Morning Sketch... with Pear...

pear This morning was the first time I sat outside with my sketchbook. I had a pear from a friend and sat on the porch sharing it and thanking my Muses for traveling with me. It felt like a long time since I had picked up the pencil to draw, and last night I actually had a moment of "what if I can't do it any more"... it's funny how that self-doubt creeps in.

I'm still unpacking, and am swamped with with work projects, but the sun is shining and I am feeling more settled. I've met the local hummingbirds, cardinals, and a woodchuck that reminded me of the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. I was taken on hiking trails a few minutes up the road, one has Tiny Free Library just off the path! I almost have my post office combination memorized, and already have 5 books on loan from the library.

Wishing you all of you a day with some joy and light... I found mine already this morning.
