“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”

Murphy's Dancing

I had a wonderful surprise today. On Saturday we got a slip in the mail box that said we needed to pick up a package at the post office. So today, I went down and picked it up and what a surprise it was. Terry Busse (at terrybusse.blogspot.com) sent me the fabric art work that she had done about my goat Murphy. I was so pleased that she wanted to tell his story about the night I caught him dancing. It was a full moon night and he was up on his back feet entertaining the other goats. When I wrote the post about him dancing ,Terry emailed me and asked if I would mind if she did a fabric piece about Murphy dancing to the full moon. I said yes, I'd be honored. She told me that she was having a show at the Davis Art Center in August and "Murphy's Midnight Dance" was one of the pieces of art that would be hung there. Murph' has definitely had more than his 15 minutes of fame because of all of this.
I was able to go down and see the show. It was wonderful! Terry is so talented. I mean there is quilting and then there is quilt art and I'm in awe of what she can do .

I can't begin to thank you enough, Terry. Just know that I will treasure this piece of art and take good care of it. We won't be able to live with Murphy for a while but that's ok. I'm sure he will be wearing sunglasses and struting around here like a big shot, but we can live with him acting famous for a while because...,well ..., he is!! Thank you so much.
