I awoke today to fantastic light streaming through my bedroom window onto this orchid that's been in bloom for over a month.
And through this Rex Begonia, highlighting the veins and turning their dark red leaves a lovely pink.
I've decided to give myself a holiday today. People who work a normal 9 to 5 job get holidays quite often, but to me it's usually just another work day. I stayed in my PJs all morning, drank coffee, cooked myself a nice breakfast and watched Sunday Morning on CBS. It's my favorite news-magazine type show that features plenty of stories about art and music and always a humorous segment or two. The segment at the end that shows a video from nature is always too short. Today they featured the watercolorist Mary Whyte from South Carolina, who preserves vanishing ways of life on canvas. Also a story about South By South West (SXSW), the music festival in Austin, Texas where many musicians can get a leg up into the big time.
The rest of the day is yet unplanned. I like it that way! Happy Labor Day to everyone.
