Last weekend we went to visit our son in Durham, NC and had a great time exploring the area. I had never been to NC before, so absolutely everything was new and surprising. I didn't expect the tall pine trees everywhere, the interesting and kind people we met, the fabulous art and terrific food. Here is a peak into my journal as I worked with pencil, pen and watercolor (plus a little collage). We stayed at the Morehead Manor in Durham - WOW. Fabulous, inspirational, welcoming and an oasis of humanity. Many thanks to Monica and Daniel (proprietors) who were incredibly generous with their time and insights.
