|Random visual because we need something here. A piece of watercolours, pastels and charcoal from a class on Abstract Painting.|

Sad and frustrating has ruled this past week. Our daughter has moved away, a two day drive away, and won't be back for ages and ages if ever. She will visit and we will visit her, but it becomes very different. I'm struggling to shift gears, no daily phone calls, no drop-ins for tea, no messing about with chores or gardens while we talk about things. Skype will have to become my new best friend. On the other hand, she is having an adventure, is happy in her new place, has a new comfy couch and has friends already in town. I will be happy for her as soon as I get over myself. Me and I have some talking to do.
sewn a birthday present shirt, watched a back-log of videos from Karen Ruane's current class and wandered around the house, sort of packing for a week at the camp.
As a side bar, Karen Ruane is offering a 12 week course beginning Sept 7th. Go to her site (see sidebar) and in the shop you will find a description. I'll be taking it, although it isn't completely up my alley, but I learn so much and the group is always so interesting.
