It's way past Time to post again.
It's Time to start cleaning the studios.
Time to be glad that the garden is still producing.
Time to get some orders shipped and/or delivered.

If plans go right I will deliver these cards and others to the beautiful Grand Hand Gallery in St. Paul, MN, today. Their original design was drawn in the Autumn of 2001. I could not keep being sad and angry all the time after 9/11. I had to hope for some Hope. And Joy. And a wee tad of Light.

And the bears came through! Whew.

Our show season is quickly drawing down. I've decided it is more important to clean and organize the art-making spaces here than to set up an art-selling space for one day each week in coming weeks.

We do have a nice bunch of goodies available  currently at Peggy's Holiday Boutique, at the Roseville Staking Center in Roseville, MN. This event runs from Nov. 7 - 15, with long hours and convenient parking. Easy to find - right off of Lexington Avenue. It is like entering a wonderland of wonderful beautiful things, and with free fudge and tea samples to boot! WELL worth a visit or two!

We always have our work at American Gothic Antiques, 236 S. Main, Stillwater. Upstairs in our booth area is where you'll find most of our offerings, but they sell some cards and magnets at the front desk as well. This is the shop where I drew that first bear so it's always fun to point out to customers the same little brown desk I was sitting at on that October day in 1997 that eventually changed my life, and even the lives of others! The power of a few scribbled lines of furriness and text...

Daylight is starting to lift as this is being typed. A crow is crowing. The Moon and planets have disappeared for now. (They were exquisite earlier this dark morning.)

Though the Packers lost I am O.K. Haha. Teaches one to be Good at Something Oneself. And to keep trying. and to not start too slowly at getting better. I watch and do sports for real reasons.

So on to tea and the days "adventures." And cleaning off the kitchen table. Life's so Exciting here.

Thinking how quickly the years have gone by since the Edmund Fitzgerald went down in Lake Superior. Tomorrow is always a day of reflection and remembering for me. Those Fall months at a Fargo, ND horsemanship school completely changed the course of life. "Ya yust neffer know, do ya?"

On to the best day we can make it. It's the only one we've got.

Go, Pack!

Just because I haven't blogged doesn't mean I haven't THOUGHT about blogging. I've blogged in my head. Blogged while taking photographs and seeing sights.

But they don't count because they are not words typed out here.

I'll be back.
