On the learning curve with reproductions, grant writing, community ventures...
an artwalk in blue hill?
a community blog/calender?
art shows at the wine shop?
learning dpi, ppi, resolution, how many gigs?? cut, paste, scan, crop, adjust, sharpen, edit, delete, pdf, jpeg, tiff, head near full and spiraling...
Investment in my business..purchases to be

adobe photospop, scanner, camara, packing materials, reprints, cards, readying images for reproduction.

what happened to singing and dancing?  PAINTING?

becoming nauseated at the screen, the imperceptable flicker, the addiction to google, the "find out".
Terry Tempest Williams suggests,  "the information we value is retrieved, never internalized".

Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?   T.S. Eliot

I need to walk and pray, to sing, to breathe this moist cool salt air of maine in February, 
half snow
half rain
half thaw, half winter, half spring, 
bring some projects to the "whole"; the half done.

Gardening on February 22, ( Maine?)  good to be reminded in my body memory, of the ancient tasks...

raking leaves from last fall, cutting back my front garden, dragging all in a sheet, in a bundle over my shoulder, like a "santa", my loot for the compost, the garden, the rich soil to come.
