Spent these few days prepping for snow, What I can, as my eye limits me now. Indeed even more Than not having you here as for so long I have had to learn to adjust to doing As just me I have, y’know, accepted those parameters Are still close enough to notice the weight Of anything extra.
Down and back, two long days driving, Then hauling home a friends new trailer. It is fun, As was the excursion to a new place, Into a new adventure. It is cozy and I want one. Then it's just the go-go’s and I Heading down now familiar roads In first snow.
A day cool enough for flannel jeans And a walk along tom’s cove To the point Air clear and cool, tide low enough for Easy walking, wending our way where Ponies often trod. As the sun starts its descent And afternoon wanes to dusk I am both Happy for the company of friends And saddened when time comes Seeing them go.
Seven sixes ago twas a wednesday, Cold and clear. Life has cycled again To another mid-week Day of crystalline air. Standing then in The moment when afternoon light decides to Slip towards dusk, The first time living in that lucid air where You no longer were, left me terrifyingly, alone. Yet on days, Like that devastating day and like this day, The same astonishing, overwhelming clarity Suffuses the heavens, Infuses my eyes to my soul, where you Yet touch, with soft promise, with hope and I walk on.
A walk with the go-go’s on Sandy Neck Along cape cod bay, backwash through The pebbled strand. Years ago I woke each morn to that lovely sound. The go-go’s now frolic in the wave hems. I make A decision finally, To just let go and to live my own life, at last. I pick among stones, leaving one for the Kindness Rock Project
The Studio at Line's End Farm is where I paint and try to find some joy again, and some equilibrium, not simple these days. One weblog records thoughts, ideas, methods and mixtures, palettes, observations, actually anything that intrigues me concerning my painting and working in the studio. Another observes only the horse in paintings that I find influential. The last are done for my sanity. All are my opinion only, open to other suggestions.
