… through images for the salon at the Mary D. Fisher Theater a week from Saturday I came across some snow scenes from 2010 which I like. I think I shot this one up by the 4th tee box … just like the symmetry and the feel of a cold winter morning after a beautiful snow storm. As everyone who lives here knows our snow goes away in a matter of days and sometimes hours. I love it and we get the delight without the nastiness of knowing it will be down until spring. So a beautiful look out into the sky and the sunlight being scattered in that beautiful clean air produces a crisp blue sky acting as a curtain for all the stars and galaxies out there … at nightfall the curtain is lifted and the universe is again exposed … and we wonder at it all.
A very busy day and got most of the opal matrix cut into slabs and trimmed so that I can begin work on the diamond wheels. Some very beautiful material … fun! Getting a cabin booked on the Upper Eau Clair Lake in northern Wisconsin for October have the trip to Terra Haute booked after I leave Minnesota and a friend who is going to do the photo shoot with me sitting on the bench with the sculpture of Max Ehrmann on the 15th and it shall occur rain, snow or shine and I’ll use my cell phone as a hotspot to get an email out while sitting on the bench. Dinner with friends at the Hilton tonight and time to put a wrap on the day as I’m flying early in the morning. It is getting easier to get the sunrise shots for me as the days are getting shorter. Love this time of year.
Have a beautiful day and share a smile or three.
I’ll not bother to reform myself today.
Perhaps tomorrow — if it is raining,
and I must stay indoors, and meditate
on the shortcomings of life.
— Max Ehrmann
