Max and I did our big hike-about and then decided for a drive out to see Alvise and to pick up the second angel. I am big on walking, with no purpose but to walk. The same goes for driving…nothing is more wonderful than getting out onto the roads to explore and to see how the seasons are changing. Arriving at the studio, it was so lovely to breath in that wonderful air that comes with being in close proximity to the mountains. Dripping with the scent of evergreen and melting snow, the morning has left me ready to curl up for a nap.
This month’s blue-eyed angel is embellished with the Equinox. The March equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. This happens on March 19, 20 or 21 every year. The animal represented on this angel is the rabbit (in our neighbourhood, these guys are just losing their winter coats) and the alder lichen, one of the rabbits’ favourites. I felt the angel was calling out for a hug and so I embraced her! Beautiful!
Welcome home, little lady!
On the drive back to the city, I really enjoyed a CBC interview with musician, Hayden. In his career in music, he has experienced and thought about all of the same things as I have as a visual artist, but for slightly different reasons. It was a very affirming experience to hear this interview.
Lovely Kathy; so happy you are sharing the angels and love Alvise’s folk art. XOX
He has a kind heart…and makes beautiful things. Grateful for the connection. It was an amazing day!
