SORRY FOLKS, THE THINGIST WAS NOT A GOOD FIT. I HAVE MOVE TO www.ofgraceandflavor.blogspot.com Please met there. Thank you.
Yet a new name for my fits-and-start blog. This time, I hope to include guest posts from far-flung relatives and friends. These posts will be as informal and unpretentious as relaxed conversations as those of good neighbours gathered in the back porch. Highbrow disquisitions ex-cathedra pronouncements will be conspicuously absent. This renamed site deals with Thingology, the science of making things. It proposes to engage artists, artisans and those who support them. It is a place to discuss aspirations, ideas, experiences.. Art, crafts, food, gardening, upcycling, music, books,pets will be mentioned, of course. They are part of our lives. So are flights of fancy, occasional exuberance, joyful events and the simple business of living a life enriched by joyful work and play. Come join us. You may bring lemons. We will help you make lemon drops and lemonade. Heck, among us we can use those lemons in paintings, embroidery, knitting and crochet patterns or might just make stories and songs out of them.
