sewed in the signatures last night while sitting in perfect silence in front of the open windows at my art table. listening to street sounds and bird calls. feeling cool air drifting inside. i felt an overwhelming sense of pure contentment. making something with my hands. my mind a still uncluttered surface.
somehow the little peach tree i planted last year gave forth 8 succulent juicy sugary sweet peaches. i ate one the other evening while i was watering in the front yard. plucked that peach right off the branch and took a big bite. DELICIOUS!
i'm going to dedicate myself to taking better care of this young tree in the months to come. more regular watering, manure, mulch. it's a fruit cocktail tree, but only the peach branch put out any fruit. no nectarines yet.. maybe next year.
i am planning to eat every peach by friday. which is when i leave for norway.
if you're going with, pack a raincoat and one warm sweater. you might catch a chill when we're out exploring. i'd hate it if you got sick and i had to leave you behind in the little wooden house on the hill all by your lonesome.
more travel journal pics tomorrow.
