In lieu of trying to belong to any number of societies: Chesterton, Sherlock Holmes, the Inklings, and so on: I propose and establish one of my own. Don your intelligence cap at the door; dust off your logic and imagination; did you bring your inspiration and encouragement? We are shapers, my friends; lit lamps; light-bringers. Bring quotes*; poetry should be uplifting and thoughtful, or witty and clever, (or both). Humor is encouraged; laughter is invited back. Pull up a chair. Anyone for tea?

* C.S. LEWIS, J.R.R. TOLKIEN, SHERLOCK HOLMES, G.K. CHESTERTON, N.D. WILSON, AND P.G. WODEHOUSE, ARE ENCOURAGED

Back in Place




cozy bedroom


Not to say that I am finished with painting projects or anything. . .

Actually, besides my last small shelf that is becoming green, I am also working on varnishing the hull of my sailing sloop--next comes the detailing, and then another coat of varnish, and then assembly and flag-making, before I actually get to see her skim before the breeze with the water lapping under her forefoot, heeling gently on the starboard tack.
