More beautiful work from my place of employment:
Each of these functional vessels is individually
hand-painted, and they sell at galleries in cities
from coast to coast.
A website is under construction -- I'll be sure
to post it when it's up and running.
I have a suggestion for Mother Nature
in regard to spiders:
First of all, I have to say that I respect
the unique place they occupy in the ecosystem.
I'm not anti-spider in the larger scheme of things.
I just find it unnerving when one crawls towards me
in a haphazard and silent and unexpected fashion.
So my suggestion is that spiders be required
to sound an alarm when approaching a human.
Nothing elaborate, just a simple beeping
would suffice. This is not too much to ask for.
My sister works at Eddie Bauer, and yesterday
one of her customers, in a show of appreciation,
brought her a dozen eggs from his own chickens.
Eggs of varying color and size, from an assortment
of fowl. A fowl bouquet. Bawk bawk.
