I am grateful for a full weekend jam packed with great memories.

I am grateful for a sandwich Julie made me this evening.

I am grateful Wild, the film starring Reese Witherspoon from a year or two back. Watched it on Netflix tonight; it was excellent.


I am grateful for a humdinger if a great day. We had Farley’s 6th birthday party here in the campground.Kids ran rampant on bikes in loosely organized mobs. Grownups chilled out in dappled shade. There was an epic squirt gun water fight.We went on hikes. We sang the song and ate the cake. 24 kids and 21 adults made for a total of 45 souls. I made 54 hot dogs over the course of the day. It was a good day. One of the great ones. I am grateful as all heck for all that


I am grateful for time spent in the studio today. First time in a while. It’s good in there.

I am grateful for a day of normal routine. Again, it’s been a while. So normal it felt a little abnormal.

I am grateful for dinner outside, and time spent with my spouse and children.


I am grateful for an opportunity to make Eggs Benedict this morning.

I am grateful for ice cream with my family at Parachute on Bridge Street. Man, they make some good stuff there.

I am grateful for time spent with Coop at the Board Game Cafe.


I’m grateful for another day of flogging art in my front yard, and talking up people people I’ve known forever, along with folks I’ve never met, and feeling the love and support of folks who dig art in my community.

I am grateful for Julie, who tuckered herself and our kids right out with a day at the beach.


I am grateful for good weather and a good crowd in my front lawn for the Scattered Artists Studio Tour.

I am grateful for my friend and fellow Artist Pat, who really likes my kids, and played Scrabble with Coop for a good long while, and was generally fun to be around for the day.

I am grateful for a night out with Julie. We saw Deadpool 2, which was irreverent and fun.
