Yes, it is snowing AGAIN.

On Friday I was out shopping, but neglected to buy enough food, because I couldn’t carry it along with the electric blanket (you should know that I walk everywhere, so I am limited to what I can carry over long distances).  Also I had just eaten.  You know how they always tell you to shop when you’re full so you don’t buy too much food?  That advice works too well.  I was so stuffed I didn’t want to look at any food, so I bought almost nothing, then I get home and am HUNGRY.

Sundays with Clyfford Still: Superb Owl edition (1.5)

Welcome to Sundays With Clyfford Still.  I’m your host, M.K. Hajdin.

Before I leave you, though, I want to explain why I am hosting this blog.

I got to know Clyfford Still through images of his work alone.  Something about them just grabbed me and wouldn’t let go.  The man himself was something of a mystery.

Sundays with Clyfford Still invites you to follow along as we look at Still’s work and try to understand his personality and his life.

Now go look at last week’s post!  And next week, I’ll be talking more about the mystery surrounding Clyff.
