All my life, I've yearned to be back by the salt water - preferably a protected bay or on the Sound, not the ocean. And as long as I was dreaming, why not add in white wicker furniture (and I have no idea why that is so important to me), a view, and tranquility. So yes - I found the perfect little place on Lopez Island. And I'm in love with it! (We'll probably review that thought later on when something leaks or breaks down or I'm stuck because the ferry isn't running....) The minute that I step foot onto the island, though, I feel peaceful. It is home.

And so we begin! For this year I want to document the joys, the challenges, the art, the inspirations, the people - in truth life as an artist on the island. And I'll try to learn from my daughter, that blogging also takes a bit of discipline!
