Sitting? Did I really think I would be SITTING this weekend?

We're back from the Colorado Art Ranch "Dinner Stories" Artposium, happy, enlightened, and exhausted, as usual. Probably more photos will trickle out in the next few days (in one of our workshops the DM and I pressed grapes and bottled wine, and a friend just told me he has pix of us in action), but for now here's an image of our group in the pear trees at New Leaf Orchard.

We spent a morning of autumnal perfection with poet and organic fruit grower Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, reading poems, writing poems, and eating juice-dripping pears that we picked up off the ground as we rambled. (contented sigh) No time for drawing, sadly, but a fine, fine morning nonetheless.

It was warp speed in to the new week this morning, and only now that the sun has set will I finally get to figure out what's on task for the next few days. Weather report calls for chilly and wet again mid-week, so it looks as if tomorrow will be all about cramming as much outdoor time as possible in to whatever needs to be accomplished.


  1. It's lovely to think of you poeming with Rosemerry and eating those heavenly ripe pear drops.... O, happy day!

    Tomorrow's the neuro consult, so perhaps we'll have news from the battery of tests by tomorrow night. I'm worn out with waiting and city and rush and traffic. Home Thursday, and I can't wait!

  2. Sounds like you had a yummy time!

  3. Hi Susans Both! Yes, yummy time in more ways than one! Glad the T-C clan is on its way home, and hope the G-T clan is enjoying a fine autumn where they are!
