Quiet nights like these make me think of you. Sometimes I think I could hear the pitter patter of your little paws finding its way to be near us.
A few months have gone by since you left us so quietly. That night you seemed so chipper and happy seeing our friends come over for dinner. Then so quickly you just decided to die. You made life so easy for us, even your death was so quick with very little pain.
Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for changing my mind about getting a dog for my birthday some 15 years ago. Thank you for the way you greeted me each day as if it would be your last...but I still miss you.

What results will I accomplish today? The beauty of the handmade paper is that uncertainty, that imperfection and this is how I approach my prints. I have a general idea, carve it out, sometimes changing in midstream and the result is almost secondary. I enjoy the harmonious balance of ink on paper and how it tells stories on so many levels.
Pat and I spent a few hours getting some prints done, because our friend, Mary C. Leto, will be taking a booth at In the Spirit, the Art and Craft of Hand Papermaking, sponsored by Friends of Dard Hunter, in Atlanta. She kindly offered to take some of our work with her. Since this is a papermaking conference we bought some handmade paper at the Paper Studio, a local paper and printing space, run by Cindy Iverson.
