Antlers, Foil and April Showers
And just after April's adorable baby giraffe is finally born, a great moment of joy and celebration, the cam is shut down. After all that attention, the prize being taken away feels like a door slammed in the face.
April has been one of those months. A way to push through it, is to pick up and create something. Thus, the faux deer is back on the table. The antlers aren't as easy as I thought they would be. I didn't anchor them well. In other words, they can flop over making the deer look like a bull. The aluminum foil is fantastic. I wish I had used it in the armature phase.
The lawn is green and growing, beautiful in the rain, vibrant and refreshing.
This morning a pair of socks on the floor...instead of picking them up, I slid on them to the laundry hamper like I was cross country skiing. I wrote a poem about it. Yes, I do believe I need sunlight.
