Dear reader, I wish you a delicious day. I shall be dining in a truck stop in Arizona, Tonopah Joe’s, made famous in the movie Alice’s Restaurant, with Scott, my husband, and other travellers.
Pure paint is so enticing. I put these on your eye’s table, for your enjoyment. I make them by painting a bright background, then squeezing on globs of color. Then I press another surface on top of it, peel it off, and let it dry. They are deceptively simple; most don’t work, but when they do, you’ve just received a chocolate from the candy box of Fate. Now that I’ve told you how easy they are, do you still respect me in the morning?
We can celebrate with words as well. I offer you synonyms for giving thanks, from the lumbering Thesaurus: praise, benediction, paean, grace, recognition, bless one’s stars (archaic, but beautifully true), acknowledge, appreciate. My thanks to all of you who have invited my work and words into your in-box in the last few months. Sniff.
Mythic news: The Cornucopia was the horn of the goat that suckled Zeus. It overflowed with inexhaustable food and drink. Everyone who’s anyone among the gods loves it. Fans of the Cornucopia include Demeter for the harvest of fruit and vegetables, Dionysios for the wine, Priapus for the sexy fun, Flora for the flowers, Earth, Autumn, Hospitality, Peace, and Concord. May we all dine at this table! Hear, here.
Studio news: I’m traveling in Arizona this week with my Sprockett Rocket in my pocket! What’s that, you say? More soon, when the images are developed for your pleasure. Yes, it’s real film. Remember those days? Please comment if you like something here. I’ll respond as soon as I am back in civilization.
