Things I'm thinking about today: My brand new nephew - Silas Connelly Raines - who was born last night!
The slow to rise morning sun
Giant spiders and their feasts
Paying a visit to my east coast family and friends
Knitting a giant fall sweater for my house (Artist Robyn Strong did something similar with a water tower in NYC - picture to the right)
The TBA festival - I haven't seen so much of it this year, and maybe I'll see more this weekend, but part of me would rather go play in the woods
The terrible things happening in the world (corporate corruption, carnage, rape, animal abuse, farmer suicide, earth battering, fast food consumption, etc.), and though I cross my fingers and toes for happiness for people and planet alike, I'd rather not say much more about it.
