Black and white

In a few short hours Rob and I will drive a borrowed car to a Salt Lake crematory, to watch over our dear Phoenix as she enters the fire, accompanied by the love of many of her family and friends.



I'll have to miss my haircut appointment with Patrick. Oh well, that's life. Or in this case, death.

As soon as we get home I will attempt to finish making this:



Now that's life.

In the evening I will get to watch and yell as one of my young women kicks this:



It's going to be a day of high contrasts, that much is sure.

Mirjam, what a beautiful face to find waiting on my blog this morning! I feel the same way you do. And I miss you!

CW, it's little ironies like these that keep me interested. xo

Speaking of borrowed cars, the new car we were going to get blew up, so we have to stick with the old one (so sorry, we were so looking forward to giving it to you guys -- but then again, did you really want to drive around in a 20-year-old brown minivan?).

I'm just sitting here thinking about life's cycles and how things ebb and flow.

if you need a car still in jan/feb you can have ours for keeps for a grand total of $1,000! But, I sincerely hope you find one before the weather turns bad. good luck with your busy day!
