Hunkered over my sketchbook

It is Winter and I am in a state of consolidation. My wonderful home is in flux as I prepare to make a new studio. I do not like disturbing everything. I feel deeply disturbed inside and doubts come rushing in. I keep small sketchbooks of skinny black pen drawings, and try to bridge the gap across the upheaval with my own flimsy trust in the future. Meantime I have a new stainless steel long handled bulb planter and at intervals I go out to my drying green and plant a batch of blue camassia bulbs in the certainty? that they will thrill me in the Spring.

I was crestfallen, and not a little miffed at fate for working against me.
