Art Show Starts Tomorrow!

After a grueling couple of days and a lot of teamwork, we are ready for the opening night of "Illumination: The Parables" and our artist's reception tomorrow night.  This is what the storefront looked like when we began:
We cleaned and painted:
Added some artistic extras:
And turned it into a lovely, welcoming space:

We're at the southeast corner of Lemont Road and 75th in Darien.  Friday night, September 30 from 6 - 9 we'll have live music, refreshments and artists!

Early Fall Beauty

Last Tuesday morning I was rushing around getting ready for work when I noticed the play of light in the early morning mist.  It was so striking that I decided to skip breakfast and instead take my camera to the Arboretum for a quick detour to the office.  Not only was it the most life-giving thing I did for myself all week, but I got a couple of nice pictures as well.  This heron was enjoying a leisurely breakfast in the still water:
The dew was magical!

It was a great way to start the day!

Life Goes On

Wow -- life has been zooming by at an alarming pace lately.  No pictures to post today, just a note to say that I'm hoping to be back in a creative way very soon!
