Mr and Mrs T ( over 30 years old) and their two young 3 year olds are up from hibernation. These tortoises live in Vermont with my sister so I am thinking it is a very good sign………..(Note: I have known them all these many many years and I have to say they are extremely personable, friendly and responsive – quite smart and always a good time.)

During the snow days I am planning ahead for the mud days. This is Pixi our Border Collie. I trained her on the command feet to get into her foot bath so she will be clean to enter the house when all there is is mud in the yard. It will be filled with nice warm water then as we have installed a hot and cold water spigot on the deck.

Bound in white. Bound in time and space. Yet each constriction seems to allow a more expanded creative journey. A little web in the upper back hall that hangs just so, just below the north window in the spare room a pink sweater has fallen on an old brown box, next to the table at the top of the stairs the thin light picks out the faint blue and silver of a long forgotten stuffed animal. Inspiration flows from every tiny space – burnt orange and swamp green, black lines on old chalky white, the dog tucked in a perfect oval on the red chair. The elegance of the two toned enameled pie plate is one I wish to duplicate on a copper woman totem. This space grows and expands by the day. Home travel. The back corners of the old corner cupboard are as compelling as any unknown continent.
When these spaces and objects are intimately experienced something palpable begins to flow out and seep in. While still up at the back end of the hall I am sent elsewhere. Now fully engaged in my own creativity I am completely unbound.
