Surprise mail..Dear Michelle, thank you.
|everyone should love letters|
A fantastic, snowy, late night Wednesday walk.
|snowy night walks|
Sometimes I wish you'd leave me alone.
|I like to think that this house has an amazing library and consumes lots of hot chocolate|
This morning at 4:28 (because I checked the time), I woke up from the strangest dream.
I was in a Cypress swamp and it was mid summer:
|sort of like this.|
National Geographic had just highlighted three new fish species in their "Weird from 2010" and it just so happened that all of them lived in this swamp where I was floating. So, as I was lying there, surrounded by algae and cypress knees, someone standing on the dock (who I never saw) kept chucking fish (yes, the new, famous three) onto my "float".
I didn't seem to mind, as I remember laughing as each fish, one at a time, flew over the edge of the dock and landed next to me. It felt like a game.
So I'd pick each fish up, look at its face, then toss it into the water.
And now I'm annoyed because when I checked the clock at 4:28 and retold the story to myself, I had the clearest image of one of these fish. It was emerald green, slimy (of course), had a fat belly, and its face was long and thin, and it just stared at me with the most void, blank expression.
Anyway, I was going to get up and draw it, because it was so vivid in my mind, but I didn't, promising myself that I'd remember...
I think there's a lesson there.
I think I need to get out of my attic.
I think today is not another all day book making day..
