writing in my journal. taking note of my big plans. my sketchbook & watercolors in the little bag, but mostly i wrote.
capturing thoughts in my butterfly net and jotting them down before they flitter away.
i love reading your thoughts on places to live.
i found a house in ojai. i’m sticking it in my time machine for the next few years. ojai is a california dreamland about 40 miles north west of LA. nestled in a valley. i’ve been there before. maybe you remember the love shack.
the truth is i’m not sure if i can wrest myself away from california. but that doesn’t keep me from thinking about it. my people are here, don’t know if i could leave them.
but…totem poles, fir trees, snowy mountains, all that water. the PNW is a big draw.
thinking thinking. here we go.
i painted some more registered mail stamps.
i found a new masterpiece show – the durrells in corfu.
it’s sweet. i lived in greece when i was a toddler. went back and tried to find my old house in 2000 with my favorite greek & old friend, dimitris. it was right after 9-11. tickets were dirt cheap. greece’s currency was still the drachma, changing to the euro 1 week after i left.
here i am in greece 1964. toddling.
as usual this post is rolling all over the place.
a marble. in a big cardboard box.
roll roll roll.
