This morning I rose early, ignoring my hot breakfast long enough to sneak a quick drawing.

In the source photo the photographer Willem Wernsen is studying books on black and white photography. I have my student learning about planets and stars. Meanwhile I urge you to go look at his photos. Here is a brief bio about him. (His own website is only in Dutch.) For many years he just did photography in his rare spare time, and now his talent has been discovered and he has a book of his photos.

A while back I was telling one would be musician who was complaining that he couldn't give all day to music that isn't an hour or so better than nothing? So I pull what time I can from each day, and slowly, slowly I am improving.
