"Even writers need relief from words."
~ sarah vowell ~

I'm coming up blank these days. I guess staying holed up in my studio, only venturing out on my twice-daily walks with the pups, or for quick trips to Trader Joe's for wine, doesn't make for very interesting stories. (Although, you should pop over to Mo's place...he can make an everyday bus commute sound like a scene in a Fellini movie.) I wish I had that guy's way with a story.

It's also about being broke and underemployed, but pups and wine and cow-bunnies and fairies are some of the things I'm grateful for.

(Oh, and blog friends, can't forget them!)

Oh, Miss Cactus, I LOVE the new dress! You are so very talented.

I'm thinking you could make one heck of a Little Black Dress for a lucky New Year's Fairy out of some of those silky crow feathers.
