An artist-naturalist splashes through streams of consciousness... often, it's even her own...

Dateline: Marblehead. While relaxing on the lakehouse's deck, we happened to notice an animal barely keeping its head above water in the channel where all the boats are docked. My niece Dakota jumped into the channel and saved this nearly fledge bird. I'm tentatively ID'ing it as a juvenile mockingbird, but if anyone has a better insight, please post!!
I'm REALLY proud of Dakota. That was quite a feat!!
I'm deliriously, happily married to Rick. We have a basenji named Cleopatra and 3 manic (as a result of the dog) cats. They all appear on the blog regularly, as does the garden. On occasion, you may mistake this for the local Ag Report, but I assure you I am an artist, and eventually my work will make an appearance.
In the meantime, I find enjoyment in life's daily distractions.
We work to be part of the solution in Cleveland as members of a giving circle called The Cleveland Colectivo, giving microgrants to grassroots neighborhood projects throughout Cleveland and the inner-ring suburbs.
Rick and I are avid bike riders, and we captain a BikeMS team called Patti's Paladins. Visit our team website pattispaladins.com to learn how you can help us fight Multiple Sclerosis. Join us for a ride!
