went into a salon yesterday to set up a "consultation" on my current year-long journey that i've been on to find a new person to cut my hair, but not all off like the person i'd been seeing for 15 years. spikey is so yesterday,(and many of the days before that)> so far, during this year,the best cuts were in chicago, and nags head, nc.....but, not practical. too far away. even chicago. a major trip to even get into the city these days, and the cost! yikes. HOWEVER, I'm
not sure if this salon will work for me either: these carvings were featured in the entrance, a local artist's work, very nice yes, and only $50 a piece in lovely frames. but, NOT A GOOD SIGN for a haircutter .

one of the reasons i wanted to go back to this old beach house, circa 1920's, was to photograph some of the interior's history, black and white family shots ... nags head, outer banks.....old weathered grey shingles, on the water, still with the original family. rented only to friends of friends. we had a lovely first visit in october......quiet time there. very quiet. thought we'd try may. not so quiet, and so much colder...the NORTHEASTERN blew for 3 days. cold. rainy. let go of expectations. play scrabble in front of the oven. forget the hammock for the duration!!

just before leaving for the outer banks,
i tore a piece of rice paper off a roll,
touched it with a few sepia ink marks, added
a photo of MY mountain
and laid it between my square basket of
rocks and the round iron top of the pedestal.
that's where my favorite marks came from via the
disintegration project, and look what happened
in just ten days time!!
my new business op!! any orders for Dis-c0 MONOPRINTS!!

free dinner in hard times!!
last year's mulch in our yard
had MOREL SPORES in it.
while out to clip off a tulip,
it was such a surprise to notice a MOREL
MUSHROOM, a rare $50 lb item in Michigan's May.
a whole bowl full with
polenta and aspargus!

No place to nest.
We'd heard this sort of ticking near the front door, and ignored it. Finally,
I had to SEE. Looking carefully, the beginning works of a bird's nest
could be seen in the very top. So much for natural branchy wreaths. It's very much like my ARCH by the road, which looks to have a ready-made nest
in its peak. But not here. We humans MUST come and go. And so did the
twiggy circle. SADLY..for now.
Wreaths do say Welcome.
