I miss the circulating I was doing up until the time I took this movie. Not much time for blogging now, with the arrival of little baby wonderful, and work. Spent the day aging and generally messing up a meth lab (a movie set). What do I know about meth labs? Not much, but with references and some imagination I can muck one up. Oh, the glamorous life of the movie painter. I come home spattered and speckled. The movie has been a blessing that came up out of nowhere, even if it does have me falling asleep at night in my clothes. Ada has something to do with that, too.
Ada, by the way, is wonderful. Ten days old now, stronger every day. Good strong lungs and she’s not shy about letting us know when she needs some attention. She sleeps a lot, nurses, sleeps, poops, looks over my shoulder into the world she just left, sometimes seems to nod at friends there. She’s beginning to focus with that odd, musing, gathering look that new babies have.
Here are a couple of pictures I took last night with the laptop.
So…. not much time now for anything except home life and work. I look forward to visit everybody’s blogs and reading your poetry and writing again sometime soon. In the meantime, here is a link to Cristine’s writing on ekphrasis poetry.
(It feels a little weird to be putting this personal stuff out there but… it also feels natural. Weird, huh? I guess it makes sense, with family and friends checking in here, and blogging friends, too. Thanks for all the love. Peter Tavernese, el senor openhand, I’m going to post your poem here later, too. Gotta do it.)
Now it’s back to work!
