This past month my social life has consisted of eating lunch with Sarah and spending the night at Luke's. And only rarely. I am very busy. But every once in a while a breath of fresh air can clear the mind and re-energize the creative spirit. And so with this in mind I linked arms with Natalie, a fellow artist and all-around rad woman. We headed out to pick pears and walk in the woods. I took home 30 pounds of pears and I plan on drying every last one of them. She took home a modest 25 pounds and talked of pear butter. At the end of our sojourn my mind was actually emptied of clothing details and filled with life's questions and a couple of answers. Thank you Natalie.
