What do you want?
I have been asking myself this lately with renewed desire for clarity…
More on that later, perhaps, as it relates to my craft work, but for now, let me say, I want a couple of days of sunshine. The photos below were taken in my garden at midday, after a grey morning, and before an afternoon filled with thunder and some spattering of rain.
I want to go to the beach. I want to wander into the backyard and not get wet. I want the driveway beds to smell fresh, not like rotting vegetation. I want to be able to dash out the door in short sleeves, unencumbered by umbrella or slicker. I want to use the grill again.
Happy July 4, everyone! I’ll be attending Newton’s fireworks tomorrow, which are always great. And guess what? I hear it’s not going to rain!
What do YOU want?
PS The quilt shot above is from a piece called “Valentine to Iraq” — in the brief spasm of sunshine today I managed to take pictures of a number of quilts. Look tomorrow for images.
