One thin coat applied. Another coming today, sprayed on just days short of the winter solstice by my singing buddy Steve Rose, an amazing painter and guitar player. The red -- with green trim -- can symbolize this season of caroling and good cheer as well as my passion for growing tomatoes and peppers and other things green and red. Red is ripeness. Red is desire. The burning desire to bring forth from the land amazing things, to surprise myself with its fertility.
There, I have done it! I have blogged again after two years of lying fallow in the blogging forest. Or was I merely postponing going out on this frosty morn and doing more weeding in the lettuce patch?
