There it is!

The sun was warm and beautiful coming in through my studio windows today, and after much tea drinking and procrastination, I got out there and made a few things.
Just to clear up one thing. This is not for those of you who know me, because you know better, but someone called me out on Gerry's expression fag off, in my recent post. Let me just make it perfectly clear that it was not intended as a derogatory comment and perhaps I should have spelled it in a more phonetic way, I didn't think anything of it at the time. When Gerry and his friends (biking/climbing buddies) use this term it is pronounced more like faucgk off, sort of saying fuck but really not, I don't know how to sound this out for you, imagine a british guy saying it, that's what they do. Anyway, I don't use this word in my language, my best friend in college was gay and died of aids, Gerry's best friend in high school was gay and died of aids, I have friends with kids who are gay, I was a designer and most of my associates were gay....it wasn't intended that way so if you were offended, my apologies, it wasn't meant to!!!  I guess I should have just said piss off, to keep it simple :)

Sun here today too. I was actually very productive in the studio, took 2 walks and met with a client. I can't believe how energizing the sun has been. I'm glad it's shining on you too.

The sun is shining today. I like the pic.

Ha!... you need to start making a list of the things you can't do. ;)
Hmmmmm, let's see; be careful what you say (or at least how you say it) and be careful what you pick up in the woods. Is that it so far?... surely not.

Ugh. So irritated to hear that you would ever get flack for something likc this. The self-righteous are thick on the ground. It's a minefield out there. Love your blog, your work, your writing, your attitude. yo
