i am well. 
i don't want to curse myself.
 one of the many painted turtles i've "rescued" this spring
 pretty, and such nice manners!
the snapping turtles
while more earthy looking 
are fierce
the painted are easy to carry to safety
 wrapping up a studio/mill/garage
 very high up
 great marks
 this visitor seems to find
my window screen 
a suitable place to hang out
 maybe it sees some of the colors inside
and feels right at home.
these papers are part of my new project:
a dry garden
hortus siccus.
i am very excited about this!
