I often think of the line in the movie 'You've Got Mail' featuring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, where his character writes in an email, ."Don't you just love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address." I have always loved that line, but instead of pencils I think of painting tools. Fall is my favorite season, but the spring here is often reminiscent of it, with fluctuating temperatures that make me long for summer days but then dropping enough to be able to wear my favorite sweater. When I can open my studio window to enjoy breezes and bird song. Perfect days indeed!
