Painting a portion of my house, first time in seventeen years.
Breathing lead dust, up before sunrise, weatherman calling for severe thunderstorms and hail later today.
Took Sophie for a walk in the mist by the river. Picked up a copy of Charlottesville's arts and entertainment weekly, The Hook
. Publisher Hawes Spencer has been good to me over the years. Starting when I was a repair plumber and continuing through my other Mr. Fix-it Careers (HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, radiology tech) Hawes' newspaper was my creative outlet.
Course now there is the Internet, but nothing is quite as fine as works on paper. Great happiness to have what newspaper photographers call a "double-truck", two pages of pictures side by side without advertisements.
Editor Spencer gave me four double trucks in a row.
Hawes is the man!
