A strange morning, this Halloween, waking thinking that it was Monday, not Sunday, eager to resume work in the studio. A sweet, hot cup of coffee enjoyed while perusing the internet, discovering other artists, among them, Painting Well, who donates 100% of her profits to cancer research. My belabored selection, a rare purchase. . . then, apropos of Halloween, in that last sip of coffee, I notice something alien swilling around my mouth. Ptah, ptah!!! Expectorated remains examined between index finger and thumb: a soggy spider, who'd somehow fallen into the coffee pot, drowned and ended up in that last swig of caffeinated brew.
"Life Line" is dedicated to a friend, recently and suddenly taken by death.
