the world seems somehow brighter today.  i spent much of the morning pouring over the newspaper, elated, tired, and emotional.  it has been a long time since i felt like a part of this country.  now i am proud we have elected a true leader - thank you, barack obama!

the shadows on our glass kitchen table remind me of pictures of saturn's rings...

sean and i drove to new hampshire a few weeks ago and had a lovely visit with dear friends kelda and kaia - and kelda's sweet finn!  here are a few moments from our day - an art studio tour, lovely fall foliage, and a bit of time in the yard...

a few weeks ago sean and i went to the big E, the county fair in nearby springfield.  i'd never been to this type of fair before - it was fun to look at all of the farm animals!  unfortunately my camera ran out of memory before we got to the antique tractors and tiny nursing piglets.  we passed on the funnel cakes, dizzying rides, and generally overblown commercialism at the fair.

i have been extremely busy the last couple of weeks, little time to post.  we are slowly getting settled in northampton, and enjoying the lovely views of fall in our neighborhood.  i took this pic before the leaves started falling - there was such a lovely fog in the backyard.  it reminded me of mornings in humboldt county.

i don't have a studio yet, so yesterday i set up printing some tee shirts in the backyard.  it was fun working in the sun, the tees dried quickly, and i loved the way the sun looked coming through the screen...

a pierogi bike pilgrimage

western massachusetts has great bike paths.  and, as we found the other day, very tasty pierogis!  we biked to a sweet little shop for our homemade polish treats.  i made special note of the wood panelling on the ceiling.  its fun to explore our new neighborhood!

the kitties stayed with molly in NY while sean and i were driving across the country in august.  molly had a groomer give them the "lion cut".  she did this largely for her own amusement, but there were some side benefits - no shedding or furballs!  sally looked especially ridiculous.

we've bought a few pieces of furniture on craigslist for our new apartment that needed painting.  i was working outside, and tiny bugs kept getting caught in the paint!

it has taken me a while to post these last pictures from our cross country trip!  we made an unexpected stop in south dakota at a nuclear missile silo and launch facility that was built in the sixties.  it is no longer in use, of course, but is open as a national monument.  our tour was led by a former member of the air force who had worked at the launch facility in its earliest days.  we saw the bunker where the air force was always ready to press the button and start a nuclear war with the ussr.  mind boggling!

on our road trip we stopped in the badlands.  it was spectacular!

our favorite campground on the cross country trip was the KOA at devil's tower.  the location was spectacular, and they screen Close Encounters of the Third Kind every night on a television outside.  perfect.
