Back from Africa

G’day, Blog Buddies!
We filmed the Sangoma film (whose name we’re changing) in South Africa, and I’m back home in Connecticut! The filming, the experience of being in Africa- was unquantifiable, really, and what can I say? It was real! Here’s the last film update piece- you can meet Antoinette and Oom Johannes and it’s ok to fall in love:

Also here’s the Mary and Kingfisher picture:

Today I moved furniture bits into the yurt (in the backyard woods). The top of the yurt is a glass bubble window that lets in the sun! I’m excited about making pictures by overhead sunlight. I brought some of my treasures back there. Last night my pal Janet and more very dear friends threw me a surprise 30th birthday party! I was so surprised that I didn’t realize the party was for me at first! They roasted me then played bright pictures from childhood family and friends… and now am feeling completely sent off in this little ship. Off you go into that next ocean, kiddo! My family and friends in Beaufort, South Carolina and family in Florida likewise filled up the heart with joyful kindness and now I feel this life has been thoroughly good wished on account of being 30. So that’s all quite pleasant!

Yes, so m’studio is in the yurt now. I will put some bird feeders out there. Here’s a little ditty I wrote on birds near Addo and the elephants:

Birds are Beings born of Song,
clothed note by note in a thing called feathers,
which take the colors of the Heavens and blend them
together for the purpose of the Sky
having Music, and flowers with Eyes.

A pic of the last delight before flying out. Lions got good good love… G’night….
Peace upon ye head- peace to your sweet heart- from the end to the start.
