8.18.2012... cloudless, windless

A few days ago clouds at the horizon made mountain shapes looking like another range. Center stage from where I sat in my Two Dot bed, the sun worked itself into the sky over a cloud looking a little like Mount Rainier. My second home is calling me back in cloud shapes.This last day in the schoolhouse will be full of finishings. The studio work that feels like it is just beginning will be packed and wrapped. The bedding will be washed and stored. The food we didn’t eat passed along to the cousins who live here year around. This stay has been long and short. I am ready to go and not ready. How can you wrap up a summer when you are still so close you can only see the fur? Who knows what kind of animal it is.
