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.
