FELLOW DETAINEES…which according to the dictionary we are not Detainees because we are not being held for questioning nor for political reasons…well most of us aren’t…lol
Its hard to suddenly find ourselves being told to wear masks , stay at home, and even if we don’t stay at home most things have been closed… but they are starting to open a little and what is really hard is to realize that this, while it affords us time to play, read, and just sit and breathe..it not really LIVING…its just surviving and trying to help others survive.
Its hard on everyone and I just discovered that keeping my self distracted by doing things I have not done before and maybe not doing so well is a good choice…so I am going to share two different Calligrapher’s who are teaching via ZOOM if you don’t know about ZOOM it is very easy and its also fun…not the same fun you would have if you actually took the class because you miss out on the creative energy that one gets in a class..
but I am going to post this quick because one of them happens tomorrow thru Wednesday and that is JULIE WILDMAN’S FUNKY LETTERS… AND ITS NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP…. HERE IS THE INFO
I took Julie’s first class VARIATIONS ON AKIM and it was great fun and I am still playing and trying to improve my swoops…so I am looking forward to this class as well since it looks like lots of fun too.
The next class in on the 17TH and its taught by AMITY PARKS…and its all about the BISTER INKS..and tools etc… i have signed up for it as well and really looking forward to more discoveries.
sorry I am late with these but I started cleaning out files and you know what happens when you do that..and since many of my fellow detainees are calligraphers I thought and hope that you have seen about these classes thru another source…
this Clematis is from my back yard in WA…and was sent to me by my neighbor/friend Shannon as was this image of my Red-hot poker…
The rest of these are from my friend in Chehalis Craig… he has lovely flowers.
Hope you are all staying well and that your worlds are slowing coming back into focus..
AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY…..wireheaded cyber toad aka kath
