So as we know, artist's ( or those who are attempting aka...me) need to get their hands dirty/painted sometimes....I certainly enjoyed dabbling in some paint....little did i know i would make a landscape out of it :) I was thinking of some homemade art for my mom for her birthday on October 4Th?? I'm sure she'd like it considering how much she kept during my younger years......Hope you gals had a great weekend.....Cheers...:)

This is my best friend, my youngest brother, and myself aloooong time ago ( I'm wearing the pink sweater)...she and i are still friends. I'm older, she's older and the baby isn't a baby anymore :( The point is is that good friends are worth fighting for...she's the sister i never had and I'm glad she's in my life (Of course the brother is too :) In the words of the great Thomas Jefferson... "Friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine"........what more can a wise man say....Here's to friends...personal, blogger, and anything else that encompasses knowing one another :)

So these were some photos from our plane landing in Akron/Canton (Ohio) Airport....Not a big fan of flying, but there is somethings that can't be captured from the ground up, so i tried from the Air down view:) Neat cloud formations and such beautiful skies, i almost felt like i had my own wings looking at some cotton balls waiting for me to snuggle up with :) If anything, it was a good distraction from the turbulence.....Happy floating...wheeeeeeeeee!

So one of my favorite authors is Alexander Mccall Smith ( photo above..he publishes the book series "The No. 1 Ladies Dectective Agency")..... Well in my readings today in his chapter of "Blue Shoes and Happiness" a bird named the "Ground Hornbill" was causing some bad karma and superstitions in a small village in Africa....Long chapter short...the bird was a problem, but the beauty was that his character couldn't have put something so perfectly in words, the quote says it all...."This bird is one of our brothers and sisters. We are returning it to the ground from which it came, the ground from which we came too. and now we put the soil upon it..."..."the resting place of us all----of people, of animals, of birds..." How beautiful and how pure.....Read his series they are wonderful..Thank you Alexander Mccall Smith for wise and honest writings....
