Just finished my BOD 2016 Journal Page 2. Moving like a snail. I am taking 3 online classes all at one time. Not a real smart move on my part, but the ones I was interested in were all being offered now. Thankfully, the videos will stay online for quite some time which will give me time to catch up at my own pace. If only I could stay in my studio 24/7.
Sunday's blog post, "Foggy Sunday", was posted on my facebook page as well, and there were many likes and comments. I love this tree. It is in my backyard and towers high. Our screened-in deck is right next to the tree and we can easily see the birds come and go. My brother, Patrick, called our deck "the birdcage". The deck is high and near the top of the tree, so when he was on the deck, he felt like he was IN the tree. When I sit out there at night, I can see a lot of the sky with the stars and the moon. Planes fly by often in the distance. I find it to be inspirational out there and I feel very blessed to have this large tree in my yard.
Fallen tree from ice storm the other day ~ just hanging up there leaning on the power lines. It was creepy driving under it, but we had no choice ~ it is the only way out. Thankfully, it was removed yesterday.
This is my front sidewalk after midnight last night once the rain started to fall and then freeze. The scene this morning is a white sparkling wonderland of glistening ice on everything. It is melting, but there are power lines and branches down all over the Roanoke Valley. A lot of roads are closed.
I must venture out later as I have a DDS appointment. They called me to tell me they are open so I am not getting out of having an old cracked filling replaced with new.
Book of Days has always been a 12 week class led by Effy Wild of Wild Soul Arts. This year, she has extended the class into a YEAR of intentional creativity. I started taking Effy's BOD classes in 2012 and have a good number of art journals in various stages of being incomplete. My "hope" is to keep at it this year and hold a completed BOD journal in my hands at the end of 2016.
