finally, spring

This is a photo of the Kansas flint hills, taken from here. For anyone who has heard that Kansas is completely flat, this is proof to the contrary.

It appears that spring has actually arrived, which means severe weather season is here. For those of you who saw the movie Twister, it was wildly inaccurate although we do get some very severe storms here including tornados, hail, straight line winds, etc. that happen when warm and cool air masses collide. This is why EVERYONE in Kansas has a basement or storm cellar in their house and place of work. It's just prudent.

I got absolutely nothing of an artistic nature accomplished over the weekend, a situation that I intend to remedy starting this evening. I've got a couple of ATCs to finish, along with some inchies, then I'm moving on to a new project I've got in mind which seems to be stemming from my commissioned piece combined with inspiration from Susan Lenz's great installation piece. Together, these influences have me thinking about doors. We'll see where that leads.

I saw TWISTER and it terrified me. I hope you stay safe all spring and enjoy the new season!
