Easter weekend and a walk on the beach
following in the footsteps of my beautiful daughter
over the wet sands
and hard rocks
she leaves her mark
on surfaces in the sand
and so she continues ahead of me
until she waits
and turns to smile
walking with love on the beach

We needed to do something
to support the people trying to protect the mountain
Now we have set up a fb page
a space for artists to post their work
As creative thinkers, artists can play a unique roll in advocating for positive change. Artists can use their creativity to not only support a cause, but to raise awareness in general.
Artists for Protecting Our Planet aims to do just that.
If you are inclined to make a statement via some public art for raising awareness about protecting our precious planet, then we invite you to post your work on this fb page. Photos or videos of your work or creative other works you encounter in your environment would be most welcome.
It is our hope that all creative souls will participate. We envision, poets, musicians, writers, photographers, visual artists, artisans, young people, makers of all kinds contributing to this group.
Let’s use our Art For Change
Thanks for joining,
Artists for Protecting Our Planet

Two new entries for the library project
Above, the image is from the cover of a mystery by Barbara Vine.
Barbara Vine was being read by a fictional character
in a Margaret Drabble Novel I was reading….as I hadn’t read
or heard of Barbara Vine, I got the Chimney Sweeper’s Boy
from the library next time I was there. Love the cover photograph.
A mausoleum for a Fine and Private Place.
…and below is a quote from A Tale for a Time Being
by Ruth Ozeki. Loved the book but not featured in the library project.
(too many books…not enough drawing)
Just wanted to include this quote below.
