the week in review
it's really beginning to look and feel like fall - grey skies, cooler temperatures and the deciduous trees'
leaves have now turned golden. 145 daffodil bulbs were planted on the slope in the backyard, which proves
challenging because of the steep incline. hopefully some will survive the winter and welcome spring. you
can see some of the pages that were created in my art journal in the previous post and one below.
the beauty of working in the art journal is that you can
always return and rework the page or just revisit it at a
later date. there are lessons learned and experiments
that fail, but it is all a journey.
with covid spiking, we are spending more time indoors and it was a great week for movies, music and
books. there was the tom petty birthday bash, david byrne's american utopia and good lord bird
providing hours of entertainment.
there were a lot of new releases in the music world. so i gave some a
listen. machine gun kelly and future islands were my favorites. machine
gun kelly leaves the rap behind in favor of a pure post punk extravaganza.
there is a lot to be said about bruce springsteen and the e street band
but i will leave that to all the critics. it's a strong album from a guy who has
entertained us for decades. sufjan stevens and travis also had new releases.
transcendent kingdom by yaa gyasi is one of my favorite books of the year. tana french's the searcher is a mystery set in a small irish village. dear child combines the intensity and suspense of gone girl with room. scary stuff.
all of this and so much more! i shouldn't overlook that there was some baseball thrown into the mix and also homemade apple pie!
onward to next week - i wonder if there will be trick or treating on hallow'een night.
