Unfolding The Way With Sky Blushes, A Falling Book, And A Suddenly Seen Keurig Machine

The morning sky today easily put some blush upon my face too. 😊🙏 Windows I’d just cleaned yesterday on both sides, including the glass door, and yes, my plants are looking more alive again, was excited to wake up today and see what the view would be through such clear glass… And there was another…… Continue reading Unfolding The Way With Sky Blushes, A Falling Book, And A Suddenly Seen Keurig Machine

September Eighth, Safekeepings

Tues., Sept. 7 ‘21 My calendar showed me it was time to open the book with the snow-flowers and the rose, as I’d learned that flowers preserve more easily if the book that holds them is kept closed ‘til it’s time. The snow-flowers were like a mysterious gift taken off the stems at their fullness…… Continue reading September Eighth, Safekeepings

You May Now Have a Strawberry and Hand-Picked Poetry

6:32 pm: Tuesday’s note actually appears There it is, the strawberry I’d offered you that is now ripe and ready to eat; the plants are safely secured, not swinging in a possible storm, and it happens to have two other surprise strawberries with it to ripen later—Here, enjoy it!

A Photo Walk Inside

And the rest for readers will begin now… Hi and welcome 😊🙏. A saltwater floral candle lit on the mantle, a ‘vintage’ Target purchase—most candles last a long time as I don’t light mine so long that it destroys the senses when you were truly just hoping for some soothing relaxation. Subtly beach antique without…… Continue reading A Photo Walk Inside

Tiny Sure Buds and Snow-flowers, Small But Meaningful Changes

late afternoon yesterday This Sunday, I’ll be attending as a guest and also reading a poem of my own for the first time online at an art and poetry event. I had done maybe a few Open Mics at Brooklyn College when I was a student there and at the time I preferred much more…… Continue reading Tiny Sure Buds and Snow-flowers, Small But Meaningful Changes

Blush and Plenty of It

The sky was azure blue when I woke and I said good morning. I sometimes practice saying ‘May’, with emphasis on the y accent for fun as I can spell a word now in a new language, her name: مي. She painted the sky just then with plenty of blush (I know in heaven a…… Continue reading Blush and Plenty of It

A Music Idea for Writers and Artists

Do you make a music playlist of inspiration for your works in progress, maybe a book of poems or a novel? I do, just recently for book three. I have a few playlists and I just made two new ones today. 2:19 pm I see; that’s my birthday, February born. Chamber music is a new…… Continue reading A Music Idea for Writers and Artists

A Profession I Am Not Pursuing and A Dream to Match It

I like to write poems and sometimes read them aloud. And enjoy a restful yoga night. I may paint another canvas soon. I hadn’t liked the way these pants fell, but I wasn’t crazy about them anyway but comfortable ‘loungewear’ and you will see why I don’t think that I should hem your clothes at…… Continue reading A Profession I Am Not Pursuing and A Dream to Match It

Afternoon Brings Envelopes, Lessons, and Literary and Artistically Appealing Things for Future Days

(This is long and very free to skip.) There have been so many things to settle these past five days mostly related to things like daily life and errands that don’t need to be explored here but made me realize I needed some more rest today. And so the early morning hours, I first sent…… Continue reading Afternoon Brings Envelopes, Lessons, and Literary and Artistically Appealing Things for Future Days

Music to Drink In and Fanciful Scenes That Could Be

Mattapoisett, MA One of my inspirations for writing and painting is music even though I am not musically talented or wish to create it myself. (I would sing perpetually off key and was classified in chorus as mezzo-soprano but I think that was a guess of not enough information.) For me there is very little…… Continue reading Music to Drink In and Fanciful Scenes That Could Be

A Day of Rest I’d Finally Kept and Piano Music With Great Company

Yesterday was a rest for me I actually kept, a solitary one that soon felt not so solitary. I thought of this musician Erik Satie I’d heard of many years ago and not at all since then. I liked his music better now and I loved this piano one of his, Gnossienne No. 7 and…… Continue reading A Day of Rest I’d Finally Kept and Piano Music With Great Company

A Mid-Summer’s Night Thunder

a recent photo of the poetry section at the library as I’d found it extended even more than I first saw My first painting in awhile that I’d posted on the blog, “The Storm That Shook Me” was an expression of the soul-stirring effects of different kinds of storms. (The links on the top of…… Continue reading A Mid-Summer’s Night Thunder

Resolution, Something That Scared Me, And The Moon I Greeted

Resolution It was a nice idea I had to not talk about my own thoughts or views today but it didn’t happen; no apologies, no one needed to hear and maybe I needed to say it, so I am not sorry about not keeping my plan, and I listened, which was more important to me…… Continue reading Resolution, Something That Scared Me, And The Moon I Greeted

My Pencil Tracing Up and On

/.≥≥≥≥≥≥≥≥≥≥.//////////////; My cat Peeko typed the above and is now standing proudly and accomplished. It was exciting to see that I had found some forgotten sketches in this forgotten Van Gogh blank book. Yesterday I sketched the beginning of the painting I wish to paint next and will add to it next time as what…… Continue reading My Pencil Tracing Up and On

The First Painted Fiction I Read and A Paintbrush to Hold

* Sometime in the night I opened my eyes a moment to a very big golden moon and so bright, better than the dreams I had that I don’t remember. The moon will be full in Capricorn and it is called the Strawberry moon among other names. And now onto the book review… I hadn’t…… Continue reading The First Painted Fiction I Read and A Paintbrush to Hold

Treasures I’ve Found

Painting Ideas I have three different ideas for paintings with imagined imagery and two have possible titles, and I won’t tell you about any of them in this post. The last time I set up, I was impressed with the clear wrapper I took off the canvas. The session was over even without me painting…… Continue reading Treasures I’ve Found
