Wild at the Edges: Inspiration from a Creative Life available now.

WildattheEdges300

Wild at the Edges:  Inspiration from a Creative Life evolved by keeping in mind the kind of book I like to take to bed with me (maybe with a glass of wine or a mug of hot chocolate) and peruse as the spirit moves me.

You will find encouraging thoughts about life and art, hidden treasures of poems, close-up photos of art and nature and, last, but not least, a very personal view of the driving forces behind my creative life.

Preview Wild at the Edges here.

25% of all profits from this book will be donated to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause.  Fiberart For A Cause has donated more than $190,000 to the American Cancer Society.

Good news, bad news.  My old (can you believe 2005?), but trusty, Coolpix camera survived all the rigors of the Boundary Waters, but then I stepped on it changing clothes in the public parking lot.  So I am using our Nikon D50 until I can research and buy another carry-everywhere camera.

The good news is that it’s a great camera for details, including the chevrons and red coloring on this grasshopper’s legs.

Nature report:  One female hummingbird has left; two remain.  I found a shed snake skin in my garden.

And, of course, there is a new post in The Garbage Day Project today. Those crazy garbage guys are already zooming by in the dark.
