm fuzzy feeling.  I will tell you mine if you tell me yours.  Okay nobody in the world knows about this so don't tell anyone.  (lol) I would love to have a cover on the New Yorker, I love the covers of that magazine, they make my heart sing.  Okay now that I have told mine, I need to know yours.

fall colours

 
You know I did this drawing ages ago, on cheap lined paper
as you can see I even used paper that had writing on it,
it was only going to be this little doodle, and it
turned out to be one of my very favourite things I have done.
Had I used great paper, and wanted to
produce something like this, it would not have happened.
Sometimes there are happy accidents.

renos

So since I have no news to impart today, I thought I would give you an update
on my renos.  You would think that a person could just go in and choose
tiles, tapes, sinks, granite etc. in just a little while.  While I am here
to dispel that myth, it takes along time.  Finally we decided on the granite, and the tile and the grout for the walls.  The man came and took a template, next we are in
the process of choosing sinks 3 and 3 sets of new taps which should be
finalized today, and then about 6 more weeks and then the work commences.
I just want it to be over and it has not started yet.  I am no decorator, so
making these choices is agony for me, wondering if I made the right choice. It
costs so much money you don't want to make a mistake.  Any way when all
is said and done I will take pictures.

Spawning in the Adams River

 
I thought I would tell you some of the
highlight's of my trip.  Now my friend wouldn't call this
a highlight, but at about 2.00 am one morning
her dog started barking, and it was a
black bear lumbering down her driveway to
the lower acreages that have fruit trees.  Her house
is the path that they take to get to the trees.  Now my
friend doesn't see that as a highlight, and If I lived
there nor would I.  The second highlight was
seeing the salmon spawning on the Adams River.
Every year the salmon whose time it is, get
like a calling to mate, and somehow when they
are swimming deep in the Ocean, they know
they have to go back to where they were
first spawned.  After they have laid there eggs
in the gravel of the Adams River they die.  They
float along the river so that the bears, deer and whatever else
can eat them, and the cycle goes on.  You are not allowed to fish
in this river while all this is happening.  Now my friend
says when its at its peak you cant see the river for all the
red salmon and the smell is awful.  We were there a few
days early,  but still a sight to see.  Ok that is my
science lecture for today.
