Jane posted a photograph of her beautiful new collage.
I guess life is always a collage, scraps and snippets colliding to become something new, moments arriving and going away, people connecting. I know, that seems obvious. But sometimes, it's a celebration. Sometimes, it's overwhelming. And lately, it's been careening back and forth between the two extremes.
A bit about what's been happening around here:
FSA Grand Prix bicycle races. A lot of cheering from the sidelines.
An acceptance from Painted Bride Quarterly!
Tom's birthday dinner. Four courses, including gnocchi!
A romantic Saturday lunch at Place Pigalle, and an intriguing conversation about a painting. Weekend birthdays last all weekend.
Deadlines at work. A crazy Friday.
Shooting down the street from poetry group last Wednesday. The definition of tragedy, senseless, loss.
And now we're in a heat wave.
How is the summer treating you?
