When inside the studio, I'm in a different place and time. A creativity exists in this small space that began with chickens laying eggs here in its henhouse days. The seed of life lingers here.

Now, collected stones and lights are laid here instead of eggs. It's a place for stillness, listening, and feeling the sun through the seven windows.

It is amazing how you took four photos of that place and they each look so inviting and inspirational. I think you could take hundreds of pictures and still be just starting to see. Hmmm, this sounds a lot like you Ruth. Keep seeing and helping us see.

I helped pour cement in that building...or maybe I just got it all over my clothes? Either way, I can't wait for the warm weather to allow kitty and me to curl up in a sneeze-filled euphoria rocking gently in the hanging seat.

These photos, Ruth, are my first visual of this space since you fixed it up last year. I am so thrilled for you to have this holy place. (Sounds like it's not just YOUR space, I see :) "Inviting and inspirational." Don is right. Can hardly wait to see it for myself some day...soon, I hope.

After Don and Peter put so much hard work into the studio, it was clear it was not just MY space, that's for sure. And that hammock chair Les gave me is amazing.

Ginnie: You,Donica,Don and I will have tea in the atelier together soon I hope!

this makes me want summer SOOO badly.
i think it's the combination of your words, the sun shining outside the windows and just my imagination taking me away.

I'm ready for spring! Have you heard the birds lately?

I could feel myself relax and get calm looking at these pics--just remembering what that space feels like.
Yes, Don, you are beginning to sound like Ruth :-) And Peter, if you need more cats, I'd be happy to bring some over... ;-)

Love your blog, Ruth! Thanks for sharing the beauty you see.
