A Soul's Walk

Writing feels like disrobing
And being naked in front of strangers
Well that can be weird
They are seeing parts of you you don’t even show yourself
And although they don’t usually know what they mean
or what they are seeing…
it is you.

On a car. He has a thing about old cars.  So when a great weariness descends upon him…

.. he looks for a car with a nice flat boot (trunk) to lie upon. 

The tire was nicely placed to rest his wee headie and serve as a wind break.

I am training the pigs to come when they are called (eventually, with supervision and an electric fence, they will be allowed out into a field) so I closed some gates and let them out into the barn, repeatedly calling them back to their own pen for a treat. So they could practice coming back IN. They came every time. Though evidently an onion is not a treat!  They ran round and round like the hellions they are and every now and then would throw themselves into the straw for a roll about.  Then as though by secret command, they would…

Hi F&F,

I think I may have cut the top a little too short, but there’s not much to do about that. It didn’t have the same stretch as the other tops I’ve made with this pattern (Flouncing Sleeves top, Star T-shirt) so it’s also a bit boxy. But I still like it!

The fabric is a stretch lace which I picked up from the scrap bin in the store. It was a bit hard to figure out which way I wanted it to go, but in…
