Out Of The Fog....

....more or less.....

Two weeks of illness blur is equal to watching fog lift slowly.


But even in that, there were some good moments, some beautiful like the one above, captured in the wet of morning, dew shining like little diamonds on the web! Sun soon ready to burn away the gray blanket across the fields, but leaving a bit of magic.
I have been GOOD. (mark that in red on your calenders kiddies.....)
Rest, rest, rest.
Staying away from the computer for the most part.
Reading a lot~~which was very nice. Time to catch up.
Doing a bit of handwork in between many, many naps.
Feeling a little more human today and trying to decide how long the energy will last. (long enough for errands? at least a few?)
I am NOT a good patient on the best of days and yes, I did spend a bit of studio time yesterday without too much guilt. Just little things, but sufficient that I have the worktable almost clear, another project in the works--well, parts all spread out--and a piece hanging in the house. The final solutions for it came to me in my fog. (maybe it's good for us once in a while...to slooooooow down.....) It finally spoke, I listened and proceeded cautiously as it  had been such a stinker to tell me what it wanted to be finished properly. Need to get photos to post.
Sorry I have missed your blogs and other items; sometimes you just have to disconnect a bit.
Hoping next week to be up and at 'em and full of pith again.
I miss my pith.
And I need to make sure there are no typos in that previous sentence! LOL!


Pax....

Anne, sorry to hear you have been down but glad to hear you are on the mend! This my friend is an amazing photo!! Even at our low moments we can find beauty, its always around us somewhere if we look hard enough right?

Miss you! xoxo

Ima Weed said...

So good to hear that you are on the mend. Continue on, going slow for best results.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Cathy,

Slowly on the mend!
I have to admit I was running out in the sopping wet in bunny slippers to get that photo; I probably should have been *IN*, but you know how it goes with the perfect photo! :-)

XXOO~~
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I am delighted to have enough braincells working to put this post up today~~hoping that I keep feeling better and can get rid of the fatigue, which is still here.....I know.....BEHAVE! ;-D

XXOO~~
Anne

Janet Ghio said...

Anne-what a wonderful photo!!I am so glad you are feeling better. You have been missed!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Janet!
I have a hard time with webs and the auto focus on the camera. Sometimes *I* see them, but it doesn't. This was so heavy with water though....well, how could it miss???

XXOO~~
Anne

kj said...

you are a quite a photographer. that web shot is so amazing, how magical to come across it, anne

you have been missed. i'm glad your time has been restful and beneficial. sway gently my friend, take your time xoxoxox

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Karen,
I have to admit, I've felt a bit like I've been in suspended animation....just like the water on that web.
Two weeks have seemed AGES in *Anne-Time*. I'm sure it was a YEAR.... ;-D
Taking my time working back to full speed. Not hurrying at all.

XXOO~~
Anne

audrey said...

You are a smart lady, Anne, to take that needed rest. It is hard to do when we creative souls want to be busy from morning till night. Until our bodies tell us different, we push and push and push.
I hope the worst is behind you and the blurs are wearing off. You sound better and I hope you really do take your time in working back to full speed.
I am eager to see what you created during the time you spent in your studio. Sometimes when we are moving a little slower physically, it puts our minds in a state of tranquility and the art is a little different than our usual mix.
SO happy to see this post. GORGEOUS WEB, Anne!!!
xxxxx oooooo and ♥♥♥♥ audrey

Elena said...

Glenn Stenson said...

Bet I can out pith you when you're at full strength, sister!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Audrey,

Man, I did a few errands and then WHAM~~I sat down and the next thing I knew, I was sound asleep! (soooooo, maybe I am still in the fog more than I thought) LOL!
Wake just in time to figure out dinner!

XXOO~~
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Elena!

XXOO~~

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey marianne,

I never listen...never. So the body is really letting me have it this time.
And I think my ears have been cleaned out and I am listening now!

XXOO~~
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Glenn,

I have no doubt....looking forward to it! ;-D

Amalia K said...

Anne darling, so sorry for being sucky at visiting! And you weren't feeling well?? Ugh, now I feel bad. :((

Well, I hope you're feeling better... I'd hate to think of you being slowed down, but hey, some rest always do good,right? (^_^)

Miss ya! oxx

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Amalia, dear, I have been awful at visiting any blogs so no need to apologize!
I am on the mend, and I honestly believe my body just said "Hey! STUPID! Enough!!!".......and two weeks down.
And a 2 hour nap this afternoon that was delicious!
Getting rested is WONDERFUL! :-)

XXOO~~
Anne

Debra She Who Seeks said...

May you soon be full of pith and vinegar again, LOL!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Debra!

Yes, I miss BOTH! LOL!!! Although I've had a lot of *pith*.....hahahaha!

XXOO~~

Magpie's Mumblings said...

So glad that you're feeling somewhat mended. Just don't rush the process! Sometimes an enforced rest is a good thing for an artist because it then lets the brain cells act in full force. Take care of you!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Well M.A.~~I will just say it.
I went and overdid it today and am paying dearly tonight. So a weekend of REST is on the agenda.
If I just did not need to bank or buy groceries...LOL!!! ;-D
And yes, I have to be forced to rest...

XXOO~~
Anne

studio lolo said...

perhaps you should don a pith helmet for your re-entry! You made me laugh about typos!

I know how you feel though. man, coming out of the fog into the light is tough even though we feel compelled to be "present."
I can tell you we'll be here whan you're up to coming back.

Gorgeous web. WOW!!

xoxo
Lolo♥

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Lolo!
That's a GREAT idea! ah-hahahahaha! (actually, I was so groggy, I was living in fear of a typo...)
Ready to feel all better NOW.
Right now. Not in five minutes or ten.
Phooey! ;-D

XXOO~~
Anne

Lori ann said...

beautiful photo anne, i hope coming across that made you feel a bit better.
xox

Jan said...

fantastic capture of the spider net! Glad you are recovering and getting your spunk back. Take it easy, we don't want you relapsing.

Jan said...

Hey, are you tweeting now? Got too sick of FB?

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Lori,

You bet that photo made me feel GOOD! I don't often get the chance to shoot those out in the open (not in the flowerbed) where there is so much detail. Loved the idea of it being on the clothesline~~like it was hanging to dry! :-)

XXOO~~
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Jan,

I know you've had some nice web captured from using ink on them and fabric~~this one would probably have been good for that.
Well, without the water on it.
I am seriously thinking about moving off Face Book altogether. Too many changes, especially things that deal with privacy of who can see what. Fed up with their constant tinkering. May check out Google+ and see how it looks.
And I tweet a whole lot less than the birds do! LOL!!!!

XXOO~~
Anne

Bunny said...

Hi! It has been a while happy you are feeling better. I am recovering from rotator cuff surgery. Had it done on sept. 2nd and doing great. Hard to type one handed and left one at that.lol
Keep well love the photo.
Hugs Bunny

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Bunny!

Good to hear from you~~I think we're having a competition to see who can have the most parts worked on....LOL!
Glad things are going well and I cannot imagine typing with one hand. I can barely peck out anything readable with two! LOL!
Hope everything progresses good and fast for you!

XXOO~~
Anne

yoborobo said...

Anne - I've been thinking of moving over to Google +, as well. I've never been a FB fan. I should Tweet, too. Tweet, tweet. Feel better, sweetie! That photo is outstanding. xox

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Pam,

Tweet tweet back atcha! (I don't even do that often...omg...too much time getting sucked up)
I'm with ya on Google +.
Mass migration.......hear that sucking sound??? LOL!!!

XXOO~~

We have missed you and I am so glad you took care to be resting and renewing. xox Corrine

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Well Corrine, it's pouring rain today, so I am stuck in the studio, resting somewhat and cutting and gluing....I'm pretty sure that counts as rest, doesn't it??? :-D

XXOO~~
Anne

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy said...

Oh Anne I missed my pith, piss or path or whatever too. Trying to get back in the swing. Your music helps. Blessings

Susie Jefferson said...

You'll feel so much better when back to yourself and full of pith and vinegar again. Meantime, love love love this photo - so atmospheric. Just lovely (sigh)

april said...

Glad you're feeling better. Beautiful photo! I walked right into one of those yesterday morning when taking the dog out!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Peggy,

Believe me, I've missed it too. Looks like maybe one more week. ACK!
Can I survive that long??? LOL!

XXOO~~
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Yep Susie, I need to get back to going nonstop like a hopping flea.
Right now, I feel more like a slow snail....he!he!
And it is annoying!

XXOO~~
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey April,

Some of the webs are soooo easy to see and other you have to look for. I walked through some single strings of web and the wet hit my face but I never did see the silk. It was the funniest feeling!
Thanks on the photo~~I am happy with it!

XXOO~~
Anne
