Straddling the Seasons

Thanks for your notes asking where I’ve been lately as my blog posts have been pretty sparce. All is OK, I’ve just been very busy with multiple studio projects, and my day-to-day life. I have more ideas for my blog than I have time to follow up with. I’ve been  jotting them down in a little notebook that I keep on my desk so I won’t  forget them.

The unusually early arrival of spring has me disoriented. I’ve been straddling two seasons – skiing and cycling. On one hand I’ve been hanging onto the snow, and with the other thinking how nice it is to ride in shorts!

Snow will win out as I’m off to the Alps for a ski tour in a couple of weeks. Getting gear together for trips and getting work squared away before departing is always madness. I suspect that I won’t be very regular about posting for the next few weeks! And hopefully you’re off someplace nice for a spring break too!

    Here in the French Alps some of the roadies are already back in the saddle and also in shorts – but, of course, they are still heavily outnumbered by the skiers & boarders. There’s been some great skiing in the morning so after a nice long lunch we are happy to head back to base. But then OH gets an itch and can’t resist going out for a spin on his mountain bike.
    Great photo – and love the blog.
    Enjoy your trip!
