the most beautiful day of the year so far! It must have been in the 80ºs. Took the train downtown to Jerry’s Palette Shop to buy the water soluble crayons and oil pastels that Jane told me about. I controlled myself and only bought a few of each. But I already want to add more colors!
Since it was so nice out, I took the train to the Untermeyer Fountain and walked home from there. Picked up dinner so I could work in the journal and experiment.
I remember that long summer
spent in the Appalachian mountains.
The abundant honeysuckle
rambling in the open fields
And the sweet tartness of
the wild raspberries, warmed by the sun.
Wherever we trekked, goodness
