Words from the Woods – Beauty All Around

Thursday, September 17, 2015

Good Morning, Catoctin!

Being an artist and writer, I love noticing details.  Even after sitting at my picnic table studio each day for almost two weeks, I continue to see new things.  This is an important lesson – give everyday life and its contents a second or third look – and see the beauty therein.

Looking up from my work, I see the trees that keep me shaded.  Near the table I see what looks like a little terrarium garden.

Cabin 16 awaits another visitor today.  My dear friend Diane is driving up and bringing lunch.  We have been friends since our children met at the bus stop on the first day of kindergarten – 26 years ago.  I am looking forward to her visit and anxious to show her around.


Diane and I hiked, dined al fresco, and then sketched outside.  Another wonderful gift of a day.


I completed another piece for the journal this afternoon.


Very noisy group in the campground tonight.  Cannot hear anything but them.  Wonder what the real night owls are thinking. . .
