I Imagine Us as a Holy Family Engaging
in the Great Work of Increasing Light

--Cappy Thompson, exhibited in the Library
of the Evergreen State College, Olympia

Yesterday at work, the glass artist Cappy Thompson
stopped by to borrow Melinda's sandblaster....
Genevieve graciously blasted a few pieces
for her. Today she rewarded us (all!) by bringing
snacks from Hi Ho Pho -- sushi, several noodle dishes,
and something with green beans and surimi whose name
escapes me. We sat outside bundled in the crisp
cold sunny afternoon and had ourselves a picnic.
Chopsticks, pickled ginger, and something red and spicy
in the world's tiniest container (about the size
of my deformed thumb). (Squished in a car door
when I was six.) Twenty minutes of heaven!
And then: hi ho, hi pho, it's back to work we go....
