Birthdays, Birthdays!, A Literary Salon Day, and ‘The Marching In’

A Sketch Just Because…and More Happiness…Continues

Beginning with Feb. 2, ’22: Maybe sketch something just because it is fun to do. I did this one earlier… Masquerade Party—the masks left behind are still lively…and a little boat that is a coconut!

November 2021 I often almost forget the Pisces moon in my sign, but last night I glimpsed its sweet glimmering through the slim hallway window, still tall enough for me to see the moon aglow up high and the rain shimmering around it, before bed. *~ (This is my introduction that connects the book to…… Continue reading My Fun Critique of The Book of Khalid by Ameen Rihani, First Novel in English by An Arab-American Author

All These Songs Woven with the Zodiac

More music I am listening to…a recent favorite song I play often is ”Don’t Go” by Skrillex, Justin Bieber, and Jon Tolliver.

The First Blush of Dawn

I woke and opened my eyes to see this blush of dawn today and smiled warmly. And then the sun and sky through the pines before early morning tea.

Both cups are for me. I like these cute little cups at times with about this amount of tea.
