But the day went on. We went for a walk up at Penland, which is so so so splendidly quiet this time of year. Everything there is crunchy and dry and pale, but the sky today was clear and vivid blue.
And there were snowdrops, and a few crocuses.
I understand that this has been a very mild winter thus far. This past week it was in the 50s during the day, which is bananas. Honestly I would rather have snow now than March. Come on, winter. Try harder.
I've been working on studio organization and getting rid of things I can't look at anymore.
Didn't I do that before I moved? Yes. But there is always more to move around and sort and let go.

I'm also getting ready to do some PRINTING in the next few weeks, as I will be a winter-renter in the Printmaking studio at Penland. I have some big etching plates, some little shaped etching plates, some pronto plates, and NOTHING BUT TIME.
If I can muster up some motivation, I think some good things may happen. Soon.
