* Bloody Freezing and Frida Kahlo
Currently, I am waiting for the kettle to boil so I can fill my hot water bottle! How bad is that?????? I told you, flying solo has it's draw backs! A partner comes with body heat. lol I just checked the current conditions. It's 36 degrees F!!! That's only 4 degrees above freezing. YIKES! I'm going for my hot water bottle ... the kettle is boiling. I'd better grab it before I'm blinded by the steam in the kitchen.
Besides the nightly Siberian effect in SMA, things are still going swimmingly. I have enrolled in a Shrine making workshop. Not 'til the end of January. For an age now, I have wanted to do some work with shrines. It's past due. This is the perfect opportunity.
Anado McLauchlin, who teaches the class seems very interesting indeed (this could be an understatement). Have a boo at his web site at www.madebyanado.com. I can't wait to see where he lives. It is outside SMA. I shall take a taxi.
I've had another excellent day. I enjoyed taking photos. I will share them with you tomorrow.
Again today, the art here absolutely overwhelms. It will take me awhile to absorb is all. I'm so in love with the architecture. It's soft, round, gracious, fluid and flowing. I could go on and on. I long to scoop it up and take it home with me. I've always said I was born in some distant land, far away from my real place of belonging. The Mediterranean caused that feeling within me. Here in San Miguel, far away from Canada, I know this to be true.
Haiku for today:
The air is thick with
truth - I am in love with all
bathrooms! Thank you God!
