During a blizzard the night before Thanksgiving a flash of pink lightning and a clap of thunder – the wonder and mystery of nature were reborn –

P.M. – Edgar Schenck came out & picked up “Sun & Rocks” and “Song of the Marsh” for the Contemporary Art Room Committee to consider as a purchase – (we agreed on $2500 as a minimum).

 Who does not like to be melancholy once in a while, especially when nature is the cause? I like to tramp through the dry leaves and twigs and hear the mournful wind sob thru the sleeping branches. 

Thanksgiving day – Hank went with us, (and Peggy and Tommy) to the church service, which was at 10:00.

An artist should make all the physical acts of his everyday life conform to the laws of nature—

A cold damp lowery morning – intensely brilliant horizon sky; tops + edges of all things jet black + vibrating –

All day in Studio, redrawing my study for “Black Walnut” (which I also think of as “The Double Bed” on First Sight) – the material for which I got at Bertha’s old home (the “boys” bedroom) several years ago.
