He is outside of everything, and alien everywhere. He is an aesthetic solitary. His beautiful, light imagination is the wing that on an autumn evening just brushes the dusky window.

Mother Nature is putting on her seasonal decorations, and I thought I might do the same for some of my images since I won’t be decorating the house this year. Or maybe it’s already decorated. Theme Chaos. The only pumpkin I have in the house is a small one waiting to be baked and turned into a pumpkin soup. M did take a Sharpie and draw a face on it, though. Or maybe that was on the butternut squash. Either way, it’s cute.
My digital art skills are not mad skillz, but it’s something I enjoy doing every now and then. Between now and Halloween, I’ll post something decorative to celebrate the season.
Cold air made its way to the Eastern Shore yesterday. I find it refreshing and invigorating. This is my kind of weather. Sunny, brisk, windy. Autumn at her finest.
Work on the kitchen is coming along. I’ll show you some pictures soon. We will be finishing up the demolition work this weekend. The appliances will be moved to a temporary holding area (known as the living room in most homes). Until the renovations are finished, all meals will be either heated/cooked in the microwave (scary thought as the microwave we have doesn’t work well — it’s too hot — and will be replaced with a new one) or we’ll eat out or bring home carry out.
One of the kitchen guys will be here on Monday to mark out the electrical work, and our electrician will be here sometime after that to do the work. We ended up finding our own electrician rather than go with the guy who works with the kitchen design company. He couldn’t be bothered to call back and explain why his estimate was $4400 when others were in the $1600 range. Just the fact that he didn’t answer phone messages made him unreliable to me.
That’s all the news from the Wabi-Sabi Ranch for today. Thank you for visiting. A warm welcome to my new visitors and subscribers. If I haven’t been around to return your visit yet, I will be soon. With all the work and change going on here at the WSR, it’s hard to keep up with everything else.
Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.
