I've had the opportunity to be "free" for a short period of time. The other side of parental freedom is a type of singularity, as in isolation, alone-ness. Damn that green grass!
The last several nights I've not been able to sleep... not until the wee hours of the morning and tonight is no different. That's what's so great about being 'retired'...it makes no difference how long I stay up because I can sleep in for as long as I want.
I caught the rerun of Oregon Art Beat for this week. (All summer they are playing repeats and the viewers are the ones to select which shows are schedule.) Serena Barton was the featured visual artist. On first viewing I like her work.
