Today's post requires some explanation. A local youth organization sponsors art projects that permit (typically young) participants to express their creative skills in various sites around town. Here, we have an exhibition of 12 hand-made émouvantails. This word is itself a clever invention created by combining two French words, épouvantail (scarecrow) and émouvant (moving, touching). The épouvantail pictured caught my eye because it reminds me of a Native American dreamcatcher.
