Summer, in the midst of it.

August 4th. I spotted a hint of chill in the evening breeze while on the shore, and then after that the moon, half but bright, rose slightly higher in the sky as it always would in September.
Autumn has its ways of sneaking itself in, amidst all that came alive under the August sun setting themselves free in the short, intense Summer.

This is a quick update to let you know that I haven’t turned into a kelp princess and swam away with a school of sardines. Although that’s not sounding too bad.

Thank you for your visit.

Wing Dress – Velocity (2009-2011)

Acid dye on silk-polyurethane.
Feathers are placed to assimilate the sense of speed I emphasize with swallows in flight, as they glide by me slashing the air.
