I’m reading Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander/time travel series again. I find it wonderfully engaging, again. The first 4 probably 4x now over the years, bk 5 3x, bk 6 twice, then on to the 7th and final one. The depth and description of the historical details is fabulous. Political, personal, daily life conditions, inter-personal relationships, romantic episodes, sexuality, violence of course, intrigue, all juicy and each time it draws me deep into the story. For me, it seems to be the perfect escape tool these last couple of months.
Fine beadwork is back in front of me also. After finishing the big sphere, previously published I’m working another project that is really pleasing to me. Winding new thread balls also to begin with Temari. Have you been watching the moon and Jupiter/Venus this month? It feels very cool to me to sit at the shore here and watch them together, close, in the twilight sky. Of course catching a fly by of the Space Station is quite cool as well.
So, this sphere above is called “Mouthing Off”. Various mouths appear in all directions with YES sprinkled around. 14” diameter, sewn and Painted, stuffed with Bison Hair. Fun and silly, perhaps some loud and cynical, uncertain expressions coming you.
Listening to Candy Dulfer jazz, great saxophone, mellow and sweet.
Gosh, now that I have a list of cool things lined up here that describe how my days are here, it’s time to planet gaze again. jT
