WORKING WITH CLAY

Whether it's the round feel
of a simple clay bowl 
in the hands of an 
autistic young student,

or a flower petal turtle
from the mind and hands
of an highschool art student,

the tactile pleasure of
working with clay
is therapeutic joy.

Such a satisfying class.

VIEW FROM ROOM 665

Missed yesterday's Pic-A-Day
due to required hospital stay
at Missouri Baptist Hospital.

Confined to bed for tests.
(View from private room seen here.) 

Restricted diet included 
lime green gelatin treat.   Yum.

Now for the good news:
Biopsies proved negative!

Pic-A-Day back on schedule.

(Just in time for Inauguration Day.)

FACES IN THE ICE

Water has a way
of freezing and melting
into beautiful shapes.

Each snowflake is a
perfect example.

Take this riverbank pool;
ice melting from our
recent thaw.

I see a face.

FOGGY DAY
IN KIRKWOOD TOWN

The weather warmed  up,
  and the ice is now gone. 

And with all this moisture,
the fog is here to stay.

50's and 60's all week long.

(Who's in charge of this weather,
anyway?)

WHAT THE ICE STORM
LEFT BEHIND

On every tree, every bush,
nothing escaped the 3-day ice storm.

Even as it now melts,
and temperatures warm,
it leaves a beautiful show
of icy wonder.
