Now I'm Just Nutty

The squirrels leave all kinds of goodies in my yard, and this walnut shell was a find from the fall.

My neighbor had planted quite a few flowers last summer—something he hadn't done for a few years. There was a particularly lovely sunflower in a protected corner right up against his house and conveniently outside my kitchen window. I congratulated Bill on the lovely blooms, and he credited the neighborhood squirrel planting committee. They really are very talented landscape architects. Of course they're dirty, rotten thieves as well, but I suppose it all balances out.

He's Grounded

Sometimes I fall into old patterns of trying to arrange my moleskine so several pages reflect a theme. As hard as I try to be more spontaneous and carefree, it falls back to organization. Since I'm sometimes a success at spontaneity and sometime a failure, my moleskine actually possesses a signature...the blend of spontaneity and structure.

This year I took to heart some feedback I received from my former college roommate that my sketches would be ever so much more pleasant if not on ruled paper. I taped plain paper into the weekends. This particular page is on the weekend before Groundhog Day (yep, I'm a bit behind).

I have the urge to watch Caddyshack...hmmmm.

Lazy Eyes

Made me sleepy lookin' into those eyes, but I focused on keeping the pencil moving between naps and it all worked out ok.
