Six Senses Sunday #3

See:
* Signs of Spring!!! I was so excited to find this Winter Jasmine today. It definitely means that it will warm up soon and there will be sun again...I am just sure of it....right? You think so don't you? I will if you will...Spring has to be here soon...
* The sweet faces of friends from long ago that I don't see often enough
* The Winter part of the NOW exhibit at the Museum...really good, not as wonderful as the first part but still good. An amazing piece done by Patrick Ryoichi Nagatani done on masking tape...you gotta see it, nice piece by Kristen Diener and a gorgeous panoramic image of the Albuquerque Rail yards by Bill Tondreau. But my favorite was an installation by Jennifer Vasher called "the past is never dead and buried"...long ropes draped floor to ceiling over a fainting couch, garland after garland draped from floor to ceiling, garland after garland of...wait for it...aspirin and Tylenol!!! Threaded on waxed thread! It was so cool because it was such a surprise...
*AND!!! this!!! my very early birthday present!!! A Cynthia Cook original!! Isn't it fabulous? Photo by Elaine Russell
Hear:
* Water dripping...it sounded so fresh and I need fresh!
* An amazing harp concert just for us. One of my classmates in the Cynthia Cook class brought her harp on the last night and played for us. She even played the Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen that has been my theme song for days and days now... along with Here Comes the Sun...we are all desperate for sunshine these days
Taste:
* Delish turkey, dressing, peas and salad at my friends home...followed by lava muffins! Have you ever tasted lava muffins? They are gooey and chocolaty and warm and yummy!
* Dulce de leche candy

Feel:
* Delighted to have met and had a class with the wonderful Cynthia Cook.
* Frustrated and SAD that it has been gloomy and gray here for a month or more. I need the sun and sunshine and blue skies and typical New Mexico weather...

Touch:
* Snow, rain, umbrellas, gloves, scarfs....I'm done already!
* Handmade paper that I am sorting out for a new project at work
* Glass, metal and sandpaper in class preparing to begin something...finally!

Smell:
* Clothes strait out of the dryer
* Chocolate lava muffins!
* Turkey cooking

I love lists, I love making lists and I love sharing lists...hope you have a great week...make a list of what made it great and share it!

Oh, I'm sorry about the grey days! How is it now? I love a good class, don't you? It made me smile to read that someone brought along... her HARP! I mean, just in her briefcase?! HA

I like your lists. My list for the past week is: well...

LOVE!
