My New Little House

I am settled into my new house in Penn Yan.  It is a cape cod with about 960 square feet of space.  I have lots of stuff. Luckily there is second floor attic space to hold my excess.  I have a new plan in life to acquire as little stuff as possible.  After I moved in I was overcome with the desire to create more of my little prayer dolls.  They are the exception to my rule. I do about one a day and have added nine or so to my collection.  I am in the process of creating my grandmother and great aunt. They are twins. I don't say were twins because I consider the doll in some respects, alive.   It is as though there is a sliver of their spirit in them put in by the process of my mental recollection of the person during their creation.  I wonder why I was so impelled to create poppets as soon as I unpacked.

I think that the village of Penn Yan is somewhat magical.  My son told me that he heard that there was a stonehenge type of rock formation on the Bluff. Keuka lake is Y shape and the bluff is the point of land in between the forks of the lake.  When ill  in 2013 I imagined that there was a passage the the cellar of a house (that is at the end of the bluff) that had a portal to a different world....This is an idea similar to the wardrobe in Narnia Chronicles.  I like to fantasize that the lake has an energy that fuels the center of my creativity.

Thanks Dad!
