Last winter I visited Paris with my sister. One of the places we went was the Centre Pompidou. My sister, her daughter-in-law, her two grandchildren, and I had fun painting in the children's area.
One of my favorite paintings at the Centre Pompidou was Near to the Wild Heart by Paul Klee. This week I illustrated Marge Piercy's poem, "The Visible and the In-", in my journal, with people modeled after Klee's painting. I don't think Paul Klee will mind.
I read a book a day last week (I'm trying to do that all summer) but these were my favorites.
I also watched these movies.
More Paris in July books from the library....
The Texas Library Association came through with a Virtual Summer of Learning after the conference last April was cancelled in Houston. Stephen Harrigan spoke about his recent history of Texas, Big Wonderful Thing. There are some awfully nice things about virtual events....
Good Thing #1
Our public library now has Creativebug. Creativebug has inspiration and lessons for knitting, crocheting, jewelry making, sewing, drawing, and lots of other crafts and art. I like it very much. Do you have Creativebug at your library?
Good Thing #2
I found Krista Tippett's podcast, On Being. I found the podcast after reading Tippett's book, Becoming Wise, composed of conversations Tippett has had since 2003 on the podcast with wise people. Everything on the On Being Project is guided by six guiding virtues: words that matter, hospitality, humility, patience, generous listening, and adventurous civility. Here's a little from the website: 'We explore the intersection of spiritual inquiry, science, social healing, community, poetry, and the arts. We’re offering ongoing special content for this moment, including “care packages” for care givers and uncertain times, and a starting point for the exhausted and overwhelmed.' Sound like anyone you know?
Good Thing #3
We got to see our grandkids! We had a wonderful time with the grandkids. When they got ready to leave, Annie said, "I miss you, Nana." Oh my goodness. I miss them so much.
One of my sweet comadres (Do you know that term? My comadres are the mothers of my daughter-in-laws) brought me this lovely photo of Annie and Wyatt to look at every day.
