Bits and bobs.

A good start was made on “trashing up” my Found on Beach piece.  I will do more on it before I show it again.  I’m still figuring out how to mount this piece, but I’m sure it will all work out well in the end.

Half of this past week was spent visiting a friend in Connecticut.  We had lots of fun.  Knowing someone for 40+ years makes for many shared laughs as we catch up with each other’s life.  Having friends from many years ago creates a wonderful continuity to one’s life.  Do you have friends from “long ago”?  I have a friend from back when we were both in nappies, another friend I met in pre-school, and many more from all the intervening years between then and now. 

Pennsylvania continues to have a lot of rain.  I wonder if this is the new “normal”?  I like a rainy day, so I don’t mind.  I took a few photos on one of the sunny days this past week and I’m sharing them below.  Just random things that caught my attention. 

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the company of an old friend.
