A few weeks before Christmas while cleaning out the storage area under the house in preparation for a new furnace and some asbestos removal work, I found this long neglected print.
The artist, a childhood friend, called it “The Music of the Spheres.” It dates back to a time, when young, we both gave unconditionally of ourselves and our work, fully expecting that the universe always made right the innocent. And it does, although not in the ways we expect. I framed the print and it sits on the piano. A good start to a New Year, making right at least one of the treasures cruelly hidden in storage.
I rarely post pictures of my family but here, for Norm’s Thursday Doors is my favorite picture from Christmas. This little critter likes to slam doors in the faces of his elders. I suspect he will find many fine doors to slam in his lifetime.
He sometimes gets along with this damsel of the neon lockes.
But she’s rapidly approaching the teenage years. Oh my. Enjoy – I tell the parents because the sun sets on everything. Every year and every innocent friendship of youth.
Above, the last sunset of 2019 reflected in the window of a mobile home in a state park accessible to all.
Reflected in the wall of a gated community just across the street.
Looking up as the sky grew dark.
I hope this next year you uncover many hidden treasures, bring them to the light and enjoy them.
