Sunny and Crow
am blessed with visitors! Families and friends,
young and old, come frequently. Part of me is very
social, I love company and conversations and stimulation.
BUT I can
only do art and be creative in solitude, so I must balance
my lifestyle. I put a sign on my door when I need to be alone,
and loved ones honor it.
and Ellen and dog Sunny come from Washington. Both
are on the cutting edge of their professions, and great conversationalists.
Our time together is stimulating without setting the
adrenaline a-roaring (diabetes).
is another laid-back visitor who lights up my home.
A graduate student at Wisconsin, he keeps me on my
toes with latest string theory, chaos, etc.
professor of digital imagery and photography, and son Stephen
come in the summer---also low key and heart
warming, for they fish in our pond for bass, and we eat them
for dinner. A delightful connection with my youngest
grandson, a teenager, creatively and intellectually gifted.
and Kathryn live nearby and are frequent visitors with
much interesting conversation. Mark is the computer-fixer,
art stimulator, inspirer and facilitator. He is also
my priest. Kathryn, dear kinswoman, has been my mentor for
years, helping me manage my innate wildness and even abets
it! I am blessed indeed.
