New View

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.
-Maori proverb


A New Year

Quiet, clouds, collage, draw. Talk to friend, Elizabeth. Email friends.
Greet the New Year with positive thoughts and aspirations.

Watch a movie, "The Secret Life of Bees"
Paint, cadmium orange, tree shadows.

Walk through barnyard with Inez. Leafy whirlwinds twirl and dance and fall.

Collard stems in compost will make garden dirt for next season.
Plant paperwhites from Marybeth in shell pot that belonged to Grandma.

Simmer mixed greens, peas, stir egg and milk into cornmeal.
Prepare traditional meal for New Years Day.
Give thanks and pray for success and prosperity in the coming year.
