From the dryer - was changing the wash and cleaned the lint filter. Put it on a piece of paper on the sofa so I could look at it for a while. It's a wonder we have any clothing left, we produce so much lint as a household.

I love dryer lint. Is that weird? Your painting reminded me of a poem I wrote, featuring a laundromat and lint. Here's an excerpt:

The lint in the tray is soft speckled grey:
Leftovers of some stranger's laundry.
I'd like to keep it --
Collect the lint of a hundred machines,
Weave a familiar eclectic sweater
To wear when the wind threatens my warmth.

(I posted the whole poem on my blog: http://thewordcellar.blogspot.com/2008/08/laundry-poem.html).

Thanks for the inspiration for a blog post!
