yellow birch

 the new place
has yellow birch sills 
and now floors
 sills are oiled, 
floor just installed and unfinished
details unfinished still
but you can see it shaping into home.
i am reading 
to take new ideas into teaching:
 i've been looking at 
 drum leaf binding samples
 books made with paste
and paint and pencil 
paper pages, in preparation
drum leaf binding with paste papers 
for teaching in melbourne
an experimental class to push us all
and making new prints
to see where they take me,
to oz? or where they go
and i have apps to do
nyfa grants. 
teaching workshops.
