In a few days it will be my family's one-year anniversary of living in England. I feel like I'm finally starting to feel that old familiar urge to create. I've missed conspiring on projects with you. But I think we should have a new beginning--create a new sugar city, evolved into where we are in our current lives. It is so beautiful in England. I feel constantly inspired to pick up my brush and paint what I see. I know that the spring in California must be amazing. (I love your cherry blossom painting, by the way.) What if we made a painting correspondence? We could choose a theme, it could be one word, or a photo, or general idea, then we could each paint our own interpretation.
What would you like to do for our first project? I'm thinking clouds, sad, brooding, menacing clouds. Is that too melancholic for the spring? Maybe it would be befit the catastrophic events in Japan. What do you think?
Also, I'm constantly inspired by your mind. I love how you are constantly reading good books and sharing all your interesting insights. Perhaps we could continue with your goal to read more classics. What would be a good book to read next?
I've got some other ideas of posts about my effort to teach my kids French which has been on-going for about two years, as well as some of the challenges of raising children today. What do you envision for our new beginning?
I can't wait to hear from you...
