Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs

God has blessed us with this beautiful earth. I was snap-happy this weekend!


Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs

As I rode, I knitted my feather and fan throw with the Interlacement yarn that was on the swift in a previous post.

For a change of pace and yarn weight, I worked on my wobbly KAL in Lamb's Pride. (See button at right.)

Failure To Launch is a fun movie! If you haven't seen it and feel like laughing, collect your $200 and go directly to a theatre showing this movie!

Beethoven's Hair by Russell Martin was a challenging read, but one that I ultimately enjoyed. It is part documentary, part forensics report, less a novel, yet held my interest despite the lull in the description of the WWII years. The lingering sense from this novel is that there is no privacy-- even in death. A striking journal note written while reading this work is "huge improbabilities and little miracles that...link lives." One month before his death, Beethoven scrawled, "Plaudite, amici, comedia finita est" --Applaud friends, the comedy is finished.
