I love mixtures. Puzzles and casseroles and encyclopedias and photo albums. I love recipes with unique ingredients and collections of odds and ends and special treasures that deserve time for a study of all of the details and the history and all of the facets of each piece.
.
I had a wonderful time with #teamturlough on @lightgreyartlab 's Light Grey Art Camp Southern Iceland Culture Tour this last week and I feel like each time I get the chance to talk with a group of people, my favorite part is that getting to know all of the individuals on the team. Everyone is so specific and so special. .
And all together we have a very, very unique collection of characters. I want to thank @jennybookler and everyone on the team for the amazing conversations and for being so nice.

What started as a misty morning became a bright, blue afternoon. We drove past hedges and discussed past jobs we'd had and the unique characters we'd encountered there.
.
I thought about the people I work with and smiled to myself about how specific we all are...
.
In the past I had had a conversation about how we all turn into caricatures of ourselves to others. Your quirks define you and its lovingly mentioned to others that "she's the passionate, existential crisis-having coffee-loving teacher" -or- "she's the list-making, ultra-organized, silly one." -or- the "stoic, game-playing robot man"
.
And even though everyone is much more than that, it's a quick shorthand for reference.
.
On this trip I've got a massive leg brace and a cold and I've been wearing the same outfit for two days so I'm interested in the title someone might give me had they just met me...
.
I made this painting this morning while I was too sore to walk around outside. We visited the Hook Lighthouse and watched for seals in the swell.

We piled into a room with a small framed print of some watercolor teddy bears doing ballet poses hanging onto the yellow walls. It was nearly midnight and we laughed about almost being denied entry into the country.
.
"How much money do you have?" -- I wasn't sure if he meant... in life? Or for this trip? Or... what?
.
I turned red. "Um... a couple thousand bucks and some credit cards." I shuffled in place.
.
The carpet and drapes looked like velvet from a 70s era home magazine, but worn and tired. A mustard yellow to complement the plastic beaded chandelier, and a MDF bunk bed with IKEA sheets. We left our socks on.
.
We sat on the floor for a while and ate lentil chips and at night we whispered about visualization and perpetuating the good in things and I was thankful for jet lag because the conversation was so good.
.
I woke up groggy with dry eyes and a weird cough and somehow felt amazingly liberated to be abroad again.
.
"Ready for this adventure?" I said? And we were off.

I want to take off my shoes and bury my toes in the earth. I want to sit in the cool autumn air in my sweater, under cloudy skies and watch the leaves fall. I want to have a day where I can just sleep for hours and hours without feeling rushed. I want a lazy Wednesday or a lazy Saturday. I want to throw my phone and my computer into the ocean and feel liberated by doing so.

There are so many sounds that break the silence of a still lake. Tiny gas bubbles from the murky bottom break the tension on the still surface. A heron's wings beat the air as it passes over lily pad patterned waters. You can hear the whispers of others in hushed voices as they glide toward shore.
.
I wanted to lie down in the bottom of that canoe and stare up at the grey sky for hours. Time could stop and I'd be content in that moment for ages. It was a great feeling of being alone but in motion with the rest of the environment.
.
And under cloud covered skies I got a bit of time to relax amidst this amazing adventure with 11 incredible people on this @lightgreyartlab art camp before going back to our base and creating, learning and exploring.
.
Thanks, everyone, for such an awesome time! His was a much needed break from all of the computer work and the stresses of life!

Where I go tomorrow will be informed by how I navigated through today, and how I choose to remember yesterday.

I'm always impressed at the diversity of little plants coexisting in space. This is a patch of earth found in Norway. These little arctic plants thrive together, making an exceptionally intricate pattern of shapes and colors.
.
This photo is one of several in my collection of inspirational images for new patterns. One day soon I may have a bit more time to draw and I'd like to make a repeating pattern of these to add to my collection of obsessive works.

It's been a while since I got to just it down and play with all of my mystical goodies. I took this shot for one of Light Grey Art Lab's new Young Mystics workshops and I wish I could be there in person to see it happen. Keeli o'Brien is doing a workshop on runes, which sounds amazing.
.
One rune in particular seems to be my favorite these days: ᛞ
.
"Dagaz – “Day-gahz” – Literally: “Day” or Dawn – Esoteric: Awakening

Rune of the hyper-consciousness. The process of concept becoming realized.

Psi: paradoxical truth, incommunicable experience, conceptual realization, Enlightenment, satori

Energy: twilight/dawn polarity, non-dual reality, unity, synthesis, transmutation

Mundane: another day, daylight, the inevitability of dawn

Divinations: Awakening, awareness, hope-happiness, the ideal, paradigm shift; or lack of vision, sleep, blindness, hopelessness, cataclysmic change."-- from runesecrets.com

Jadey and I are listening to Romanian Europop with our business faces on.

Fall is my busy time, when everything is exploding and I'm in robot mode with a calendar in one hand and a coffee in the other. Anyone else feel the fall vibes yet?

Wishing for a little cabin in the woods.... like this!
.
... but Minneapolis is pretty amazing... and I'm glad to be home. Did you know you can buy a prefab cabin for 5k? I didn't either until this week! It's funny, I bet if you were pretty handy you could just build one! Is that weird if I build one in my backyard? Lol. Maybe.
.
Maybe not!

This photo was taken eat Odda, near the Buerbreen glacier in Norway.
