Leap Year!

So this year we get a bonus day!! We often feel that there are just not enough hours in the day....we get an extra 24!!! what do we do with it?? what magic can we conjure??

This is the sequence of the sun set over a period of half an hour. Such a dramatic change can happen in such a short period of time - all so stunningly beautiful. From the amazing Angel Rays to the golden yumminess of the setting sun, that orb that seems to sink over the edge of the earth, and then the afterglow!! It has charmed folk from time immemorial...a red sky at night is a shepherds delight.

We are in constant change....metamorphosizing - from a babe, to a child, to an adult and then to an OLD person!!

There is beauty in every stage of life...

Right now we have such a freedom to do what ever we feels quite powerful really...just as long as our bodies dont give out on us too soon.

So with that extra 24 hours this year I will take note of the extra things that I can do that make a difference - just show up like magic!

Hug Rugs

I am using my mothers clothes to make small memory quilts for some of my family members. This is the 1st one done!! Its for Pedar. Its quite theraputic - thinking of my mothers life while working with these fabrics - and fun to see it develop into la ittle Hug Rug.

Scout can write!!

Clever little girl....writting so intently. I'm sure we will soon be reading her stories!!

The drought has broken....after 7 years! We have almost forgotten what storms are about! The sky makes an ever changing vista of bubbling clouds. So dramatic...
Then the rain begins
...a curtain of heavy heavy rain.....and then we pass thru it....
and there is an angel!!
