Dragonfly on a rock-

absorbed in

a daydream

~ Santoka

So happy about my move to WordPress. It’s pretty here.

Change is in the air in so many ways- I started working part time, the kids are about to go back to school and the air tastes and feels of Autumn. The veggie bounty continues to flow from our CSA, Growing Wild Farms. The first local tomatoes arrived and it is heaven! Tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil- what more do you need?

For one thing, a nice cat. Tommie moved in with us- friends found him and he needed a home. He is a real sweetheart- we all love him- well, except our older cat.

For another thing, Dragonflies. August is their month. We have been enjoying these wonderful creatures as they fly around the garden. They- unlike most insects- seem to look at you. One day I was standing in the garden and a reddish dragonfly was flying around me. I put out my hand and it landed on my thumb! Just this past week, I found the most beautiful book on dragonflies at the library. A Dazzle of Dragonflies by Mitchell and Lasswell– it is stunning! The scans of the dragonflies are amazingly detailed and there is information on both the natural and folkloric history of dragonflies.

I’m starting to think about making crafts again, but there is still much to do outside. Stay tuned.
