Cool breeze of morning, truck stocked for a full day of photography, on my way first to a farm by the bay, where a designer awaits with her new line to model, excited about the settings we will find.
Cat napping after a nice meal, taking the day at a more easy going pace than originally planned (more time photographing fashion on the farm - continuing after a break, missing the warehouse in Baltimore, but still on track to touch base with faeries before the speakeasy).
Cold outside, but warm inside with fire roaring in the wood burning stove, dry split maple from the trees we watched grow but which towered over the house and had to come down. Tea steeping in the kitchen in a big mug. I’ll add honey and cream. Tomorrow, filming parades inside with Boomtown Hoops, whom I met first at the Maryland Faerie Festival in May - such good people and wonderful hoopers.
I have not even been on Twitter much, only Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/yenra
Yet I still plan to come back and fill in the gaps in my journal - so many notebooks to transcribe.
My daughter is a finalist in the 2010 Art of Dairy contest. Attached is the press release for a meet-the-artist event.

Preparing my next Bookshare scan: Bitter Lemons by Lawrence Durrell - an impressionistic study of the moods and atmospheres of Cyprus from 1953 to 1954. Durrell is a residence writer who paints intense word portraits and landscapes. First words of this book: “Journeys, like artists, are born and not made. A thousand differing circumstances contribute to them, few of them willed or determined by the will–whatever we may think. They flower spontaneously out of the demands of our natures–and the best of them will lead us not only outwards in space, but inwards as as well. Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection. These thoughts belong to Venice at dawn, seen from the deck of the ship which is to carry me down through the islands to Cyprus.”
Trying the ones that deal with the suppression of all but one color range. Applying them to photos taken at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Finding out what the world looks like one color at a time.
