I am very fond of snails.
Wednesday Morning, 6am in Los Angeles.
I recorded a two-minute video of this snail commuting across the sidewalk (with cars speeding by in the background) but I am having difficulty uploading it. But you probably have other things to do with the two minutes it would take you to watch it...
I woke up at 2:30 am, and was unable to go back to sleep. Serves me right for trying to go to bed early.
I've been drawing all morning, and noting how I breathe differently when I draw. It is nice. I like the drawing-breathing.
I have overhauled my studio, and am quite organized at the moment, and have a plan. Well, a few plans.
I also have a stack of pieces I intend to share on this blog and on Etsy...quite soon.
Yesterday I planted some seeds, including "moonlight" nasturtiums and "flying saucer" morning glorys. (glories, maybe?) I have an outer space-y garden.
My plan for the morning is to walk over the 5, over the River to Atwater Village. I'm going to have breakfast at the Village Bakery (I have only tried their scones, and their scones were acceptably yummy.) Then I will work a shift at Sante D'Or Animal Rescue, with my lady Sabrina and the gang.
In conclusion: snails, drawings, breathing, outer-space flowers, cats, bunnies, scones, and coffee.
I have no particular complaints today.
