Snow day!!!

10 Mar

So last Wednesday we had a couple of inches of the fluffy stuff fall very quickly overnight. So the next day was declared an official snow day!! ( by me ) Those awesome little winter surprises that make the normally dreary and unbearably cold weather and lack of sun tolerable for at least a moment. And just as I did when I was a kid, I got all bundled up to go outside and play!! Here are some of the pictures I took.

IMG_1920The branches were so heavy with snow.

 

IMG_1928The snow weighed this tree down until it looked like a completely different tree.

IMG_1947One poor little branch drowning in the snow, reaching up to stay above the surface.

IMG_1951We are lucky to have a variety of trees around our house, like this funny little crooked one.

IMG_1971This made me wonder why one tree was naked and the other covered in a beautiful snowy outfit?

IMG_1980Hopefully these are the first of many marks that I make in the world to make it a better place through art and expression.

Birthday Eve

23 Feb

ScannedImage

So it is the eve of yet another one of my birthdays. I try to get excited about them but it is hard. And I think it is hard for a lot of other people too. You start to feel older and see what you haven’t accomplished with the time you have spent here on Earth. I wish birthdays could stay the way they were when I was a kid. I got lots of cards in the mail. And it wasn’t about the gifts it was about the surprises. Like on my sweet 16, I woke up to my bed covered in streamers and confetti. I mean just look how obviously happy I was in that picture, even rocking every single bad 80’s cliché in the book. And now I haven’t gotten one card and there won’t be any surprises to look forward to tomorrow. I wish there was a way to celebrate birthdays like I was still a kid, and then maybe me and a few other people who dread getting older might not be so adverse to birthdays.
