In the interview with Madeline L'Engle I linked to in yesterday's post (it's fantastic; I hope you'll read it), she said "inspiration comes during rather than before." That is a message I first heard decades ago from one of my college art professors; basically the adage that "art is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration." So true!
The other day I received a surprise in the mail from blogpal Sandra. Even though I don't have lambs coming this spring, I hope to breed again in the future, and this handy little book is just what I've been wishing for since my first lambing seven years ago. In fact, I'm going to use it to document all the lambs born on Boulderneigh (since there haven't been that many) so it will be a complete record from the beginning. That will give me a good excuse to look back through my photo files for a 'lamb fix,' and while I'm at it, I'll post a photo of each lamb here, too. So stay tuned for cute!
That's it for today from . . .
