canal dreams

We are paddling on the Fremont canal and it's not only the boats that are drifting...

My mind travels from rusty hulls to memories of Barcelona.

An under-pier cathedral all a glow!

Salmon pink globes hovering like lanterns.

It was Shanghai and the Pearl Tower!

A short little stretch of water becoming longer the slower we travel...

A message from beyond!

One fine summer afternoon my friend Joanne stopped by the studio. As we chatted she worked her way around the room looking at and fondling the work. She ended up with a yellow "Smile" cup in her hands. She really didn't seem to want to part with it, and I didn't have the heart to charge her for it. She is a lovely person, all about doing nice things for others, so I told her to just take it home. A few months later I received this post card!!!

The post card read:
" Hi Mom, Its me! Here in I am in the land of Ghengis Khan! Can you see him next to me? I live at the Ashral Charity Center where lots of people come and go everyday. Everybody smiles when they see me. Hi to my brothers and sisters!
Love, Your Darling Cup."
Joanne took him with her on a visit to Mongolia.
I think he is happy there!

Floating World

At the bottom of a warm pool the manatee floats.
Until visitors in small boats visit.

The small one is very curious.
A mother continues to nurse her baby, and someone is sleeping.

Paddles and tails...

Under the shade of jungle leaf, we float on top. Occasionally we roll into their world.

Time spent with them is in suspension
