Caterpillar Book Box-Book 1 - 17


Each time I scan a spread I usually have a surprise.  Part of the next page appears adding to the current page.  You can see this on the right side of this piece.

I love the softness of the shades of green.  I also am a fan of having a partial image. I love it when my eyes try to complete the image.

Sorry, I got out of order.  Happy 4th of July. Love is love.  The only ones who should care are the two in love with each other.  The Supreme Court needs to stay out of our personal lives!!!!

Caterpillar Book Box-Book 1 - 13


I know there are those out there who do not know how to occupy their time.  I have never had that problem.  In fact, I have the opposite problem….finding time to do all the things that I want.  For instance, yesterday I was helping my landlord set up for the garage sale today.  It was fun!  We would work a little and then sit and have something to drink and look at the mountains and chat away.  I am still recovering from surgery and have to take it easy.  However, doing something productive and manual was just what I needed.

A few locals stopped by to check out what was for sale.  There was an odd shaped pan that looked like a maze for sale.  Who would have thought that the purpose of this pan was to make brownies so that every cut would have the crispy edges?!!!!  Yup!  Who would have thought someone would want an old rusty corrugated iron raised bed?  Well someone did.  Today the sale officially opens and it is my hope that all these treasures for sale get taken. I think I will encourage shoplifting! :-)

Caterpillar Book Box-Book 1 - 12


I have heard many times on NPR and other media outlets how black parents have to teach their sons how to protect themselves in a world where just because of their skin color they could be suspect.  They have to teach their sons that what they wear might make them suspect.  They have to teach their sons not to wear hoodies.  Or not to put your hands in your pocket if stopped by the police. Just think about that…they have to teach their sons that their skin color can make them suspect, something that no one has control over.  Skin color.  So yes, jogging can be dangerous if you are black.  Just ask the family of Ahmaund Arbery.

If you are a collage artist you see ephemera everywhere you turn.  In my case, I found it at Costco.  Yup! Do you know what piece of paper I am talking about?  It is the white circles and blue-green centers.  I scanned it off a Kleenex box.
