Dragonfly chimes From Patty

My friend Patty gave me a beautiful chime with three dragonflies and a bell.  I only painted two of the dragonflies.  I call the bell a Gary Snyder Bell.  Patty and I both enjoy poetry and so Gary Snyder, as a Pulitzer Prize winner and a former Portlander, is a favorite.  I use this kind of bell to reminded me to stay in the moment--that's what I learned from Gary.  Thanks, Patty, for the reminder, and for something beautiful that I have hung in my entry hall.
