We're having a heatwave on the North Coast. It's already 79 degrees in Fortuna (up at the little airport near where I live) and it's not yet 10am. Going for 89 today. That's REALLY hot for here. I've already got all the windows open and two fans set on high.
I'm working on a painting project that's been on the back burner for a year. Finally, on Monday, I jumped right into it. Will post on Sunday.
My intention is to paint more. Because why not? What am I waiting for? Metaphor for life, of course.
But today I'm having myself a "theater party," watching Malcolm X on DVD. When I requested it from Netflix, I had no idea (read: didn't remember) that it runs over three hours. I plan to sit in the cool dark and watch it today.
Just saw a hawk fly by overhead. One of my neighbors is quite the birder and has been pointing out just how many different birds we have here. I love birds. But between you and me, except for the big, obvious ones (ravens, hawks, turkey vultures, egrets), the little ones all look alike to me as they whiz by. Said neighbor has a camera with 30x zoom and she's been delighting me with images of more birds than I can name at the moment. All beautiful.
And speaking of birds...I've got a new zine in the works, featuring bird stamps from around the world.
Enjoy the rest of the week. xx
