Packing up




I've spent this week-end getting ready for ARTFEST. I leave on Wednesday, meeting my aunt and my sister, having a girls week-end with the bonus of doing art work. My sister is teaching two classes there this year and my aunt is her assistant, it is a work weekend for them but fun and games for me. Taking a break from the packing I went for a walk in the hills. I kept my eyes wide opened for the beautiful blue bird I had seen the week before but he was no where in sight. In place of the bird was the most delicate blue butterfly who I chased for many minutes hoping for the right moment to capture it on film but it was not to be. Some memories must be left for the mind-now I wonder what next blue creature I'll see that will bring me a sense of mystery. How I love the out doors and the surprises it holds.
