Psychiatrists and neurologists like tell us that if we can end fill our days with gratitude, we will find more and more to be grateful for. These days, I have plenty to be grateful for. Each morning brings around 20 blueberries and marrionberries for my picking pleasure. Birds are singing, and the kale is high. After baking a cherry pie earlier this week, I spent much of today gardening, enjoying the sunshine. I love working outside, especially when Billy is around too. Being creative with someone you love is magical, especially in a backyard like ours.

This video is from last night, and shows how Billy has moved at least a part of his art studio up from the basement and into the patio-garden area. This painting has already progressed quite a bit since this clip-- now, stripes of blue tape cover up what he wants to keep, and the major elements of the painting--I see a face, a fence, and a bird--are coming forward. I love living with an artist.

  1. I haven't seen my son in a couple years, so this clip is simply wonderful!!!!!!! I've always loved the artist too. Did I glimpse a full moon? Is this area protected from the rain? I can't tell, but the garden area sure looks warm, friendly and relaxing. Thanks for sharing - both of you.
    Love, Mama Linda
