Thanks, Piglet!

Thanks, Piglet

I can’t turn my back for two seconds, without Piglet getting into things.

To Do and To Finish

To Do and To Finish

I finally finished one book that had been lingering, so there’s hope that I might make some progress on the others. Maybe.

Watching TV with His Piggy

Watching TV with His Piggy

Thomas is a contortionist. That doesn’t look comfortable to me, but apparently he has no bones in his body.

Art

Art

To evoke in oneself a feeling one has experienced, and having evoked in oneself, then by means of movement, line, color, sounds or forms express in words, so to transmit that feeling that others experience the same feeling–this is the activity of art.

Art is a human activity consisting in this, that one man consciously, by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through and that others are infected by these feelings and also experience them.

Leo Tolstoy

Nosey Barker

Watching

I have no idea what he was looking at, out the patio window, but he sees everything. And he has opinions about everything. And he shares those opinions. Loudly.

The Freedom Fighter's Manual

I spent Christmas weekend finishing up work on a collage book I started two years ago. It was enormous (108 pages), so I don’t know when I’ll find the motivation to sit down and scan the whole thing. I did a page-through video, though. (Audio provided by Thomas, who decided that was the perfect time to sit down next to me and chew on his Benebone.)
