I love these funny paintings at Feature right now. I am reminded of how insular good abstract paintings are, how strange they can feel when encountered in the course of a day, today--and how grateful I am for the way they collide with my typical pace. These make me come to a screeching halt so I can just look, because these are what I want to look at right now.
Facebook doesn't do this, nor email or my blog...or any other blog for that matter.
Our woodstove makes me stop--with its emanating heat pulling me/all of us in.
Other things that still:
Alexander's little hands reaching for me as he wakes--and their warmth
