Colors erupting, Branches waltzing in the wind, Welcoming the night. —Janet Haiku #2 Word of the Day Challenge: Waltzing
With every sunset a new hope is born, and an old expectation dies. Noor Unnahar
I’m actually getting a late start on word prompts tonight. I really do enjoy those, but trying to fit multiple words into a poem or story is—to be honest—exhausting me. I think I need a word for the “week,” so that I have time to digest it, and ponder what the word really means to […]
I wanted to do something colorful tonight, so here you have it! Writer’s block has been preventing me from writing much of anything about my study of the word TRUST. Every single time I’ve tried! So weird! Anyway… I’m surrendering on the production of that post. At least until the words come streaming in. And I trust […]
I’m really liking the action around here today! This is the squirrel that chased the parrots away; munching on a loquat. I guess nature is dictating what I’ll be taking photographs of this season! I’ve added some fun color and the squirrel is a bit hidden (like his henchman) behind a leaf, so I did a zoom […]
I’m still here. Waiting on someone to arrive and had to do one more. This was a shadow on the back wall this morning, and I tweaked the effects and hues until it sang to me. I wasn’t sure what the colors were tying to tell me, but then I realized it’s a call to break […]

Don’t go in there! 😉 I ended up back around the old zoo today. It’s so beautiful outside, and they have some (gentle) inclines to walk (but I really felt it in my hamstrings!). I think I should get a Fitbit someday and see just how much walking I really do when I go out.
In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principle, stand like a rock. -Thomas Jefferson
Last train for now. I think I’m done experimenting for today. I’m going to sit down with something in mind and REALLY stick to the agenda later today. I saw a train in the graphic design book I bought, and managed to get lost in the whole train idea in the process. Still working on transitions […]
Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint you can on it. Danny Kaye
I made a mistake in my post last night (early this morning) about the roses. I started out merging two separate flowers, but it was actually an overlay of the same rose that I ended up doing. Not that it matters, but I realized that this morning. They just look different because of the overlay […]

Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny. C. S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Magical is my mood for tomorrow. I’ve already decided that. I caught a few minutes of a show my mom was watching… and a teacher was telling his student that her imagination was […]
Today’s mood is playful! We never really grow up… We only learn how to act in public.
