Ink Report

So many of us . . all around the world . . . spending a month drawing in ink
I imagined hearing a mega-voice calling out "Pens Down!"
Like school testing days.
I learned a lot
may learn about new tools and methods
to try again next year.
Every once in a while I'd go back to a drawing and color it in . . . 
(shhh, don't tell)
 Today I picked up a pencil (yay!)
But, i also used a Pitt Artist Pen for the first time (phooey)
perhaps I've gone mad

Okay, I'm off to find "inky" music

The year of "suddenly."

Now it is "Suddenly" chilly
and will rain heavily for a day or so

It's okay.
My pup and i are happy walking trails
wet or dry

Here's a peek from a Fall Garden Visit
Surely this "Suddenly" 
will cause a new season to display

Last visit I found myself interested in pathways
as you can imagine
in a large, world class botanical garden
there are plenty of pathways
i suppose life is a little like that
but - this thought is too big for me today
 I did stop in a new exhibit.
the people were nice
surprised to see me
i was glad to get back outside
(perhaps a story for another day - okay, maybe not 😉)
Thank you for taking time to visit today

see you soon.

love & love.

Cape Albeon

 Several Times a year I get to visit this village.

Everything about the place is lovely

Especially the people.

It seems tucked away
and special

Always reluctant to leave
Look forward to the next invitation.

Way back in a corner where the public rarely goes
 is a tiny grove of Dawn Redwood Trees from China
