“The primary cholesterol clogging your creative arteries is fear. Fear of imperfection, fear of failure, fear of the pain involved in making progress..” so says Brad Bollenbach

I miss my boy..as I miss them all.
I was searching through boxes today and came across sketches. Pencil drawings. Studies of hands and feet and awkward poses of a boy growing into his adolescent body..
and I remember the day.
How is it possible that it was years ago and not Moments!?
The creamy paper yields images of a day with my son. I can see that slow half smile as he glances from me. As if afraid to meet me head on.
I see the arch of his young foot memorialized in graphite. His mother drawing his foot..how Silly. Yet we both enjoy the presence of the other.
I finish the sketch and make a little squiggle on the tip of his big toe and show him, just to see his grin.
I miss my child.

Listing and re-listing work, photographing some work that was done while in California, re-photographing a bracelet that goes with a pair of earrings made.. ~thus a ‘set’.
wow. ..I made a set ~almost unheard of. 🙂
Here’s a preview of what’s in the shop:

I have a spare room that I can use as a studio space but have to share with that little red bed. It belong to the owners and it must stay, so I have to work around it.
I will look for movable drawers to shove under that work table and maybe pegboard if I can attach it securely..the walls are cement..yes they are. We are on the 3rd floor apartment and the walls are some sort of cement. Its great..no neighbor noise.
I’m hoping that I can somehow use that little room off the side there for the torch but of course working with a torch requires a very good ventilation system so that’s not a go yet..it would be an amazing little work space though, don’t you think?

We visited the site of Abraham’s well today..it’s a sacred site to the Jewish people and unlike Canada or the United States where something like this might be given a national monument and historical park recognition, the site that marks Be’er Sheva’s origin is found with great difficulty [it’s located behind a wall] sitting unassumingly beside the local Dominos Pizza joint [ yes! Domino’s. We were surprised too~]
Be’er Sheva was built on the bank of a wadi which was flooded by rain water in the winter. In the summer the water lay shallow under the ground level. According to archeologists, the site was occupied from the 4th millennium BCE. In 3000 BCE its first peoples moved away and it was only seasonally inhabited by nomads, among these were presumably the Biblical patriarchs – but no archeological traces have been found of them.
Most amazing..hope you all enjoyed your weekend too!
