"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web." - Pablo Picasso
One thing I like to do on rainy, foggy mornings is check out the spider webs. I am so impressed with the fact that something that looks so delicate is so sturdy in the wind. I liked this little guys web because it was still under construction. I guess the beauty of the blanket surrounding us on mornings like this is the fact it makes us take notice of our environment closest to us.
As you can tell from my description, we are socked in and wet this morning. We received a little under half an inch of rain last night. There was an impressive lightning storm going on out my window as I fell asleep. The low was only 53 and the high yesterday was in the mid 60s. We have seen a lot of cloud coverage over the past month. I am ready for some clear blue skies and beautiful days on the mountain. My "happy light" has been working overtime.
