Speaking of getting children to sleep – I was willing my child to sleep while drawing this tonight and by the time I finished this drawing, SHE’S ASLEEP. So, I think I am onto something here guys.
From the day dear horse was put down – almost a week now – I have been doing little drawings and paintings of objects that are connected to the farm and this sad time in our lives.
It has taken me almost a week to sit down with my daughter and talk to her about the horse. I feel bad that I didn’t talk to her earlier, but I just couldn’t. It was traumatic to see – but we must take comfort in that it was the humane thing to do.
I think I explained it as best as I could. I think she understands.
Horse passing triggers up all of the loss from this last year. But we are close to some kind of finishing line, close to closure. Or something.
Close to beginning again.

Yesterday was a beautiful and sunny day, so we took to the road to go to Talbot Farmers Market. It was such a beautiful market, I got myself some ink wells, G got himself some beautiful old tools and little one some books. We admired the produce and the puppies and sat and ate bagels in the sun.
