I took the photo on the right on my Sunday afternoon walk. The ravine is at the end of our street. The creek flows to the park adjacent to the marina.
In the studio:
Grassy Creek, clue 4.
I've made 17 out of the projected 20 9P churn dash blocks. I hope to get these to the flimsy stage this week.
I got the ARC (advance reader copy) of Kendra Atleework's memoir at ALA Midwinter; it was published in June. It's a fierce and loving tribute to place and to family. The place is Bishop, California, in the Sierras -- the water source for Los Angeles. The family are her father, her mother (who died when Kendra was 16), and her sister and brother. Atleework went to college in Los Angeles and to graduate school in Minnesota (where the green-ness was astounding and disconcerting) -- and finally returned to Bishop.
