Water Tiger

Posted by Dirck on 4 February, 2022

I was looking as someone’s lunar astrology prognostication for the upcoming year, and in explaining the cycle of elements the signs pass through, they mentioned that putting “water” and “cat” together strikes some as unlikely.


Today’s pen: Parker 45

Day What How Much Pen Ink
  • 31 January
  • 1 February
  • 2 February
  • 3 February
  • First draft of “Golden Hour”.
  • Some New Year arting.
  • Buying yet more bird food.
  • See Monday
  • Three manuscript pages.
  • Below…
  • 20 kg.
  • The same

On the subject of bird seed– it’s been below -25 the past three days (normal February stuff, here), and birds eat a lot to avoid turning to feathery lumps of ice. That bag may last a week.

The progress on the story seems slight, but compared to the whole of last year, I’m pretty happy about it. The deadline is not frightening me yet.

And finally– Merry Water Tiger, all. Tuesday’s pen and even more the ink was chosen specifically for the day, and I was taken with an urge to do a bit of art with them. I share, with the proviso that I make no claims to skill in graphic arts (that’s my brother’s department).

I am not a cat (a statement which is true in at least three separate ways)
