It has been a day of birds. Flocks of rook and jackdaw have been tumbling the sky with ragged black wings.
All day I have been thinking and packing.
I have packed a kingfisher, and owl, a bear or two, some paint, paper, brushes, pencils, towels ( you never know when aliens might be around), some wolves, a bowl, badges and bags, cameras and cards and nails and string ( always string). There are things in boxes and bags and bundles, and still I am not done.
Steady rain falls.
I have packed a good heart and hope and expectations, courage and a little foresight, and always, always a good book.
And all of this has bundled into a dragon van for its first big public outing.
Tomorrow I head off toward Oxfordshire and on Wednesday I will be setting up and settling in at Art in Action. Looking forward to settling down to paint.
Some years ago I had a dream of six kingfishers. A few weeks back painted them, and one of the things I will do at Art in Action is gild them.
And I am please to say that today I was accepted on the "Mumsnet" blogger network. I hear them so often on the radio and usually am very impressed with all that they have to say, so proud to be a part of their blogging network. And very impressed with my friend Meg Rosoff, who is one of their 'featured' bloggers. Her new post is LOL.
Enough distraction. TTFP ( Time to Finish Packing).
