|Four Leaf Studio with clover and Klee-inspired paintings|
Last summer I worked on an unusual project. I made a painting of a molecular structure (MetNI)that my brother Doug had studied. The painting was in the style of Paul Klee. (Please see my September 5, 2011 blog and Now for Something Completely Different!) Learning about Klee was an affirming exercise because he believed in his own guidance and his circumstances (often far from ideal) never hindered his ability to create. What is the clover connection? Klee is the German word for clover.

Mary went to France in September and in preparation started a blog: trefle a cinq feuilles (the five leaf clover). She has had a wonderful year full of affection (in the sense that Wendell Berry expresses) learning Breton and teaching little French children English, along with simply being in France.
It has been a sweet year, apparently, too sweet as my fasting blood glucose level is too high. So, I have a new project for my new year. Perhaps I shall reach perfection! No need to worry about that! But, I will enjoy tweaking my perspective. Maybe I will look up...
